Clinic on Dynamical Approaches to Infectious Disease Data

The South African Centre for Epidemiological Modelling and Analysis (SACEMA) in colaboration with the International Clinics on Infectious Disease Dyanmics Data (DAIDD) invites applications for the 7th annual Clinic on Dynamical Approaches to Infectious Disease Data (DAIDD), which will be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa on 16-22 December 2018. The deadline for receipt of applications is October 25, 2018.

The Clinic is open to public health professionals (including researchers, students, and clinicians) and population biologists studying infectious diseases. Participants should have limited (or no) prior modelling experience, and should want to learn about dynamic models as tools to inform data collection, analysis, and interpretation. The Clinic is particularly appropriate for those in the process of developing new research projects related to infectious disease epidemiology. 

The course fee is ZAR30,000 for participants based in LMICs and US$2,250 (or €2,000) for all other participants. The fee covers room and board for the duration of the Clinic, as well as course materials. A small number of full and partial scholarships are available. Participants are responsible for their own travel costs.
