Mathematical Biology on the Mediterranean Conference - International Workshop at University of the Aegean, Karlovasi, Samos, Greece

The workshop will be dedicated to talks on various advanced aspects of mathematical biology, that may have been introduced or not in the Summer school during the previous week, September 1-7. All themes of mathematical biology, including mathematical ecology and evolutionary theory, are eligible for presentations. All aspects of mathematical modelling of biological, ecological and medical questions, model analysis, simulation and control when relevant, are welcome.

Sessions will be programmed every day from Monday 9 to Saturday 14 (only in the morning for Saturday 14) except Wednesday 10, that will be dedicated to an excursion in the island, either to the archeological sites or (for those who would have visited them during the previous week) or to hiking trails and beaches.

The number of participants to the workshop will be limited to 60 (see the Deadlines for registration and fees). PhD students up to a maximum number of 40, on a first-come first-served basis according to fund availability and on recommendation from their supervisors, are eligible to be totally waived of charges: no registration fees nor local expenses, i.e., accommodation and most meals, for the workshop (as for the school). Participation of PhD students coming from regional universities (i.e., of the neighbouring Mediterranean region, e.g., Greek, Turkish, etc.) is encouraged, but by no means exclusive.Support for travelling expenses may further be asked from supporting institutions such as EMS, SMB, ESMTB, or others.

Transients in Biological Systems at National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) is now accepting applications for its Investigative Workshop, "Transients in Biological Systems," to be held May 29-31, 2019, at NIMBioS.

Objectives: Transients, or non-asymptotic dynamics, cover a wide range of possibilities, from biology to ecology and beyond. A full understanding of transients and their implications for biology requires mathematical and statistical developments as well as attention to biological detail. Transient dynamics have also played a central role in both empirical observations and in models in neuroscience. Yet interaction between ecologists and neuroscientists on this topic has been limited. Although epidemiology could be considered part of population biology, there is also less cross-talk between epidemiology and other areas of population biology than desirable. Transients clearly play a role in disease dynamics. Areas such as immune response require attention to transients as well.

Goals for the workshop:



Co-Organizers: Alan Hastings, Environmental Science and Policy, Univ. of California, Davis; Carl Boettiger, Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, Univ. of California, Berkeley; Kim Cuddington, Biology, Univ. of Waterloo, Canada; Andrew Morozov, Mathematics, Univ. of Leicester, UK; and Sergei Petrovskii, Mathematics, Univ. of Leicester, UK

Participation in NIMBioS workshops is by application only. Individuals with a strong interest in the topic are encouraged to apply, and successful applicants will be notified within two weeks after the application deadline. If needed, financial support for travel, meals, and lodging is available for workshop attendees.

Application deadline: January 30, 2019

Mathematics of Gun Violence at National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis, University of Tennessee, Knoxville

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) is now accepting applications for its Investigative Workshop, "Mathematics of Gun Violence," to be held May 1-3, 2019, at NIMBioS.

Objectives: Gun violence is a central public concern in the United States, annually leading to the deaths of 31,000 individuals and the non-fatal injuries of 78,000 others. It has been called an epidemic and a public health crisis. For infectious disease epidemics and associated public health planning (including recent Zika and Ebola outbreaks), officials relied on mathematical models to evaluate immediate responses and develop preventative policies. The construction of policies to curb the spread of gun violence could benefit from the development of mathematical models linked with available data. This workshop will bring together researchers from diverse disciplinary backgrounds to (i) review the existing approaches on the mathematics and modeling of gun violence, (ii) identify and prioritize areas in the field that require further research, (iii) develop cross-disciplinary collaborations to gain new perspectives, and (iv) suggest research and data-collection that could assist evidence-based policy recommendations. A direct outcome from this workshop will be a comprehensive review of existing models on this topic with suggestions for further effort. It is expected that collaborations arising from the workshop will result in novel efforts to enhance the quantitative underpinnings of the science of gun violence.

The workshop will incorporate discussions and critiques of the existing approaches to gun violence modeling and how these relate to the objectives for which models could be developed. Comparisons of various modeling approaches (including dynamical systems, agent-based, spatial, and statistical) and the parameterization of these models will be considered. Through discussions of existing and future models, we will also assess the available data and suggest new data collection.. The workshop will consider the variety of scales at which models of this system can be developed and the associated implications at these different scales. The relationship to models for human behavior, including those from social psychology and game theory, will be evaluated.

Effective approaches to building a theory of gun violence, which will then inform a science of gun violence, will require perspectives from multiple disciplines. The workshop will consider a systems approach that bring together interacting factors and components operating on multiple scales of time and space. Attendees will incorporate ideas from various quantitative fields (including mathematics, computer science, statistics, and informatics), social science areas (including geography, psychology, and criminology), and biological disciplines (including behavior, medicine, and ecology). The necessary research will be informed by practitioners involved in policy and law enforcement and will account for ethical issues of social justice and privacy. An objective is to consider how models might inform potential interventions, communication formats, educational initiatives, and control methods.

The workshop will include presentations from participants, a poster session to indicate the diversity of methods currently being used in the field, and breakout groups on topics chosen with input from participants. Participants will be expected to contribute to a review outlining the current approaches identifying gaps in the literature, and presenting potential future directions.

Location: NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville
