MS14: Modelling and Optimization in Epidemiology

The World Health Organization (WHO) has emphasized in various occasions that infectious diseases are of a major international health concern. Especially, vector-borne diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, ZIKA and yellow fever have caused more than 1 million deaths every year. Due to the mostly unknown vector population dynamics, these diseases call for an effective modelling and analysis supported by meticulous scientific arguments, large data sets and computer simulations to obtain an understanding of the epidemics pattern. A series of deterministic and stochastic models have been developed to study the evolution of epidemics of certain diseases.

This minisymposium aims to be a forum for scientists who have been working with infectious disease models, corresponding optimal control problems and analysis of the underlying dynamical systems. The meeting will surely be used to trigger discussions on novel ideas, combine different aspects from different schools, hence initiate a progress in the model development and actions leading to fostering joint work.
