Welcome to our tutorial about modeling diseases and using the GLEAM simulation environment to analyze the spread of influenza-like diseases around the globe.

After giving you a short overview over the background of disease simulation and the GLEAM as well as the CIMPLEX research project we will first have a look at developing a disease model describing an influenza-like disease.

Having developed the model and becoming familiar with it we will jump into the GLEAMviz simulator, running our own simulations based around self defined disease models and analyzing the results.

In the last chapter of this tutorial there will be a short perspective about real world applications of such simulations and additional simulation exercises.
