Symposium on Complexity in Health & Wellness Behavior 
05 Sep 2018 - 07 Sep 2018 • Burlington, United States
Abstract:
During this intensive three-day professional education short course, we will explore boundary-breaking science that is being used to tackle issues related to human behavioral wellness. We will be looking at behavior in health systems, the current methods and tools being used in health analytics and data collection, methods used in behavioral health prediction and intervention, we will also address some of the shortfalls we face when behavior is ignored in health models and interventions. 

The Vermont Complex Systems Center is a highly collaborative, open, and playful space that embraces intellectual curiosity, kindness, and rigor. We are a post-disciplinary team of researchers working at the University of Vermont on real-world, data-rich, and meaningful complex systems problems of all kinds. Our educational programs are meant to be an idea collider. They bring together faculty and participants from many fields and spark new collaboration. They facilitate creativity. Our aim is not just to transfer complexity tools but to provide a life experience for our students and create a community of complexity researchers and practitioners who are open, collaborative, and hungry for rigorous solutions to complex problems.

Keystone Symposia: Framing the Response to Emerging Virus Infections
14 Oct 2018 - 18 Oct 2018 • Hong Kong, China
Abstract:
Emerging and re-emerging viruses have the potential to cause high morbidity and mortality and range from localized outbreaks to epidemics. Due to their emerging nature, most aspects of the biology and infectious potential of these viruses are poorly understood. Our continuing struggle to respond to a procession of pandemics including SARS, avian influenza, MERS, Ebola and more recently Zika, highlights key gaps in our knowledge and should serve to motivate our re-thinking on how we can better prepare and deal with future unknown viral threats. This meeting will focus on important areas such as surveillance, diagnostics and countermeasures and other important advances in new technologies and how they are being applied to research. Furthermore, we will discuss how to facilitate the translation of research, data and candidate treatments through the development pipeline in a timely and cost-effective manner. The key themes to be covered include the need to understand why zoonotic diseases matter, their association with agriculture, the importance of surveillance and early detection, and the difficulties of dealing with diseases that involve both medical and veterinary communities. The conference will bring together experts in virology, immunology, vaccinology, epidemiology with those that seek to transfer knowledge between these groups, veterinarians and industry and government. Further, this meeting would bring together individuals involved in the control of these diseases in government and non-government organizations, as well as people involved in study of zoonosis and countermeasures. The creation of global networks and sharing of information will ensure that we are better prepared for future outbreaks.

Keystone Symposia: 21st Century Drug Discovery and Development for Global Health
17 Oct 2018 - 20 Oct 2018 • Berlin, Germany
Abstract:
Infectious diseases cause substantial morbidity and mortality in the developing world. The medicines available today are often inconvenient to use or result in side effects, and many are being lost to emerging drug resistance. There remains an urgent need to discover and develop the next generation of transformative medicines that are more efficacious, more highly targeted, and have a better safety profile. This will only be achieved through the application of state-of-the-art drug discovery tools, technologies and approaches. This meeting will focus on diseases caused by parasitic organisms and bacteria, including malaria, neglected tropical diseases, diarrheal disease and tuberculosis. The goals of this meeting are to improve understanding of the disease burden and challenges faced in developing new therapies, to highlight examples of progress towards new drug candidates, and to foster communication and collaboration among communities of researchers working in global health across the spectrum from research to the clinic. The meeting will be of interest to basic scientists as well as drug discovery and development experts wanting to gain a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities in global health.
