Epidemix is an interactive multi-model application for teaching and visualising infectious disease transmission. Applicable to both human and animal populations, its goal is to make modelling less of a black box and more transparent. The freely accessible app allows users to explore infectious disease transmission models both for teaching and to understand the effect of different parameters, assumptions and interventions on disease spread. The presentation will provide an overview of the app and introduce newly developed Epidemix features, which include a model that displays the impact of delayed detection and notification, using a pre-populated model for African Swine Fever (ASF).

“There is a magic in graphs. The proﬁle of a curve reveals in a ﬂash a whole situation — the life history of an epidemic, a panic, or an era of prosperity. The curve informs the mind, awakens the imagination, convinces.” - Henry D. Hubbard
Data visualisation is everywhere these days, but it can be hard work going from a spreadsheet to the web. Let us show you how to get started…
We will present (an admittedly R Shiny-biased) overview of online data visualisation by examining case studies to show how we are connecting data with people. We will explore why "off-the-shelf" solutions often don't work for specialist data and dive into some design and user interface considerations for data visualisation. Along the way we will also bust some good old-fashioned IT myths.
