Minutes from STEM
Community Call on March 19 =====
1. Welcome and
introductions. Welcome Simone Bianco
2. COVID-19 (sars
result in escaped from air travel intervention
Model: Explicitly model two interacting strains to test for ADE
seem to be three strains!)
S, A1, A2, I1,
I2, I12, I21, R1, R2
where it's possible
for R1=>I2 and R2=> I1 (ie still susceptible to other strains)
Model has been
implemented. Need data (eventually over seasons)
Stefan re: social distancing by cohort.
We could use
STEM's stratified population model to test curve flattening. 3. Ahmad storing
towards STEM on Cloud (STEM 5.0). no update today.
STEM today works in OCSGI (plug in) framework (Original
architecture by Dan Ford).
In principle individual plugins can exit in different
(TomCat) application servers (microservices)
Ahmad has created first services
one includes all of STEM (not broken up)
and a service called "The Bridge"
i) We need and official Branch
ii) We need to update the 'project plan'
iii) We will eventually need developer doc for people
that want to test and participate
4. New Bugs: Investigating
Reported problem generating log files for nCoV = not a bug.
Global simulation simply takes a lot of memory. 5. Items from
to set up a STEM knowledge base for sharing models between countries.
Mixing of wild
animals inside markets in China.
Need good science
to establish the risk.
Simone for paragraph on CDC model description to George Mason University.
JK sent query

scheduled for Thursday, April 9 at 9AM Pacific Time.
