CoVid-19: challenges and responses in simulation, modeling and beyond

Our community is part of the broad, interdisciplinary effort to understand, mitigate and eventually terminate this crisis. In this series of webinars, we offer insights on current initiatives and provide an opportunity to learn and discuss general aspects of the problem and more specific projects. Four e-meetings took place on April 21st and 28th, May 5th and May 12th.
