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:

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

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.
