IX ICTP-SAIFR Southern-Summer School on Mathematical Biology
Start time: January 12, 2020
Ends on: January 18, 2020
Location: São Paulo, Brazil
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.
