Contagion '17: the call for abstract is open for the CCS2017 satellite on epidemic-related challenges

Contagion is a satellite meeting of the Conference on Complex Systems, the major annual international event gathering scientific communities engaged in Complex Systems research. Since 2012, the satellite brings together researchers from a broad range of disciplines (physics, mathematics, biology, epidemiology, human and veterinary medicine, computer science, information technologies, social sciences), focusing on the many challenges that the battle against infectious diseases is still facing in the XXI century.

The sixth edition of Contagion will be held within CCS2017 (Cancun, Mexico, September 17-22, 2017), with a particular attention to topics like vaccination strategies/immunization on networks, interacting strain dynamics, long-lived and persistent diseases, complex contagion, zoonotic spread, temporal transmission networks, human adaptation and multiple transmission routes/multiplex networks.

The workshop will be one day long and will host two invited talks (invited speakers are Marco Ajelli, Northeastern University, USA & Bruno Kessler Foundation, Italy, and Samuel Scarpino, University of Vermont, USA) and 12-15 contributed talks, selected by a international program committee. The call for abstracts is now open: abstracts need to be submitted via EasyChair. The deadline is May 20, 2017.
