Along with my co-chairs Morgane Rolland and Emma Hodcroft, I’m thrilled to invite you to join us July 30/31 2020 for the COVID-19 Dynamics & Evolution Conference! Inspired by the long-running HIV Dynamics & Evolution meeting, this (virtual) event will bring together researchers taking quantitative and computational approaches to studying the SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 pandemic.
On Thurs July 30th, we are hosting a one-day scientific meeting, featuring a series of talks by experts covering the epidemiology of COVID-19, modeling of viral transmission and control, and phylogenetic analyses of SARS-CoV-2. A program summary is included on our website: https://cpd.ucsd.edu/covid19
On Friday July 31st, we are hosting a two-hour public forum bringing together scientists and journalists to spotlight our current understanding of COVID-19 and discuss knowledge gaps, public health challenges, and science communication.
Registration for either event is available online.
In addition, we are already accepting abstracts for our second meeting on Oct 19-20, 2020!
Please share the conference information widely with your networks – the great thing about being virtual is that we have no attendance limits!
We very much hope to welcome you (remotely!) to “COVID-19 Dynamics & Evolution”,
