Post-symposium workshops and dates

Three post-symposium workshops (No. 21, No. 23, and No. 24 below) have been confirmed. Participants who are registered in cancelled workshops can transfer to another post- or pre-symposium workshop that is confirmed. Participants who paid registration to attend the ISVEE Symposium and decline to transfer to another workshop will be fully reimbursed the amount paid to register in the workshop (minus an administrative fee of 43 USD that applies for the symposium). Registration will remain open for confirmed workshops.

21 A Practical Workshop on Network Analysis and Modelling for Epidemiologists

Learning Outcomes: This workshop will be valuable for people who are interested in applying network analysis and mathematical modelling in the future, and to people who already have experience in this area and seek to expand their knowledge and skills. Days 1 and 2: (i) Provide participants with an overview of the analysis of network data; (ii) Understand the nature of network data and the concepts underlying network data analysis; (iii) Build and visualize a network; (iv) Analyse the structure of a network at different levels, from nodes to the network as a whole; (v) Apply epidemiological and network data to test hypotheses Day 3 will focus on the mathematical modelling of diseases spreading through networks. Participants will be able to: (vi) Develop mathematical models simulating the spread of diseases through networks and the implementation of surveillance programs and control interventions; and (vii) Understand the impact of network structure on disease dynamics and the effectiveness of surveillance programs and control interventions.

Instructors: Guillaume Fournié and Dirk Pfeiffer.

When: 8-10 November 2015 (three days).

Cost per participant: 700-750 USD (Students) and 800-850 USD (Delegates).

This workshop has been cancelled.

23 Using Economics for Animal Health Decision Making

Learning Outcomes: At the end of the workshop the participants will be able to: (i) Describe critical concepts of disease and health impact assessment including the use of this information for decision making; (ii) Design data collection and analysis to capture health and disease impacts; (iii) Discuss assessments of health and disease interventions for: production diseases and zoonotic and health and nutrition problems; and (iv) Explain the principles of systems dynamics and modeling for economic analysis.

Instructors: Jonathan Rushton, Barbara Haesler, Julio Pinto, Jaime Romero, Jarkko Niemi, Karl Rich, Erwin Wauters.

When: 8-10 November 2015 (three days).
