RECON gathering

These events are larger meetings aimed at fostering exchanges within the community, drawing a snapshot of state-of-the-art epidemic analysis tools, discussing recent outbreak response challenges as well as future directions taken by our field, and creating new projects.

  • RECON gathering 1 (2018, London): Challenges and Opportunities in Outbreak Response Analytics; this event includes a one-day symposium followed by a day of workshops with 2 parallel sessions: i) a discussion of analytic resources for field epidemiology training, and ii) a community-driven hackathon.


RECON Hackfests

RECON Hackfests continue the process initiated during the Hackout events: bringing people together to make new advances in the development of tools for outbreak response.

  • Hackfest 1 (2017, London): making outbreak analysis easier and prettier

  • Hackfest 2 (2017, London): mapping epidemics


The Hackouts series

RECON has been created in the aftermath of Hackouts 1, 2, and 3, a series of Hackathons for infectious disease outbreak analysis. To know more about these events, follow any of the links below:
