  • KNAW corona webinar: Mathematics and COVID-19

    Social network modelling and the spread of infectious diseases

    Social networks can lead to the rapid spread of infectious diseases. Epidemiological modelling can be used to chart not only the spread of disease within these networks but also the impact of measures introduced to control that spread.

    That makes it possible to study the effect of testing and contact tracing and how a disease can spread within a social network if no action is taken. During this webinar, three experts discuss the mathematical methods that underpin this research and can also be applied beyond the current pandemic.


  • YEQT XIV: "Load balancing and scheduling for distributed service systems"

    The 14th edition of the YEQT workshop, which will take place in the spring of 2021, aims to bring together young researchers (PhD students, postdocs, and recently appointed lecturers or assistant professors) and renowned scientists to share ideas, discuss research, and get an overview of the current trends in queueing theory and operations research.
