Versione stampabile
This international summer school aims at presenting state-of-the art techniques to exploit the available data to improve our understanding of epidemic dynamics and spread. 
The topics will include:
  • computational and statistical methods for analyzing epidemiological data, as well as data arising from new technological tools (such as genetic analysis, social media...);
  • methods for inferring detailed mobility and contact patterns to be integrated in global epidemic models.
The school will include some hours of computer practice in the application of the methods, and it is intended for Ph.D. students, beginning post-docs and advanced Master’s students, preferably with some experience in the area.


To take part in the school it is necessary to register, the fee is 250 Euros but the registration is closed.
