Symposium on Infectious Diseases Modeling

The Research & Development Centre for Mathematical Modeling in collaboration with the Faculty of Science is organizing a Symposium on Infectious Diseases Modeling.

Symposium on Infectious Diseases Modeling aims to bring together academics, researchers and young research scholars to exchange and share their knowledge and experiences on all aspects of Infectious Diseases Modeling. This also provides a multidisciplinary platform for academics / researchers / professionals to present recent model developments as well as challenges encountered and possible solutions in the area of Infectious Diseases Modeling.

This symposium solicits research papers describing significant and innovative research contributions in any area of Infectious Diseases Modeling. Submissions on a wide range of research topics related to Mathematical Models & Analysis, Data Driven Models, Computational Models, Simulations Models and Soft Computing Models will be encouraged.
