Joint ICTP-SAIFR/ICTP-Trieste School on Mathematical Models of Evolution 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 mathematical models on evolution, co-organized with the Abdus Salam ICTP in Trieste, will feature lectures by physicists and applied biologists who have made important contributions to this area of biological research. The school is intended for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the physical and biological sciences. This activity will be preceded by the ‘VIII 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.


Application deadline: November 4, 2018

VIII 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.

This activity will be followed by the ‘Joint ICTP-SAIFR/ICTP-Trieste School on Mathematical Models of Evolution ’. 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.

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.

Intensive School on Cellular Automata (ACRI 2918) at University of Geneva

School Program

Cellular automata (CA) can be viewed as a mathematical abstraction of the physical world in which all quantities are of discrete nature. Due to its simplicity, CA turn out to a be very interesting approach to model complex systems in which a macroscopic collective behavior emerges out of the interaction of many simple elements. This school will indroduce this approach in a pedagogical way through many examples illustrating the essence of CA modeling.

The program is the following:
Introduction: What are CA's?: computational model, discrete dynamical system, abstraction of physical and natural systems
Definition: Parity rule. Neighborhood, stochastic CA, non-uniform CA, asynchronous CA. Implementation: lookup table, on the fly computation. Number of possible universe
Historical notes: from von-Neumann to Langton self-reproduction CA
Modeling of physical system: create a fititious world where conservation laws and symmetries are preserved.
Examples: snowflakes, excitable media,traffic models, homostatis,...
Understanding complex systems through CAs: life, Langton ants, Wolfram complexity classes...
Lattice gases: CA fluids, diffusion models, exact computation and reversibility
Extension: lattice Boltzmann, multi-agent: in-silico modeling at a mesoscopic level.
Exercises: will be inserted during the presentation

Additional Information: For PhD students from the University of Milano-Bicocca the school is valid for one course credit.

The school will continue with the workshops to introduce the students to recent research results on various aspects of CA.

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
