Joint ICTP-SAIFR/ICTP-Trieste School on Mathematical Models of Evolution at IFT-UNESP, Sao Paulo, Brazil

Description:
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

Description:
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.

Organizers:



Lecturer:
Roberto Kraenkel(IFT-UNESP, Brazil): Introduction to Population Biology

Application deadline: November 4, 2018

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.
