The 8th Summer Institute in Statistics and Modeling in Infectious Diseases (SISMID 2016) will be held July 11-29, 2015 at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington USA.
The Institute consists of a series of two-and-a-half day workshops designed to introduce infectious disease researchers to modern methods of statistical analysis and mathematical modeling and to introduce statisticians and mathematical modelers to the statistical and dynamic problems posed by modern infectious disease data. Prerequisites are minimal, and the modular nature of the Institute enables participants to design a program best suited to their backgrounds and interests. Most participants will likely take two or three modules.
Individuals attending the Institute will receive certificates of course completion in recognition of their participation.
