Summer appears to be just a warm memory but last week Epidemics 6 conference brought us in the ever-sunny Sitges, Spain. What an amazing experience! We really thank the organizers for this huge event.
- Vittoria Colizza opened one of the first parallel sessions on Wednesday with a talk about the impact of regular school closure on seasonal influenza epidemics, in collaboration with Niel Hen's group in Belgium.
- Chiara Poletto presented her work about influenza on Friday. In her talk she explained how to integrate dynamical modelling and phylogeographic inference to uncover the drivers of global influenza circulation.
- A wealth of posters, 7 in total, has been presented by our PhD students (sometimes requiring bilocation skills) Julien Riou, Caroline Guerrisi and Francesco Pinotti and our collaborators Frederik Schirdewahn, from TU Berlin and Bryan Iotti, from Department Of Veterinary Sciences, University of Turin.
We'll wait eagerly for the next edition and hope to swarm it again as we did this year!
