ANNUAL DISEASE MODELING SYMPOSIUM
The research and modeling team at IDM is focused on providing support to disease eradication programs and other global health endeavors through a variety of modeling and statistical approaches. We build mechanistic agent-based models in order to understand model assumptions and input data, examine the effects of population-level and within-host phenomena, and stimulate the impact of combined interventions, especially for all phases of an eradication effort.

The IDM Fall 2022 Symposium will be held on Friday, October 28th from 8am to 5pm PST in Seattle, WA. Our program includes a mixture of scheduled sessions, lightning talks, and tool demos!
Our keynote will be delivered by Dr. Catherine Kyobutungi, Executive Director of APHRC ( https://aphrc.org/person/catherine-kyobutungi/)
To register for virtual or in-person attendance or contact the IDM team with questions, please email [email protected].
With the continued spread of COVID during the pandemic, we made the difficult decision to cancel the planned 2021 Symposium until we feel it is safer to gather in person for scientific discussion and collaboration.
In light of the continued spread of COVID cases worldwide, we have made the difficult decision to not host an alternative IDM Modeling Symposium in 2020. Over the past several weeks, we have actively discussed and explored possible approaches including a virtual symposium but feel that the structure and program format would not provide the opportunity for scientific discussion and collaboration. We remain dedicated to supporting these values and believe that the Symposium’s greatest strength lies within the connections that are created as a result of this event. As many organizations, businesses and schools are shifting to remote-only work environments and suspending business travel, we will continue to follow these practices to do our part to slow the transmission and protect all communities.
We will continue to monitor and evaluate the pandemic and follow public health policies against our planned 2021 April Symposium. It is our hope that the situation will permit an in-person conference and that you will be able to attend.
