Introduction

A 2-day Ebola Modelling workshop is taking place at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine on 17th and 18th of February, co-organised by the World Health Organization (WHO). The idea for this meeting is to
  1. synthesise the epidemiology and available data streams, and current modelling being done
  2. discuss current and future avenues for modelling, both in terms of interventions and forecasts.

The meeting complements efforts on modelling Ebola and the production of weekly situation reports within the centre for the mathematical modelling of infectious diseases of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
