The webinar "Infectious Disease Outbreaks" will be hosted by the University of Bordeaux. The goal of this series of talks is to present multiple aspects of mathematical modelling to address important problems relevant to infectious disease outbreaks. Such problems can be addressed from many different angles from data, to mathematical models, to simulations and their combinations. COVID-19 pandemic will indeed be one of major topics in this series of lectures. We organize this series of lectures, between France (Europe) and Canada (North America), to bring together mathematicians from both continents.
The first talk will take place on Thursday October 15 2020:
9:00-9:45 AM (Eastern time) or 17:00-17:45 (in France)
Jacques Demongeot (University Grenoble Alpes), Modelling Covid-19 outspread dynamics involving geoclimatic and demographic factors
9:45-10:00 AM (Eastern time) or 17:45-18:30 (in France)
Glenn Webb, Vanderbilt University, USA, Predicting the Development of COVID-19 Epidemics from Reported Case Data
We plan to have one meeting every two weeks, which will consist in two 45-minutes talks given by one speaker from Europe and one speaker from North America. All the information concerning the talks will be given on the webpage https://www.math.u-bordeaux.fr/~pmagal100p/webinar2020.html except for the zoom meeting information, which will be communicated by e-mail.
We would be very pleased to welcome you in the online seminar. If you are willing to attend and wish to keep receiving information about this event, please contact Quentin Griette firstname.lastname@example.org so that we add you to the mailing list.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Victoria invites applications for the Gilbert and Betty Kennedy Chair in Mathematical Biology. The selected candidate will hold a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in the Faculty of Science.
This is an endowed position intended for an outstanding, high-impact researcher who will, together with our existing mathematical biology group, establish a world-leading centre for research in this field. The underlying academic appointment is expected to be at the Professor level, although exceptional candidates at the Associate Professor level may be considered.
We are particularly interested in applicants whose area of research is in mathematical ecology, evolutionary biology, regulatory networks, epidemiology and immunology; however, applications from candidates in all areas of Mathematical Biology are welcome. The anticipated start date is July 1, 2021.
For full details and the link to apply, go to https://www.mathjobs.org/jobs and the deadline date is January 4, 2021.
Competition-funded PhD opportunity (incl. international students) with the Precision Medicine Doctoral Training Programme at the University of Edinburgh.
This interdisciplinary project will involve the student in a close collaboration between three research groups: Schumacher (computational modelling), Chandra (bioinformatics), and Kirschner (stem cell assays)
Apply by Jan 7th.
International Workshop on Stochastic Processes and their Applications, IWSPA 2020
The organizing committee has the pleasure of inviting you to participate in the first edition of the International Workshop on Stochastic Processes and Their Applications (IWSPA 2020), which will take place virtually and online on November 24th and 26th, and December 1st and 3rd using video conferencing tools.
The workshop is organized by the Working Group on “Stochastic Processes and Their Applications” of the Spanish Society of Statistics and Operations Research (SEIO). We welcome contributions from all areas of stochastic processes, including, but not limited to birth and death processes, branching processes, diffusion processes, Markovian arrival processes, matrix-analytic methods, random walks in continuous time, renewal theory, space-time processes, and others, as well as their applications in population dynamics, genetics, epidemiology, cancer, cell kinetics, economics, finance, reliability, geophysics, environment, etc.
The program will consist of four 45-minute keynote talks and twenty 30-minute contributed talks.
The keynote speakers and their talks are as follows:
- Some results and applications of geometric counting processes, by Antonio Di Crescenzo, Università degli Studi di Salerno
- Exact approaches for the analysis of stochastic epidemic processes on networks, by Martín López García, University of Leeds
- Epidemics on networks with preventive rewiring, by Frank Ball, University of Nottingham
- Limit theorems, scaling of moments and intermittency for integrated finite variance supOU processes, by Nikolai Leonenko, Cardiff University

The International Conference "Dynamical Systems Applied to Biology and Natural Sciences – DSABNS" is a well established International Scientific event that has been organized since 2010, every year during the month of February.
The program includes:
Public Lectures providing a public forum for academic researchers from diverse disciplinary backgrounds;
Plenary Talks which are scheduled to open and to close the scientific program (morning and afternoon);
Invited talks are meant to provide context for a parallel session which is filled with Contributed Talks given by the conference participants;
Poster Sessions are also part of the conference which also counts with a Book of Abstracts with ISBN, published at the end of the event.
The conference programme covers research topics in scientific areas such as population dynamics, eco-epidemiology, epidemiology of infectious diseases, molecular and antigenic evolution and methodological topics in the natural sciences and mathematics.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the DSABNS 2021 will be VIRTUAL. The 12th Conference on Dynamical Systems Applied to Biology and Natural Sciences, DSABNS 2021, will be held from February 2-5, 2021.
