Analytic Solutions Committe (ASC)


The purpose of the Analytic Solutions Committe (ASC) - formerly the Technical Conventions Committee (TCC) - is to facilitate and expedite the development, evaluation, and implementation of technical methods for public health surveillance by:

  • Collecting, classifying, posting use cases (problem descriptions, requests for assistance) from public health professionals.
  • Discussing use cases as needed in open forums to derive well-defined technical problems of practical interest.
  • Obtaining or deriving benchmark datasets corresponding to use case problems.
  • Documenting problems in template form as with available benchmark datasets.
  • Disseminating completed use case templates to the community of solution developers.
  • Validating submitted solution methods based on results submitted by developer (is it understandable, does it do what it says, etc).
  • Disseminating solution methods to user community and assisting with documentation.
