The Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists Epidemiology Chapter is pleased to announce that they will be running a 3-day workshop on Foundations in Infectious Disease Modelling from 2 to 4 July 2018 at the Gold Coast, Australia, as a prelude to the ANZCVS Science Week conference.
The workshop will be taught by Professor Cord Heuer and Dr Carolyn Gates from Massey University EpiCentre, and Dr Caitlin Pfeiffer of the University of Melbourne's Veterinary School. These three veterinary epidemiologists bring a wealth of experience in building simulation models and network analysis. Whether you want to learn to build your own infectious disease models or just want to gain confidence in interpreting and presenting model outputs, this workshop has something for you.

WHA and AusVet Animal Health Services have previously run a 3-day wildlife focused Quantum GIS mapping workshop and 2-day Wildlife Epidemiology workshop. These workshops were both a great success, not only providing participants with new skills but also an opportunity to exchange ideas with others working with wildlife in a variety of ways.
