    IX ICTP-SAIFR Southern-Summer School on Mathematical Biology


    Start time: January 12, 2020

    Ends on: January 18, 2020

    Location: São Paulo, Brazil

    Venue: IFT-UNESP

    Description:

    This school is aimed at graduate students in Physics, Mathematics, Ecology and Epidemiology, having at least a basic knowledge of calculus and differential equations. Lectures cover the basics of population dynamics and are supplemented with modelling exercises addressing mainly problems in ecology, epidemiology and evolution. Undergraduate students with exceptional records are also encouraged to apply. Limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

    This activity will be followed by the ‘School on Community Ecology: from patterns to principles’. Candidates may apply either for one or both schools, and preference will be given to graduate students in South America. Advanced undergraduate students are also welcome to apply.

    There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

    Please note that acceptance cannot be taken for granted, as we expect a much higher number of applications than the maximum number of participants. We advise the candidates to carefully complete the application form, providing enough information for the selection committee to take a decision.

    The School will have short lectures and intensive group work on mathematical modelling.

    Lecturer:

    Roberto Kraenkel (IFT-UNESP, Brazil): Introduction to Population Biology

    1) single species dynamics

    2) interacting species I: competition

    3) interacting species II: predator-prey dynamics

    4) models in epidemiology

    5) spatial population dynamics

    Organizers:

    • Marcus Aguiar (UNICAMP, Brazil)
    • Marcel Clerc (Universidad de Chile)
    • Roberto Kraenkel (IFT-UNESP, Brazil)
    • Paulo Inácio Prado (USP/SP, Brazil)

    Registration deadline: November 10, 2019

    ICTP-SAIFR School on Community Ecology: from patterns to principles


    Start time: January 20, 2020

    Ends on: January 25, 2020

    Location: São Paulo, Brazil

    Venue: IFT-UNESP

    Description:

    From the bacteria in our guts, to the plants in the Amazon rainforest, ecological communities are made of many individuals and populations that coexist and interact in the same environment. Despite the complexity of the interactions between species and with the environment, often these communities display regularities in key macroscopic properties, such as their patterns of abundance, composition and the interaction network.

    A quantitative understanding of the processes and mechanisms that shape the composition and diversity of such communities requires advanced tools and methods borrowed from statistical physics and applied mathematics. The school will consist in advanced courses on topics in the dynamics and structure of ecological communities, which aims both at introducing students to up-to-date question of the field as well as introduce useful mathematical tools.A particular focus will be given to the emergence of macroecological patterns (“laws”) and to their connection to  fundamental mechanisms.

    This activity will be preceded by the ‘IX Southern-Summer School on Mathematical Biology‘. Candidates may apply either for one or both schools, and preference will be given to graduate students in South America. Advanced undergraduate students are also welcome to apply. There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

    Lecturers:

    • Stefano Allesina (U. Chicago, USA)
    • Priyanga Amarasekare (UCLA, USA)
    • Otto Cordero (MIT, USA)
    • William Bialek (Princeton U., USA)

    Organizers:

    • Marcus Aguiar (UNICAMP, Brazil)
    • Jacopo Grilli (ICTP-Trieste, Italy)
    • Roberto Kraenkel (IFT-UNESP, Brazil)
    • Ricardo Martinez-Garcia (ICTP-SAIFR, Brazil/Princeton University, USA)
    • Paulo Inácio Prado (IB-USP, Brazil) 


    Registration deadline: 
    November 10, 2019
