Overview

Satellite meeting organised by Professor Sebastian Funk, Professor Nicholas Reich, Professor Steven Riley and Professor Rachel Lowe.

Forecasts have rarely been the focus when analysing and modelling infectious disease dynamics. Recently they have become a topic of increasing activity. We will discuss the latest developments in this area and identify cross-cutting areas and synergies with other fields. 

The schedule of talks and speaker biographies will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date.
