Presented under the auspices of the Special Focus on Computational and Mathematical Epidemiology.

Discussion Groups

There will be four groups of approximately 8 people each. They will convene for two hours on the first afternoon and address the question: Can we include social responses in bioterrorism/epidemic models, in ways helpful to decision-making, and if so, how? We plan to get the groups together for another hour on the second afternoon and then have the group moderator summarize the comments/recommendations of their discussion group in a plenary session of all attendees.
