About Us

 

Infectious disease epidemiology is an important, complex, global societal problem. Currently, emerging challenges --- climate change, political instability, urbanization, and others --- threaten to slow recent progress in this area. 

Epidemic science also motivates fundamental problems in computing, with broad impacts possible in social networks, cyber-security, web science, and public health policy.

We see a timely opportunity to simultaneously make fundamental advances in computing, data science, and artificial intelligence that will yield significant societal, health, and economic benefits.

Metrics of Success

Blue

Establish Computational
Epidemiology Community
in Computer Science

  • Develop new theoretical transdisciplinary frameworks (e.g. Socio-political epidemiology, ML-based exascale simulations, computational theory of spreading processes)
  • Publish high-impact research articles
Purple


Impact Public Policy

  • Develop and assess new, implementable strategies for controlling epidemic outbreaks
  • Support real-time decisions and analysis during factual epidemics
  • Develop and deploy Cyber-Environment for Real-Time Epidemic Science (CERTES) for epidemiological responders and policy makers
Green


Inform Thought Leadership

  • Organize annual meetings 
  • Organize DIMACS and SAMSI workshops
  • Develop new education and training programs for next-generation epidemiologists
