Epidemic Simulation Models and Covid-19 Applications: Insights from Stanford-CIDE and NIPH
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (NIPH) is hosting a two-hour seminar focused on simulation models for epidemics, with a special emphasis on Covid-19 applications.
We are excited to welcome two distinguished experts from Stanford University, Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert and Fernando Alarid-Escudero, who will present the Stanford-CIDE Coronavirus Simulation Model and discuss its development and potential applications.
In addition, our own Birgitte De Blasio, an expert on infectious disease modeling from the NIPH, will present the Covid-19 modeling used by the institute to advice on policy in Norway, including data collection and analysis, scenario planning, and forecasting.
This seminar is open to anyone interested in modeling epidemics and learning about the potential applications of these models for analyzing the spread and consequences of epidemics.
Coffee and a small snack will be served.

Please register by May 22nd. Due to limited capacity, places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from three experts on epidemic modeling!
2:00 pm – 2:05 pm: Introduction, Henning Øien (NIPH)
2:05 pm - 3:05 pm: Jeremy Goldhaber-Fiebert and Fernando Alarid-Escudero present the Stanford-CIDE Coronavirus Simulation Model (SC-COSMO), a comprehensive model for simulating the spread of Covid-19. They will provide an overview of the model and discuss its applications and potential uses.
3:05 pm - 3:15 pm: Coffee and pastries.
3:15 pm - 3:45 pm: Birgitte De Blasio presents the Covid-19 modeling used by the NIPH in Norway, which includes data collection and analysis, scenario planning, and forecasting.
3:45 pm - 4:00 pm: General discussion, questions, and answers.
