This mini-symposium will bring together established and up-and-coming researchers to explore how mathematical and computational models can be applied to address public health challenges for a wide range of infectious diseases, including Wolbachia, Ebola, COVID-19, etc. The presentations will range from theoretical perspective, such as developing models to better understand the transmission dynamics and spatiotemporal patterns, to more applied aspects, such as fitting models to evaluate the impact of control strategies. Current mathematical and computational modeling challenges will also be discussed.
