Dear All,

You  are most cordially invited to a Joint ICTP-SISSA Webinar Colloquium 
by Dr. Alessandro Vespignani on "Computational Epidemiology at the time 
of COVID-19" on Wednesday 6 May 2020 at 15:00 hrs.

*Pre-registration* is required at the following url: **

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing 
information about joining the webinar.

*Biosketch: *Alex Vespignani is the Director of the Network Science 
Institute and Sternberg Family Distinguished University Professor with 
interdisciplinary appointments in the College of Computer and 
Information Science, College of Science and the Bouvé College of Health 
Sciences, Northeastern University, USA. His research interests include 
complex systems and networks, and the data-driven computational modeling 
of epidemics.

*Abstract: *The data science revolution is finally enabling the 
development of large-scale data-driven models that provide real- or 
near-real-time forecasts and risk analysis for infectious disease 
threats. These models also provide rationales and quantitative analysis 
to support policy making decisions and intervention plans. At the same 
time, the non-incremental advance of the field presents a broad range 
challenges: algorithmic (multiscale constitutive equations, scalability, 
parallelization), real time integration of novel digital data stream 
(social networks, participatory platform, human mobility etc.). I will 
review and discuss recent results and challenges in the area, and focus 
on ongoing work aimed at responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.
