Registration Open: Computational Modeling Workshops – May 13 through 17, 2019

We are pleased to announce that registration is open for the 2019 CEID-IDEAS Computational Modeling Workshops, taking place Monday May 13th to Friday May 17th.  Comprised of two back-to-back workshops, this series introduces students and healthcare professionals to the field of quantitative modeling as it relates to the dynamics of infectious diseases.  Through a combination of lecture and laboratory practicums, participants will synthesize the advanced techniques of statistics, computer science, and mathematics to help them frame biological questions in mathematical parlance, embark on analyses of these models, and work with a diverse array of data using advanced computational methods. Upon completion, participants should be able to:

  • Write code in R to perform research analysis
  • Create reproducible workflows
  • Extend understanding through independent study using web-based resources
  • Express hypotheses as mathematical models
  • Manipulate and analyze diverse data types
