    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.

    Dynamics of biological systems: from viruses to populations

    VIRTUAL, 23-25 September 2020.

    The conference ‘Dynamics of biological systems: from viruses to populations’ is aimed to gather together researchers working in the fields of quantitative biology and physics. The focus of the conference is to discuss the spatiotemporal properties of various biological systems. We want to highlight differences and similarities when biological systems are scaled up both in size and numbers. The conference contributions will be divided into five thematic sessions (viruses, bacteria, cells, populations, and mathematical models), covering a range of topics like COVID-19, microbial communities, the evolution of drug resistance, developmental patterning, cellular mechanics, population dynamics, nonlinear dynamical systems, and emergent properties of biological systems.

    The conference is a continuation of the series of Biological Complexity in Cracow meetings and is hosted by the Garage of Complexity, Jagiellonian University.

    Deadline for registration: September 15

    Deadline for abstract submission: September 15

    Venue: The conference will be virtual. All talks will be available through MS Teams. We plan to have virtual chat rooms to comment on the talks. The number of participants will be limited to 200 participants due to technical capabilities.

    Registration: The registration will be through indico.cern.ch. Registration is free. Participants who want to present during the conference are encouraged to submit a short abstract for a talk.

    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 quentin.griette@u-bordeaux.fr  so that we add you to the mailing list.
