Dear Sirs,

My name is Dr. Valery Perminov. I live and work in Moscow, Russia. I and my 
group in Institute for Mathematical Modelling of Russian Academy of Sciences 
are studying the influenza epidemic spread in large cities. We have constructed 
an individual-based model for a simulation of the process, its consequences and 
possible interventions. Results obtained for a small-scale model has been 
presented at different conferences. If you are interested in you can find the 
corresponding paper on the site: http://www.iemss.org/iemss2006, in the 
Proceedings, session 8). Main purpose of this work was to show a robustness of 
the model and a possibility to reproduce well-known peculiarities of the flu 
epidemic. Now the full-scale model is ready for simulation, we have got 
interesting results that concern a restoring the model parameters from 
available statistical data and would be glad to present them at the 

I am a leader of the group as a specially invited researcher on a voluntary 
basis and the Institute may not send me to any business trip. So, I need in 
some travel grant to attend the conference. Is it possible to get it from the 
conference sponsors? If yes, would you be so kind to let me know about its 
probable sum?

In any case I send you the abstract of my presentation.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Yours sincerely,
Valeriy D. Perminov
