Focusing maths of COVID-19 on South America

Focusing maths of COVID-19 on South America
JUNE 4th 2020 - 1:00 to 3:00 pm

Applied mathematicians throughout the world have responded swiftly to the COVID-19 pandemics, integrating interdisciplinary teams and proposing models that help understanding the dynamics of the disease and its effects on society.

The webinar will give a panorama of such contributions in South America, where several teams have developed models specifically tailored to the local needs and reality.
