Epidemic Planet flies to the US
The Epidemic Planet visualization application, developed by the Epiwork WP4 within the context of the GLEaMviz project, has been hosted in the Exhibition hall of the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC10), that was held in New Orleans, Louisiana, from November 13th to 19th. The EP application was hosted at the booth of the Indiana University, partner of the GLEaMviz project.
Epidemic Planet displays the evolution of the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic and enables its users to interactively compare and learn about the effect of a number of intervention scenarios. The epidemic spreading on the global scale is simulated using GLEaM.
The application is in continuous evolution, and it has already been shown at the Science Gallery of the Trinity College in Dublin, at the Edinburgh International Science Festival, at the Science beyond Fiction event at the EU Parliament in Strasbourg, at the CosmoCaixa Science Museum in Barcelona, and more.
The venue of the SC10 Exhibition, in which the Epidemic Planet was hosted, wass the Ernest N. Moriale Convention Center (ENMCC).
