    We are pleased to announce the 17th Annual Multicell Virtual-Tissue Modeling Online Summer School and Hackathon -- 2022, which will take place between Sunday July 31st and Sunday August 8th, 2022. 

    For more information, please see our announcement at https://compucell3d.org/Workshop22

    To register, please visit: www.tinyurl.com/CC3D2022. More information on CompuCell3D is available at https://compucell3d.org/.

    AUDIENCE: Mathematical Biologists, Computational Biologists, Experimental Biologists, Medical Scientists and Biophysicists, from undergraduates to senior faculty, with a current or potential interest in mechanistic modeling of biological systems. The course covers multicellular modeling, which applies to developmental and tissue biology, tissue engineering, developmental diseases like cancer, in-host modeling of infection and immune response and tissue-level toxicology. No specific programming or mathematical experience is required.

    Summer school attendance guarantees admission to the Model-Building Hackathon.

    The Hackathon will group attendees by topic of interest. Experienced modelers will be embedded within each group. Everyone will leave with a functioning core model that they can further customize. Advanced modelers can apply to attend just the Hackathon.


    An Introductory Python and Principles of Modeling Tutorial will take place on July 31st, 2022. If you already know Python or have modeling experience, you may skip this Tutorial or take this material as a review

    Multicell Virtual-Tissue Modeling Summer School (August 1nd - August 5th, 2022) and Hackathon (August 6th - August 7th, 2022):

    Mechanistic modeling is an integral part of contemporary bioscience, used for hypothesis generation and testing, experiment design and interpretation and the design of therapeutic interventions. The CompuCell3D modeling environment allows researchers with modest programming experience to rapidly build and execute complex Virtual Tissue simulations of development, homeostasis, toxicity and disease in tissues, organs and organisms, covering sub-cellular, multi-cell and continuum tissue scales. Virtual-Tissue simulations developed using CompuCell3D run on Windows, Mac and Linux and online via the nanoHUB CompuCell3D deployment (https://nanohub.org/tools/cc3dbase4x). CompuCell3D is open source, allowing users to extend, improve, validate, modify and share the core software. By the end of the Summer School and Hackathon, participants will have implemented a basic simulation of their particular biological problem of interest. Post-course support and collaboration will be available to continue simulation development.


    The summer school will include five days of lectures and hands-on computer tutorials. In the modeling Hackathon teams of advanced and beginner modelers will develop research-quality models of their systems of interest. Each attendee will also present a mini talk on their problem of interest. We will provide after-hackathon support to assist users in the development of these models in their research.

    Because the number of places is limited, admission is by application only. To apply for admission, please visit the school website at https://compucell3d.org/Workshop22
    and to register, please visit: www.tinyurl.com/CC3D2022. 


    June 1st, 2022. Applications will be processed as received.

     The workshop is partially supported by grants from the US National Institutes of Health. Enrollment is free.

    We look forward to welcoming you online this August!

    After the postponements forced upon by the pandemic, we are glad to announce that the 7th edition of The Helsinki Summer School on Mathematical Ecology and Evolution, an EMS-ESMTB School in Applied Mathematics, will be held between 21 and 28 August 2022 in Turku, Finland. 

    The core program consists of five series of lectures: 

    Josef Hofbauer (University of Vienna): Dynamical systems in mathematical ecology Gergely Röst (University of Szeged): The mathematics of infectious diseases
    Pieter Trapman (Stockholm University): Stochastic models of epidemics
    Jarno Vanhatalo (University of Helsinki): Linking ecological models to data through Bayesian statistics
    Christian Hilbe (Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology): Dynamics of social behaviour 

    All young researchers working in mathematical ecology can apply from all countries, especially from Europe and the Mediterranean. The school is aimed at graduate students of mathematics, but we also welcome students of biology with sufficient background in mathematics, advanced undergraduates, and postdocs.  

    For more information and details of the application procedure, please visit the school's webpage  


    With best regards,

    The recent dramatic events associated to the spread of the COVID-19 disease in many parts of the industrialized world, and the subsequent necessity of applying efficient confinement strategies to control the pandemic without frustrating the social-economic environment, have drawn the attention to the pivotal role of mathematical modeling in epidemiology and related issues. The aim of the school is to provide a better understanding of how mathematicians qualitatively describe and measure infectious disease outbreaks, by exploring pressing questions such as how many people have been infected, how infections are identified and measured, how infectious is the virus, and what can be done to combat it. This subject area being intrinsically multidisciplinary, the courses are conceived to cover a broad spectrum of approaches and techniques, ranging from deterministic models of population dynamics to stochastic description or agent- based systems, together with controllability and observability issues, toward statistical data analysis and uncertainty quantification. The principal objective of the school is training a new generation of researchers in mathematical modeling and simulation for epidemiology in order to provide a valuable support in the decision-making process to public health managers and institution executives.
