About

The 2nd ACM SIGSPATIAL International Workshop on Spatial Computing for Epidemiology (SpatialEpi’21) focuses on all aspects of modeling, simulating, mining, and understanding the spatial processes and patterns of the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. This cross-disciplinary workshop is a forum to bring together researchers in the SIGSPATIAL community as well as researchers in epidemiology. Also, this workshop is of interest to everyone who works with infectious disease data and models (not necessarily COVID19). In addition to paper presentations, this workshop will feature invited speakers keynotes from experts across the SIGSPATIAL community and epidemiology.

Location

Online. Beijing, China
