The European Society for Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ESMTB) was founded in 1991 during the first European Conference on Mathematics Applied to Biology and Medicine in l'Alpes d'Huez, France. The mission of the ESMTB is to promote theoretical approaches and mathematical tools in biology and medicine in a European and wider context. This goal is pursued by the organization and support of summer schools and conferences, by the publication of the European Communications, and by promoting the dissemination of information of interest to members and followers of ESMTB on this website.

The biannual conference of ESMTB is the European Conference of Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ECMTB), taking place in different European cities.

ESMTB annually honours the best PhD thesis in the field of mathematical and theoretical biology with the Reinhart Heinrich Doctoral Thesis Awardand together with the SFBT awards the Ovide Arino Outreach Award every two years for seminal PhD contributions in mathematical and theoretical biology from southern countries. ESMTB is a nonprofit organisation. The ESMTB board organizes the activities of the society according to the ESMTB statutes.

Announcements to be posted on this webpage, and sent to subscribes to the ESMTB mailing list with the monthly newsletter, should be send to info@esmtb.org.

ESMTB organizes a monthly online colloquium, featuring excellent researchers in Europe in topics of interest to the members of the  society. The colloquium is open to everyone, with prior registration to our mailing list. Find the next talks below.
