Computing our way out of a pandemic: modeling in the face of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has produced massive amounts of information that require an accurate analysis to predict outcomes and design solutions rapidly. It also has required experts from many different backgrounds to rally around in the quest for rapid responses in the race to save lives.

Many of the most prominent of these researchers are from Michigan, and a significant number of them are computational scientists who addressed questions such as: What measures should be taken to minimize contagion? Is it safe to ride a bus? How are supply and demand chains being affected?

This virtual symposium will bring together researchers from the State of Michigan to share their past and future insights into the pandemic.

This is a free Zoom event, open to the general public. Please register to attend: https://umich.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_47ZZyf_ZTFqwef3kd8icsg
