As part of this initiative, our team is organizing a National Symposium on Predicting Emergence of Virulent Entities by Novel Technologies (PREVENT), that will be held on February 22 and 23.
We have a great set of plenary speakers that will set the stage for discussion: Madhav Marathe (UVA), Paul Turner (Yale), Bryan Grenfell (Princeton). More speakers will be confirmed soon. A number of short talks and breakout sessions are included in the program to establish convergence and R&D teams over the two days.
The symposium will incorporate both “general participants” and “core participants”. General participants can listen to talks and panels in real-time and can submit questions for the speakers and panel members. Core participants, who are invited to submit a white paper, will participate in break-out sessions and discussions. A limited number of invited core participants will also give talks.
Please register as a general participant or apply to be a core participant for free at http://prevent-symposium.org.
Organizing team: B. Aditya Prakash (Georgia Tech), Paul Torrens (NYU), Krista Wigginton (Michigan), John Yin (Wisconsin).
