Summer bootcamp of infectious disease modeling, 2018
The short course is to take place from 1 August 2018 for 10 consecutive days. This call will remain open by the time 80 registrantions are received. First come, first served basis.
The following paper has just been published. Sleepless nights continued for several weeks, but that has been very much rewarding:-)

Summer Boot Camp of Infectious Disease Modelling, as supported by School of Statistical Thinking, Institute of Statistical Mathematics, was held from 1 to 10 August 2017. We have just successfully completed! We thank financial supports from JST RISTEX R&D Program and also various sources including Toyota Riken.
