ESMTB Board elections

The European Society for Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ESMTB) supports and promotes excellence activities on theoretical approaches and mathematical tools in biology and medicine in a European and wider context. This goal is pursued by encouraging community networking and scientific collaboration, as well as the organization of summer schools and conferences, in particular of the bi-annual European Conference in Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ECMTB). Applications for travel grants and prizes such as the Reinhart Heinrich Doctoral Thesis Award and the Ovide Arino Outreach Award are granted every year and published on the ESMTB Communications, available for download on our website

The activities of the Society are mainly conducted by the elected Society Board: Board members run for six years; half of the board is replaced every three years to ensure an overlap of new and experienced board members. The Board conducts its actions through one-day meetings (held approximately twice a year): a local workshop is usually organized concomitantly with the Board meetings. Board meetings are also held during the General Assembly (G.A.) held on the course of the European Conference in Mathematical and Theoretical Biology. A substantial part of the work and decisions are done, of course, by e-mail.

The election took place place between 1 and 31 October, 2020; In total 113 active members expressed a preference for up to 5 candidates via their personal area within the ESMTB website. 

The results are:

Tom Britton: 63
Benoît Perthame: 63
José A. Carillo: 61
Elisenda Feliu: 61
Angélique Stéphanou: 59
Tommaso Lorenzi: 55
Chaitanya Gokhale: 39
Haralampos Hatzikirou: 29
Nikolaos Sfakianakis: 29
Constantinos Siettos: 24
