Upcoming workshops

    • University of Manchester

    This is an event hosted by the EPSRC Network+ BIOREME ("Integrating data-driven BIOphysical models into REspiratory MEdicine" -- https://bioreme.net) a collaborative network of researchers, industry and patient representatives at the interface of mathematical modelling and respiratory medicine.
    This grant development sandpit will explore key research challenges in the study of environmental determinants of lung health. It will bring together experts from related disciplines; including epidemiology, toxicology, environmental engineering and public health; with researchers in the BIOREME community to discuss new and emerging research challenges. In this intensive workshop, participants will develop proposals for new multi-disciplinary research projects to tackle these challenges using techniques in mathematical/biophysical modelling and engineering.

    There will be £10k worth of pump-prime funding available for which groups formed during the sandpit will bid to support grant development activities following the sandpit.

    Registration closes: 8 March 2024

    Who is it for?
    We aim to bring together a diverse range of expertise to explore these challenges including researchers, clinicians, industry and charity representatives. We welcome experts from areas including but not limited to epidemiology, toxicology, environmental engineering and public health; alongside researchers in the BIOREME community to discuss new and emerging research challenges.

    Background and aims
    The lungs play an important role in providing a protective barrier against harmful particles, such as pollutants and pathogens, in the air. The impacts of long-term exposure to air pollution, particularly during childhood, are only now beginning to be estimated with any certainty. Furthermore, the intrinsic link between these exposures and wider societal factors, such as socio-economic deprivation or the environmental changes associated with the Anthropocene, is becoming increasingly clear.

    Our key goals for this sandpit are:
    To explore key research challenges in the study of environmental determinants of lung health.
    To formulate new research project proposals to address these challenges utilising expertise in mathematical modelling of the respiratory system.
    To spark new interdisciplinary collaborations that will propose solutions to these challenges.
    To fund follow-up activities (e.g. workshops or meetings) that will enable these collaborations to develop competitive grant proposals.

    Example research areas (but not limited to)
    Quantification of inhaled doses and their clearance.
    Mechanistic toxicology and in vitro studies.
    The role of temperature and humidity in environmental exposures.
    Epidemiological aspects of environmental health.
    Mechanistic linking of pollution to disease onset and progression.

    Event structure
    An outline programme can be dowloaded on the event page.
    Day 1 will be an afternoon session (beginning at 1pm) with a series of research talks covering key areas within the research theme. Speakers to be announced soon.
    Day 2 will be a series of structured brainstorming sessions to explore the thematic area. It is expected small working groups will form and develop outline project proposals to bid for all or part of the £10k of pump-prime funding available.

    • University of Warwick, UK

    We are pleased to announce the Workshop on Models and Inference in Population Genetics to be held 15-18 April 2024 at the University of Warwick, UK.

    This workshop, held in association with CRiSM, is the fourth of series of earlier events held in 2012, 2015, and 2019. For this edition there will be an additional theme of fragmentation and coalescence, in association with the EPSRC project "Random fragmentation-coalescence processes out of equilibrium".

    Stochastic coalescence and fragmentation models respectively describe how blocks of mass randomly join together and break apart over time according certain rules of random evolution. These models are important in fields including physical chemistry, ecology, and population genetics – where coalescence and fragmentation underlie widely studied genealogical processes. The aims of this workshop are to bring together researchers in probability and statistics working in all aspects of fragmentation, coalescence, genealogy, and genetic inference.

    We already have an exciting line-up of confirmed speakers, as well as two mini-courses aimed at PhD and early-career researchers:
    - Amandine Véber (Paris Descartes University) "Stochastic models of genealogies in spatially structured populations"
    - Emmanuel Schertzer (University of Vienna) – "New topics in coalescent theory"

    Further details, as well as instructions on how to register, can be found at the workshop webpage:

    • Pula (Sardinia)

    There will be a special workshop on chemical reaction networks and dynamical systems, taking place in Pula (Sardinia) from June 9-15, 2024. The workshop organizers are D. Cappelletti (Turin), S. Müller (Vienna), S. Walcher (Aachen) and C. Wiuf (Copenhagen).

    The workshop is a part of the SPT (Symmetry and Perturbation Theory) series that has been in existence since 1996. The overarching goal of these conferences is to foster interaction and collaboration between various groups of the scientific community. The focus of this workshop will be on reaction networks (deterministic and stochastic) and dynamical systems, bringing together specialists from both disciplines.

    For more information see the SPT web page http://www.sptspt.it/SPT2024/SPTCRN2024.html , and join the mailing list announced on this site for timely updates.

    • Udine, Italy

    I wanted to draw your attention to the workshop that Tamas Insperger and I organized for Udine, Italy for Oct 14-18, 2024. 

    It will have distinctly DDE and modeling perspective and likely will be near the last times that many of the speakers will give live teaching-style lectures (e.g.me, Stepan and Morasso). I suspect it may be expensive to travel to the meeting; however, it is possible to attend online. I think that the lectures given by Insperger and Stepan plus others would be of interest to mathematical biology students working on DDEs as well as those interested in falls in the elderly, etc.
