Pawsey Friday: Improving strategies to tackle infectious disease spread, WA dengue spread model
November 24, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pmFREE
Pawsey Fridays are opportunities to get to know users and Pawsey experts.
The afternoon will give you the opportunity to network and get to know both staff and users in a relaxed and informal setting while finding out more about researchers’ experiences with Pawsey systems and their outcomes.
This Pawsey Friday our special guest is Prof George J Milne, from the School of Computer Science and Software Engineering, at the University of Western Australia. Prof Milne is leading a team of researchers in developing models of dengue transmission. During his presentation, Prof Milne will outline how they designed those models and how they have used them to quantify the effectiveness of interventions. He will also outline how they are redeveloping simulation code to better exploit a parallel architecture and its intended use in simulating spread of the Zika virus.
Please RSVP for catering purposes.
