SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMS AND ACTIVITIES
|December 8, 2013|
The summer school school will include lectures on mathematical
epidemiology, and one of the most important aspects will be projects
for groups of 46 students, mixing scientific backgrounds and
levels of experience, and focusing on real-world problems around
which students develop and analyze models. It will also incorporate
several lectures on public-health topics with focus on those relevant
to other events of MPE2013 such as global spread, Indigenous populations
health, vector-borne diseases and integration of surveillance, statistical
data analysis and dynamical modelling and simulations.
Accomodation at York UniversityStudents will be accommodated at York's student residences during their stay and more information will follow. Students can also choose to stay at the Executive Learning Centre, see http://elc.schulich.yorku.ca/SSB-Extra/elc.nsf/docs/Guests.
The School is designed for students coming from mixed backgrounds.
We anticipate graduate students in epidemiology and public health,
medical residents and graduate students in interdisciplinary sciences
programs, in addition to graduate students in computational, mathematical
and statistical sciences.

Fees: Faculty/Researcher: $600, Students $100.
1. coordinated sequences of lectures to cover the basic concepts and techniques in disease modelling;
2. public lectures for detailed case studies of specific diseases and public health issues. These lectures are indeed for the general public, specially for those not necessarily specialized in the field, so students of the summer school can learn how to communicate mathematical results effectively with the public;
3. pre-assigned student group projects, identified in advance with partner organizations;
4. student presentations.
