2011 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Computational epidemiology is a form of spatiotemporal reasoning in which social link structures are employed, and spatially explicit models are specified and executed. We point to issues thus far addressed neither by engineers, nor scientists, in the light of a use case focusing on catastrophic scenarios that assume the emergence of a highly unlikely but lethal and contagious strain of influenza. Our conclusion is that important perspectives are missing when dealing with policy issues resulting from scenario execution and analyses in computational epidemiology.
