We are happy to announce that the 6th edition of the tri-annual conference on « Stochastic Processes in Evolutionary Biology » will take place May 20-24, 2024 in the south of France close to Marseille, at CIRM (Luminy), a unique location on the doorstep of the beautiful "calanques". The conference will be a lively place to interact for researchers working at the interface between probability theory and evolution.
We are launching a call to researchers wishing to present their latest research on top of a dozen invited speakers (see list below).
Successful applications may or may not present actual biological data, but must contain interesting mathematical results. A slight preference will be given to contributions from young researchers and/or with a focus on one of the following topics:
Please send your proposal via the form
Deadline: December 1st, 2023.
In case your proposal is accepted (talk or poster), your accomodation at CIRM will be covered (but not your travel expenses).
Don't hesitate to contact us should you have any question. Please disseminate this announcement to interested colleagues - apologies for multiple postings.

In a rapidly changing world, understanding the intricate relationships between climate and ecosystems has become more critical than ever.
The “Climate-Inclusive Ecosystem Modeling: Understanding the Dynamics of Ecosystems in a Changing World (CIEM-24)” conference seeks to bring together researchers, scientists and stakeholders to explore and discuss cutting-edge approaches in modeling ecosystems, taking into account the profound influence of climate factors. The conference aims to address a wide range of topics, including theoretical ecology, ordinary and partial differential equations, autonomous and non-autonomous dynamical systems, multi-scale modelling, stochastic systems, among others, providing a comprehensive understanding of how climate change affects ecosystems and how ecosystem modeling can be enhanced to incorporate these effects.
BioInference 2024: save the date and call for abstracts
The BioInference 2024 conference (https://bioinference.github.io/2024/) is taking place at the University of Warwick on the 5th-7th June 2024, and it will combine a data-driven meeting on day 1 (registration fee: £30) with the main two-day conference on the 6th and 7th June 2024 (registration fee: £70).
Launched in 2022, BioInference aims to bring together researchers from across statistics and mathematical modelling who work with biological systems, and from all career stages, to foster discussions between the two communities and to prompt collaborations. The talks from the two previous BioInference conferences are available via our public YouTube channel (youtube.com/@bioinference5299).
The two-day conference will combine contributed talks and poster sessions. We now invite abstracts for oral/poster presentations on work either relating to statistical methods development (so long as those methods are applicable to biological systems) or on the application of statistical methods to solve biological problems. All presentations will be in-person. Abstracts can be submitted via a Google form (forms.gle/SBawnWD3k8iSS1Vt6) and the deadline is on the 31st January 2024.
It is our pleasure to confirm that this year's invited speakers are:
· Alex Browning, University of Oxford
· Sarah Filippi, Imperial College London
· Hong Ge, University of Cambridge
· Hamid Rahkooy, University of Oxford
· Heba Sailem, King’s College London
· Catalina Vallejos, University of Edinburgh
The conference organising committee is committed to ensuring fair participation of individuals across all career stages, genders, races and ethnicities, ages, geographic locations, and universities.
Data-driven meeting: problems and methodologies
This year, we are also running an optional event on the 5th June at Warwick before the main conference starts. This aims to bring together mathematicians, statisticians and those who possess or generate datasets and would like to analyse them/answer some open questions. These may include biologists, clinicians etc in academia and industry. The idea of this meeting is to think about potential solutions to these data-based problems, gathering interest for possible collaborations between individuals across disciplines, institutions and career stages. The day would consist of a range of presentations by the experimental/business partners in the morning, and focus/discussion groups in the afternoon, aiming to start formulating an action plan to tackle the open challenges. The cost of attending day one is £30 in addition to the registration fee for the main conference.
The BioInference Organisers
Enrico Bibbona (Politecnico di Torino); Ioana Bouros (Oxford); Julia Brettschneider (Warwick); Raiha Browning (Warwick); Fergus Cooper (Oxford); Marina Evangelou (Imperial College London); Aden Forrow (Maine); Constandina Koki (Warwick); Ben Lambert (Oxford); Chon Lok Lei (Macau); Massimiliano Tamborrino (Warwick); Tom Thorne (Surrey); Yongchao Huang (Aberdeen).
The International Conference on Mathematical Neuroscience (ICMNS) is an
inter-disciplinary conference series, bringing together theoretical/computational neuroscientists and mathematicians. The conferences are aimed at scientists interested in using or developing mathematical techniques for neuroscience problems.
The conference will take place at University College Dublin from the 12th to 14th of June 2024, and will include keynote, invited and contributed talks.
We welcome the submissions of contributed talks or posters, with deadline on the 16th of January 2024 at 23:59 (GMT). The submission involves uploading a 1-page abstract.
