Dear Colleagues,

We are glad to announce the 2018 edition of The Helsinki Summer School on Mathematical Ecology and Evolution, an EMS-ESMTB School in Applied Mathematics. The school will be held next year, between 19 and 26 August 2018 in Turku, Finland, and will be part of the EMS Year of Mathematical Biology.

The core program consists of five series of lectures:

Karl Sigmund (University of Vienna): Evolutionary game theory
Odo Diekmann (Utrecht University): Renewal equations in population biology Sebastian Schreiber (University of California, Davis): Coexistence in variable environments
Ellen Baake (University of Bielefeld): Probabilistic models and ancestral processes in population genetics
Hans Heesterbeek (Utrecht University): Ecology of infectious diseases

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, as well as advanced undergraduates and postdocs.

The application period will start in late 2017. For more information, see the school's webpage https://wiki.helsinki.fi/display/BioMath/The+Helsinki+Summer+School+on+Mathematical+Ecology+and+Evolution+2018

With best regards,

Eva Kisdi

ICTP-SAIFR School on Physics Applications in Biology at IFT-UNESP, Sao Paulo, Brazil

Although new experimental technology is partly responsible for the current revolution in biological research, theoretical models developed by physicists are also playing an important role in changing the way biological research is being performed. The number of theoretical physicists and applied mathematicians migrating into biology has dramatically increased throughout the world, but South America still lags behind.

The one-week school on Physics Application in Biology will feature lectures by physicists and applied mathematicians who have made important contributions to different areas of biological research. This activity will include minicourses, discussion sessions and group exercises on topics including neuroscience, evolutionary dynamics, time- series analysis applied to ecology and epidemiology, collective behavior, and optimization. The school is intended for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the physical and biological sciences.

This activity will be preceded by the 'VII Southern-Summer School on Mathematical Biology'. Candidates may apply either for one or both schools, and preference will be given to PhD students in South America. There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

In order to have an idea of the kind of activities that take place during the course, please visit the home-page of the first edition of this school at http://www.ictp-saifr.org/bioapp


Application deadline: November 10, 2017

VII ICTP-SAIFR Southern-Summer School on Mathematical Biology at IFT-UNESP, Sao Paulo, Brazil

This school is aimed at graduate students in Physics, Mathematics, Ecology and Epidemiology, having at least a basic knowledge of calculus and differential equations. Lectures cover the basics of population dynamics and are supplemented with modelling exercises addressing mainly problems in ecology, epidemiology and evolution. Undergraduate students with exceptional records are also encouraged to apply. Limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

Preference will be given to PhD students in South America. There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

Please note that acceptance cannot be taken for granted, as we expect a much higher number of applications than the maximum number of participants. We advise the candidates to carefully complete the application form, providing enough information for the selection committee to take a decision.

Winter School on Deterministic and Stochastic Models in Neuroscience at Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse in France

The main objective of this event is to organise a winter school around stochastic and deterministic models arising in neuroscience by providing a series of lectures given by internationally reknown speakers for a broad audience (graduate students, PhD students, Postdoctorates, researchers and professors) along with specific research talks. This winter school will showcase some recent and ongoing modeling problems in neuroscience with a strong emphasis on the stochastic and deterministic methods developped to treat them. There will be two lectures dedicated to stochastic methods and two for deterministic ones. The research talks will complement and enlarge these courses with for example topcis on neural field equations, numerical methods or kinetic models of neuronal networks. The webpage of the event can be found here:


Please note that there will be financial support for a selected number of students (graduate students, PhD students, Post-doctorates) covering local expenses: hotel, metro tickets and food. Students can apply here:


The registration for the winter school is free but mandatory. Lunches and a diner buffet will be covered by the conference.

Summer School in Computational Biology at University of Coimbra, Portugal

The Computational Biology at UC initiative is launching the 2017 Summer School in Computational Biology from Molecules to Tissues to be held between 4th and 14th September 2017.

Like the previous editions, this will be an introductory course targeted to participants from the M.Sc. to post-doctoral levels with either biological or exact sciences backgrounds who wish to acquire skills in Computational Biology. It will comprise courses on specialised Computational Biology topics ranging from the molecular level to integrated physiological systems, seminars on recent developments, and mini-research projects where the participants will have opportunity to apply the acquired skills to realistic research problems. Illustrative applications will emphasise ageing and degenerative diseases. This year we will include a new session on data science in Biology.

We are open for registration until July 3rd. In order to apply, please send a CV to: computational.biology@uc.pt. The fee for the course is 50 euros. We will provide lodging for 10/20 euros per night in double/single occupancy, subject to availability.
