Publications and Presentations on STEM
Upcoming poster presentations on STEM
Two poster presentations will share the ongoing collaboration between IBM Research Division, Almaden Research Center, San Jose, CA, and the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment, Department for Biological Safety, Germany, at ISVEE 13, Building Bridges, Crossing Borders. ISVEE is the annual meeting of the International Society for Veterinary Epidemiology and Economics. It will be held in Maastricht, at the borders of Belgium and The Netherlands. For information about the meeting, go to .
The two presentations are:
"The SpatioTemporal Epidemiological Modeler: an open source framework for modeling food-borne disease." Authors: Kaufman JH (presenter), Davis M, Douglas JV, Edlund S, Hu K, Filter M, Wigger J-F, Thoens C, Weiser AA, Kaesbohrer A, Appel B.
"A community resource for spatial, temporal and food chain epidemiological modelling to assess risks in bio-terroristic or agro-terroristic crisis situations." Authors: Falenski A (presenter), Thoens C, Filter M, Kaesbohrer A, Appel B, Kaufman JH, Edlund S, Davis M, Douglas JV, Hu K.
