Mathematical and Computer Models in Epidemiology, Ecology and Agronomy

Version française

CIMPA-CAMEROON research school

Yaoundé, September 19-30, 2016

Report by Iván Area

The objective of our school is to introduce participants to the formulation of mathematical and computer models in epidemiology, immunology, ecology and agronomy and the use of tools of dynamical systems and numerical analysis in the analysis of real situations epidemics within a human or animal population of pests of plants and plant population dynamics.

Scientific Program

The basic introductory courses will be held on the first week and the advanced courses will be left for the second week.

  • Mathematical Modelling in Epidemiology and Immunology, Gauthier Sallet, Université de la Lorraine, France and Julien Arino, Université de Manitoba, Canada.
  • Introduction to Dynamical Systems and their Applications in Population Dynamics and Community, Pierre Auger and Nguyen-Huu Tri, IRD, ENS Lyon, France
  • Mathematical Modeling and Analysis of Vector-borne Diseases, A. M. Aziz Alaoui, Université du Havre, France
  • Mathematical Analysis of the Spatial Spread of Infectious Diseases, Arnaud Ducrot, Institut de Mathématiques de Bordeaux, France
  • Mathematical Tools and Methods for Agronomy and Ecology, Yves Dumont, AMAP-CIRAD, France and Jean Lubuma, Université de Prétoria, South Africa.
  • Interaction between Climate Change and Outbreak of Infectious Diseases, Jurgen Kurths, Potsdam Institute of climatology, Germany.
  • Mathematical Modelling in Animal and Plant Epidemiology, Suzanne Touzeau, EPI BIOCORE, INRIA, France.

Courses will be delivered in French or English.

Thirty participants from the region is expected, in addition to the ten lecturers for courses or conferences. In addition, participants will present their works.

A meeting is scheduled at the end of the second week between professionals from the health and agriculture, guest speakers and participants. This meeting will serve as a platform for professionals in these sectors (health and agriculture) to present the practical problems encountered in connection with the exercise of their profession. A discussion will follow to consider exchange possible collaboration between research teams working in the field of modeling in life science and structures operating in the sectors of health and agriculture
