The focus of this workshop is the rigorous analysis of processes which model the spread of infections in a social network, with the goal of developing predictive models as well as policies and algorithmic solutions for their control and mitigation. This also includes epidemic models used for modeling the spread of new ideas, technologies, information, and misinformation. The workshop will bring together researchers from computer science, mathematics, economics, epidemiology, and global health, to discuss challenges and give the broader community access to some of the mathematical and algorithmic problems in the field.
