IDM’s 6th annual disease modeling symposium is set to kick off Monday, April 16 at the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue.
The theme of this year’s Symposium is “Software Accelerating Research” with many sessions focusing on a variety of software modeling tools and algorithms where analytics and quantitative analysis can help address difficult questions.

The Symposium will showcase more than 75 speakers from a variety of fields and backgrounds. The keynote session will focus on emerging researchers in global health. The Symposium will once again feature several emerging researchers discussing topics ranging from spatiotemporal modeling of malaria in Malawi to leptospirosis in northeastern Thailand to seasonality and risk in pandemic influenza and mass vaccination options for norovirus.
