Upcoming workshops

    ** Deadline for application: October 31, 2021 **

    One particular component of the Hausdorff Research Institute for Mathematics (HIM) at Bonn, Germany, is the promotion of young researchers through Junior Trimester Programs (JTPs). The structure of a JTP is bottom-up: Young researchers constitute the core of the participants and organize the program. We seek applications from 30 scientists worldwide, preferably groups but also individuals, whose research interests fit the current theme. Individuals should be open to project work with other participants. The groups are encouraged to initiate various kinds of activities such as seminars or workshops. In addition, the participants can take the initiative to invite a senior mathematician with whom they can carry out research together. 

    The next JTP "Stochastic modelling in the life science: From evolution to medicine“  will take place between May 2 and August 26, 2022 at Bonn. It gives young mathematicians (postdocs, junior faculty) the opportunity to carry out collaborative research in stochastic modelling in the life science. 

    The stay in Bonn is fully financed by HIM, so that successful candidates can apply for leave from their home institutions. We recommend stays of 4 months, but visits as short stays of a few weeks are possible, too. 

    Deadline for application is October 31, 2021. You can find the online application form here: https://www.him.uni-bonn.de/stochastic-modelling-life-science/online-application/

    Building on the successes of last year's inaugural Workshop in Mathematical and Computational Biology (WMCB 2021), Prof. Kathleen Lois Foster (Department of Biology, Ball State University  http://www.comparativebiomechanics.com), Prof. Daisuke Kihara (Departments of Biology and Computer Science, Purdue University https://kiharalab.org), and I are very happy to announce the second edition of the Workshop in Mathematical and Computational Biology (WMCB 2022), which will take place online on June 9th-10th, 2022. Here is the website of the meeting: https://sites.google.com/view/wmcb2022

    Some details are below.

    Please, feel free to diffuse this information to anybody who might be interested!

    Thanks a lot for your time and consideration and we hope to see you at the event!

    All the best,

    The WMCB 2022 Organizing Committee


    Theme of the Workshop:

    The 2nd Workshop in Mathematical and Computational Biology aims to bring together the diverse communities of researchers working on topics of importance to biology by means of mathematical and computational methods.

    This second edition of the workshop will concentrate on the fields of Neuroscience, Bioinformatics, Ecology, and Epidemiology. The themes will continue to rotate in the next editions of the workshop to cover multiple areas, but always keeping the computational and mathematical flavors that have been central to the editions thus far.


    Registration is completely free. Please, use the link on the homepage to register not later than June 6th, 2022.

    Abstract Submission:

    If you would like to apply to present a Contributed Talk (20 min) or Poster + Short Talk (3 min), please submit your abstract not later than May 23rd, 2022. We have two tracks.

    TRACK 1: Contributed Talk (20 min)

    Abstracts for Contributed Talks should be a maximum of 500 words in length. Those not selected for a contributed talk will have the opportunity to be moved to Track 2.

    TRACK 2: Poster + Short Talk (3 min)

    Abstracts for Posters + Short Talks should be a maximum of 200 words in length. Those selected for a poster + short talk will need to submit their files not later than June 6th, 2022. See below.

    Applicants will be notified of acceptance not later than May 30th, 2022.

    Important Dates:

    Abstract Submission Deadline: May 23rd, 2022 @11:59pm EDT.

    Notification: May 30th, 2022.

    Poster+ Short Talk (3 min) Submission Deadline: June 6th, 2022 @11:59pm EDT.

    Registration Deadline: June 6th, 2022 @11:59pm EDT.

    Workshop: June 9th-10th, 2022.

    Keynote Speakers:

    Thomas E. Nichols, Nuffield Department of Population Health, University of Oxford

    Caroline Colijn, Department of Mathematics, Simon Fraser University

    Rahel Sollmann, Department of Ecological Dynamics (D6), Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research

    Possible others (TBA)

    Virtual Rooms (Slack Chat and Gather "Bio" Town):

    The virtual environments of the workshop will foster interactions among participants and will be the places to ask questions to speakers and connect with other attendees with common interests also outside the time of the talk. Walking around Gather "Bio" Town, you will find the Short Talks and Posters, and breakout tables where you can interact and share ideas. These virtual environments will be available closer to the conference.

    Humankind, as well as life on Earth more generally are presently facing unprecedented challenges. Habitat fragmentation and biological invasions, exacerbated by the global climate change, result in elevated species extinction rates coupled with an accelerated loss of biodiversity and new threats posed by alien exotic species invasions of previously virgin territories, especially in the Earth temperate belts, with a huge impact on the entire system for food production. Indeed, human population growth brings the need of a more efficient and sustainable agriculture. The spread of insects from the tropical areas carrying viruses causing outbreaks of new or rare diseases poses another threat. Efficient, sustainable solutions to these problems can only be found though a rigorous scientific approach. There is an urgent need for ground-breaking ideas and better understanding in life sciences, ecology and environmental science. Direct communication and exchange of ideas between experts in relevant research fields is one way to facilitate it. An interdisciplinary forum where knowledge from these different fields can be exchanged would be a first step on the way of addressing these problems hovering over humanity. Precision agriculture requires tools that go beyond the purely biological/ecological settings and mathematical modelling, being widely recognized as a powerful research approach to problems arising in natural sciences, would provide such an instrument. MPDEE 2022 aims to contribute to this debate by bringing together leading researchers in theoretical and mathematical ecology, digital agriculture, evolutionary ecology, mathematical epidemiology and related fields.
