Stochastic Computation for the Analysis of Ecological and Epidemiological Data

20th November 2006 to 24th November 2006

Organisers: Steve Brooks (Cambridge)

Workshop Theme

Epidemiological and Ecological data pose similar methodological problems for statisticians. Both areas require the analysis of large yet sparse datasets often with both individual and environmental time-varying explanatory factors. In both cases effective management is the key goal as well as developing understanding as to the processes underpinning the observed dynamics.

The workshop aims to explore the cutting-edge of scientific developments in these fields and to discuss the statistical methodologies required to underpin future advances. In particular, we will highlight the computational and statistical challenges involved in modelling animal population and disease dynamics at the individual level and draw in expertise from a range of disciplines to help guide future (scientific and statistical) developments.
