Agent-based epidemiological models such as the geospatially referenced demographic ABM (GERDA) can simulate and forecast infection spreading in much detail and, if parametrized correctly, with high accuracy. They incur, however, a huge computational effort and a large set of uncertain parameters. We develop multilevel representations of ABMs using network-based coarsening and model identification techniques in order to improve the understanding of pattern formation and to accelerate parameter identification and policy optimization.
