“An Epidemiology of Information” focuses on how new methods of analyzing large-scale datasets can inform research and policy approaches to epidemic disease. Panels consider what new methods suggest for contemporary infodemiology and epidemic intelligence, implications of data mining as a disease surveillance mechanism, and how new forms of reporting and public health surveillance affect public health policy. Panels also explore how these new methods can inform research on the 1918 influenza pandemic and help to answer lingering questions about the spread of the disease and the effectiveness of public health responses. Free and open to the public with registration.
