    International Conference on Mathematical Neuroscience (Digital)

    We are delighted to announce the 6th International Conference on Mathematical Neuroscience (ICMNS 2020). Owing to the Coronavirus outbreak, the 6th edition will take place in a virtual format, via Zoom, on July 6–7, 2020, between 14:00–20:00pm (GMT+2). More details are given on the conference website, which will be continuously updated:
    ICMNS is an interdisciplinary conference series, bringing together theoretical neuroscientists and mathematicians. The conferences are aimed at scientists interested in using or developing mathematical techniques for neuroscience problems. This year a broad set of topics in mathematical neuroscience will be covered in eight sessions:
        (a) Cellular and subcellular dynamics
        (b) Dynamics of structured neural networks
        (c) Inferring models from data
        (d) Mean-field methods in neuroscience
        (e) Neural fields and spatio-temporal dynamics
        (f) Neural coding
        (g) Numerical methods
        (h) Mathematical theory of deep learning

    In addition, the conference features a virtual poster session and a special ICMNS Poster Prize. We encourage poster submissions by researchers from all areas of mathematical neuroscience and at all career stages. The submission deadline is the 21st of June at 23:59 (GMT+2). 
    Please keep yourself updated on the webpage. We hope to see you online at ICMNS2020!
    All the best,
    Daniele Avitabile (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), 
    Tatiana Engel (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory),

    Due to the coronavirus situation, together with ESMTB and SMB Boards, we have decided to postpone the conference. This decision is not easy and we will all miss the meeting this year, but are looking forward to seeing you all in Heidelberg next year. Further details on ECMTB2021 will be announced soon.

    Workshop “*Stochastic Models and Experiments in Ecology and Biology*”

    which will be held in *Venice, September 21-24, 2020*, at the European Center of Living Technology (ECLT). Further details can be found on the website 


    The aim of the workshop is to bring together scientists with different backgrounds (mathematics, biology, physics and computing) interested in microbial ecology and evolutionary biology (both theory and experiments).

    We will discuss important and recent research topics in these areas as well as methods and ideas. Topics will include stochastic population dynamics, quantitative and systemic biology, community ecology of microbes, statistical mechanics models in ecology, evolution in microbial communities, biodiversity coexistence and species interactions. The style of the workshop will purposely be informal to encourage discussions.

    Invited Speakers(*tbc):

    Otto X. Cordero,

    Eric Dykeman,

    Daniel Fisher,

    Nigel Goldenfeld*,

    Susan Holmes*,

    Terry Hwa,

    Eleni Katifori,

    David Nelson,

    Derek Tittensor,

    Amandine Veber.

     The *call of abstracts for contributed talks will close on* *May 24,

    2020* (EasyChair

    submission link: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=smeeb2020 ).

    Please* bring this announcement to the attention of anyone who may be interested, especially students and post-docs *who are not in this mailing list.

     There are 2 registration fee waivers for Ph.Ds / young Post-docs. Look in the website for all info.

    The* attendance fee of the workshop will be 200 Euro*, which includes coffee breaks and workshop material. However,* owing to the current Covid-19 *epidemic, the payment is not open at the moment. Once the workshop will eventually be confirmed, we will open the payment link and contact those who have pre-registered or submitted an abstract for the final registration.
