Workshop theme:

This workshop will look at the different types of disease transmission models currently being used to guide government policy on the control of the global pandemic. This will include more traditional deterministic compartmental and metapopulation models as well as alternative model structures such as individual level network models that are being used to understand trace and trace strategies. A particular focus of this workshop will be on the inference methods used to link these models with data.
