Premiere of CompBioMed Pandemic Film at the Amsterdam EyeMuseumVan Derden
CompBioMed will be hosting a free screening at the Amsterdam EyeMuseum from 16:00CET on 2 December 2022. At the event, we will premiere our new film visualising how supercomputers can help combat the next pandemic.
The short film, created by the Barcelona Supercomputing Centre, will be followed by a panel discussion with 4 speakers, including the authors of the forthcoming book Virtual You. The screening and roundtable will be followed by a drinks reception. The premiere is free of charge and open to all, from scientists to members of the public (register here).
(Registration includes the screening/roundtable and the drinks reception)
About the film: The question of whether there will be future pandemics is a matter of when, not if. But will the world be ready? This video explores a new weapon in the fight against global disease: the supercomputer. From providing insights into the spread of the virus through the air, to the effectiveness of masks, or simulations revealing key insights for antiviral drug development, supercomputers can help us deal with pandemics. As has already been shown with COVID-19, supercomputer simulations offer a way to predict what will happen in the wake of vaccination, treatments or public health campaigns.
16:00-17:00 – Film screening and panel discussion
