PIMS-Mprime-CDM Summer School on Mathematical Modeling of Infectious Diseases

  • Start Date: 05/17/2012
  • End Date: 05/27/2012

University of Alberta


The scientific program of the summer school consists of a variety of formats including short courses, case studies, public lectures and group projects.

We invite you to participate in the 2012 PIMS-MPrime-CDM Summer School on Mathematical Modeling of Infectious Diseases at the University of Alberta. This is the continuation of summer school series organized Centre on Disease Modeling (CDM) team (formerly known as the NCE-MITACS team on Transmission Dynamics and Spatial Spread of Infectious Diseases: Modelling, Prediction and Control).


The purpose of the summer school is to provide effective training for collaborative research in infectious diseases based on mathematical modeling and qualitative analysis. Our goal is two-fold: to educate mathematically trained students how to address issues of great importance in disease control and prevention, and to educate public health students and researchers why and how mathematical modeling tools are useful for public health research. It is our hope that the summer school will prepare students who wish to work as modelers in a public health environment, and to help public health people and mathematical modelers to learn a language in which they can communicate with one another.
