Overview
A two-day conference on mathematical modelling in the biological sciences, covering infectious disease modelling, and mathematical ecology and evolution. This workshop will be primarily targeted at students and postdocs with an interest in the biological sciences. Plenary speakers include leading researchers in the field of biomathematics. Students and postdocs will be invited to give contributed talks.

Quantitative approaches to pressing biological problems of increasing complexity have proven very successful in enhancing our understanding of living systems and in predicting their future and fate. As such, mathematical modelling, simulation and analysis are indispensable tools for research and management from the subcellular to the ecosystem level. Vice versa, applications in biology continue to generate challenging mathematical problems in areas such as infinite-dimensional dynamical systems, multiple time-scales, model selection or model-data interface.

Topic

Will we cover ordinary, partial and impulsive differential equation modelling for biological problems, evolutionary game theory, theoretical and computational neuroscience, bioinformatics, population dynamics, game theory, theoretical ecology and models of climate change.
