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"
