The MIDAS Network Meeting will be a great opportunity to network with colleagues, form new relationships, and hear about the latest research in infectious disease modeling. The program includes research talks, panel discussions with funding and public health agencies, tutorials, working groups, poster presentations, and networking events. We aim to create an exciting program with a diverse group of presenters, including many students and postdocs. Registration is open to the public at no charge. Visit the MIDAS 2020 conference website.
Also, following MIDAS 2020, the 8th Annual Disease Modeling Symposium organized by the Institute for Disease Modeling (IDM) takes place in nearby Bellevue on April 20-22. Spend the weekend in Seattle with friends and family and attend both infectious disease modeling events!
The theme of this year’s MIDAS meeting will be “Envisioning the Future of Infectious Disease Modeling”. Infectious diseases continue to be a threat to public health worldwide, as illustrated by the Ebola and 2019 Novel Coronavirus epidemics. During MIDAS 2020, we will identify innovations in modeling methods, data, and collaboration needed during the next decade to successfully counter existing and new infectious diseases. On April 15, a panel comprised of representatives from the NIH, NSF, and the Gates Foundation, will discuss their vision on the future of infectious disease modeling. On April 16, a panel of public health agencies will discuss anticipated future applications of modeling research to epidemic preparedness and response.
