Upcoming workshops

    • Universitat de Girona, Girona, Catalonia (Spain)

    This in-person workshop aims to bring together researchers in the field of epidemics with different backgrounds (mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, engineers, and biologists) to present current problems as well as potential avenues of future research in epidemiology. Possible topics covered in the workshop are, among others: capturing human behaviour in epidemic modelling, outbreak analysis, epidemics on metapopulation, non-Markovian epidemic models, challenging modelling problems, etc.

    This event will be an exploratory workshop with discussions after each talk and talks that move away from closed presentations about already published research. We think that this format will enrich the attendees and the other participants. There will be room for poster presentations.

    If interested, please submit an abstract of 2-3 pages through the website

    It is our honour to announce the second edition of our hot-topic workshop series ‘Perturbations in Epilepsy’ to be held on June 26-27, 2023, at the University of Birmingham, UK. The theme of this year’s event is 'Quantifying the impact of seizure triggers'.

    The workshop is organised by the Centre for Systems Modelling and Quantitative Biomedicine (SMQB) and is planned as an in-person event. We are bringing together key stakeholders including patients with lived experience, clinicians and academics working at the forefront of epilepsy research, and partners from the wearables and neurotechnology industries to enable knowledge exchange and facilitate new collaborations on community-based epilepsy management.

    We have an exciting lineup of keynote speakers giving talks across three thematic sessions:
    - Clinical perspectives: Neurologists and neurophysiologists sharing their perspectives about seizures and their triggers.
    - Industry perspectives: Representatives from the industry presenting solutions/devices that could help monitor seizure triggers.
    - Modelling perspectives: Academics sharing their perspectives on how this data could be included in seizure prediction and prevention.

    We are also hosting a poster session on the first day, giving early career researchers an opportunity to showcase their work and gather feedback. On the second day, we will conclude with an ECR Symposium to discuss best practices and future requirements to support early career researchers to thrive in the epilepsy research community.

    For further details including the programme and how to register and submit an abstract, please visit the event website at www.birmingham.ac.uk/PerturbationsInEpilepsy
    We are offering a reduced rate for student registration to encourage their participation.

    For queries, please contact the organisers at smqb@contacts.bham.ac.uk.

    We look forward to hosting you at Birmingham!

    On behalf of the Mathematical Institute Oxford and of the conference organisers, we are pleased to inform you about the following scientific event: "Topics on Neuroscience, Collective Migration and Parameter Estimation" which will take place in Oxford from July 3 to 7, 2023.

    The talks will cover a broad range of topics in mathematical biology, with special focus on applications in populations dynamics, neuroscience and inverse problems. For a detailed list of the speakers and registration information, please follow


    We kindly encourage you to participate and share this invitation with your colleagues and any young researchers who may be interested (master students, Ph.D. students, post-docs...). If you are an early career researcher and want to apply for financial help, please include it in the registration form.-- Any questions about the scientific content of the workshop should be directed to the organisers.-- Queries about the logistics on-site in Oxford should be directed to Helen Stringer at Helen.Stringer@maths.ox.ac.uk.

    We are looking forward to welcoming you in Oxford this summer.

    Best regards,

    • Virtual

    We are pleased to announce the 18th Annual Multicell Virtual-Tissue Modeling Online Summer School and Hackathon -- 2023, which will take place between Monday July 31st and Sunday August 13th, 2023.

    We would very much appreciate your help in letting your colleagues and students know about this opportunity. This year’s workshop will take place over the course of two weeks. The first week will focus on the basics of building virtual tissue models modeling using CompuCell3D. The second week will focus on advanced modeling topics, as well as advanced features and capabilities of the CompuCell3D software. A two-day model-building Hackathon in which attendees work in teams to build a functioning model of their problem of interest will be hosted at the end of the advanced course. Attendees are welcome to attend only the first week, only the second week, or both weeks of the course. Attendance in the first week is not required to attend the advanced portion of the course. Attendance of at least one week of the workshop is required for participation in the Hackathon.

    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. Workshop instructors will be available to assist Hackathon participants throughout the two-day session. Everyone will leave with a functioning core model that they can further customize.

    For more information, please see our announcements at https://compucell3d.org/Workshop23

    • Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria

    The Workshop on Mathematical Perspectives on Immunobiology brings together researchers who do research on one of the most complex systems of the human organism: the immune system. The focus will be on mathematical modeling and computational analysis applied to immunology, host-pathogen interactions, onset and progress in human diseases. Special attention will be paid to how applications of mathematics relate to open problems and questions in the context of infectious diseases, cancer and chronic inflammatory diseases.

    Deadline for abstract submission: 23 June 2023

    For more information and registration, please visit the workshop's website at http://www.math.bas.bg/nummeth/workshop2023/
