EMOTIONS 2014: first ECOFECT international colloquium on modeling infectious diseases


Share |

from June 26, 2014 to December 11, 2014 /

The scientific international colloquium EMOTIONS Ecological and Molecular mOdeling of infecTIONS will take place December the 10th and 11th in Lyon. DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION: DECEMBER 1ST, 12pm

The main objective of EMOTIONS 2014 is to explore the epidemiological, ecological, molecular and evolutionary dimensions of infections (human, wildlife) with a special focus on the mathematical models and computational methods that may be important instruments for such investigations.

Of particular interest will be understanding the role played by species interactions at the individual and populational levels as well as by the environment, on the onset and transmission of infections, and possibly the potential for controlling such role may offer.

The mechanisms and dynamics of such interactions and how these affect spread of infection will thus be discussed, as well as how pathogen evolution may be affected by within-host competition among different microbes.

Internationally renowned speakers are invited during this conference:
- Minus van Baalen (University Pierre et Marie Curie, France)
- Elhanan Borenstein (University of Washington, USA)
- Sam Brown (University of Edinburgh, UK)
- Thomas House (University of Warwick, UK)
- Jeroen Raes (Vlaams Instituut voor Biotechnologie, Belgium)
- Jonathan Read (University of Liverpool, UK)
- Vanessa Sperandio (University of Texas, USA)

Registrations are free but compulsory before December 1st, 12pm.
