This is an initiative to implement as many different epidemiological models as possible in a variety of computer languages.

Why? Reasons include:

  • Replication and reproducibility are important
  • Introductory textbooks give few applied examples
  • There are many tips and tricks involved in epidemiological modeling in practice
  • It lowers the barrier for new researchers to enter the field

More on the rationale can be found here.

The Epirecipes workshop: The Alan Turing Institute, October 1-3 2018

This is a three day meeting to bring together researchers to implement as many different epidemiological models as possible. The meeting will be held at The Alan Turing Institute, beginning Monday 1st October 2018 with registration at 09:30-10:00, and finish on Wednesday 3rd October 2018 at 17.00.
