THEME

The COVID-19 pandemic has become the worst pandemic in at least a century. Its impact on everyday life, whether in terms of health or socioeconomic effects, has been devastating, and given its persistence, perhaps many of its consequences remain to be seen. At the same time, the pandemic has induced unprecedented international and multidisciplinary scientific efforts aimed at understanding all aspects of SARS-CoV-2 transmission at different scales and at finding solutions to end the pandemic.

The Institute for Biocomputation and Physics of Complex Systems (BIFI), as a center that performs research in biological and complex systems, is particularly concerned with and involved in, COVID-19 research. It seems then timely for us to host the International Conference of 2022 around the COVID-19 theme. The Conference aims at providing a forum to discuss the latest advances and insights in the study of this pandemic. All topics that fit within the science of COVID-19 from a complexity, biological or interdisciplinary point of view are welcome.

MAIN TRACKS:

  • Transmission mechanisms
  • Covid-19 socioeconomic impact
  • Mobility patterns and pandemic
  • Covid-19 modeling
  • Drug development
  • Covid-19 and financial markets
  • Cellular and molecular biology
