Swiss Meeting for Infectious Disease Dynamics 2011

The “Swiss Meeting for Infectious Disease Dynamics” (SMIDDY) is a one-day meeting focused on mathematical, computational and statistical modeling of infectious diseases. Topics include within-host and between-host dynamics of infectious diseases in both humans and animals.

The aim of the meeting is to bring together researchers from different fields within Switzerland, ranging from fundamental research to public health policy making. Several research groups will have the opportunity to present their work in a dedicated forum, learn about other projects and foster future collaborations.

The meeting will take place on 24th of August 2011 in Basel. Registration is now open until August 20 and the abstract submission deadline is June 30.

Conference of the ASIM (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Simulation) in Winterthur taking place from 7 to 9 September 2011

The symposium offers an outlook at and overview of methods and areas of application in modeling and simulation. It promotes the exchange of experience between experts, demonstrates new trends, and establishes contacts between institutions of higher learning and business.

The symposium’s breadth of content – from theoretical fundamentals of simulation technology, to methods and tools, to practical applications in research, industry and service – promotes interdisciplinary cooperation and facilitates the exchange of approaches to problem solutions. In addition to the lectures, we offer a poster session, tutorials from software manufacturers, an exhibition by industry and business partners, as well as richly varied social events.

Peter Addor, member of the Swiss Chapter has published a book about “Projektdynamik”

The book is written in German. It is not only directed to project managers and business leaders, but to all those who fight in companies and also at their homes, in clubs, or in volunteer work. Understanding of system processes and increasing of structural knowledge in projects is a prerequisite to protect against margin erosion and time overrun. The book helps the reader to identify imminent thinking traps and break out the logic of heuristic-based action. (More information at: http://www.anchor.ch/Projektdynamik)
