Evolutionary Models of Structured Populations: Integrating Methods at Max Planck Institut, Ploen, G.

Evolutionary Models of Structured Populations: Integrating Methods, Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology, Ploen, Germany, Sept 5-7th 2018.
Application deadline: April 30th 2018.

We are happy to announce the workshop Evolutionary Models of Structured Populations: Integrating Methods taking place in Ploen on September 5 - 7th, 2018.

Objective:
We aim at bringing together researchers working on different structures that influence the evolution of populations. Structures are here broadly conceived, they may be spatial structures (e.g. individuals living in a subdivided territory), interaction-based structures (e.g. food webs) as well as demographic structures (e.g. life cycles). The workshop is meant to be an occasion in which one gets to know techniques and ideas used by other scholars to deal with seemingly different structures that may extrapolate to the study of one's own structure of interest.

Speakers are: Annette Baudisch (University of Southern Denmark), Oana Carja (University of Pennsylvania), Hal Caswell (University of Amsterdam), Nicole Creanza (Vanderbilt University), Florence Debarre (Centre Interdisciplinaire de Recherche en Biologie), André M. de Roos (University of Amsterdam) and Bartlomiej Waclaw (University of Edinburgh).

Registration and abstract submission is open until April 30th:

https://workshops.evolbio.mpg.de/event/7/registrations/7/

Prior to the start of the workshop, Hal Caswell will give a tutorial about sensitivity analysis of demographic models for ecology and evolution in the morning of the first day (Sept 5th). It is meant mostly for junior scientists and researchers new to demographic modelling; some math background is assumed. This tutorial is limited to 20 participants.

We hope to see you at the workshop. Please spread the word to potentially interested colleagues.

Best wishes,
Stefano Giaimo & Laura Hindersin

Conflict, Competition, Cooperation and Complexity at University of Turin, Torino, Italy

Conflict, Competition, Cooperation and Complexity: Using Evolutionary Game Theory to model realistic populations, July 16-19, 2018 at the University of Torino.

https://www.city.ac.uk/department-mathematics/mathematical-biology/FourC -Modelling

This is the third workshop of the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme FourCmodelling (No 690817) under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement. The workshop will consist of talks, discussion, and break out sessions that focus on the following aspects of evolutionary game theory:
1. Multiplayer games in structured populations, 2. Complex foraging games and time constraints, 3. Modelling pandemics as complex systems, 4. Modelling cancer as a complex adaptive system.

This event is open to researchers whose areas of expertise complement these themes. A limited number of positions is reserved for PhD students and junior researchers working/interested in evolutionary game theory and their applications within the scope of this project. The workshop fee is GBP250 and the reduced fee is GBP125 including lunch and coffee/tea during the day.

If you want to be a part of this exciting event, send a short motivation email (indicating whether you want to present a talk/poster) to Mark Broom at Mark.Broom.1@city.ac.uk not later than April 30, 2018. Selected candidates will be notified shortly after.

Yours,

Maria Luisa Sapino and Mark Broom (workshop organisers)

Bio-acoustic Structure at NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) is now accepting applications for its Investigative Workshop, 'Bio-acoustic Structure,' to be held June 25 through 27 at NIMBioS.

Objectives: Acoustic repertoires may serve as a central component for social cohesion, foraging, and reproduction; in turn, these sounds may reflect population or species boundaries for many taxa. As acoustic monitoring has increased in popularity, so has interest in using this data to identify population structure and quantify biological diversity. In cases where it is difficult to obtain other biological samples, acoustic data may be the only source of information from which population structure can be inferred. Historically, acoustic research on different taxa has proceeded independently, utilizing different features and developing different methods for classification or quantifying regional differences. Additionally, while it is clear that there is a genetic component to some bio-acoustic features, the degree to which they are shaped by the environment or can be used as a proxy for relatedness is still uncertain.

In order to make progress on the promise of using acoustics to characterize population structure, this workshop will bring together experts in bio-acoustics of multiple taxa, including birds, frogs, primates, and cetaceans, with mathematicians and computer scientists with expertise in classification, clustering, and information theory to develop a unified approach. This will be accomplished by: 1) compiling guidelines of best practices for designing acoustic surveys, 2) reviewing acoustic features of each taxon useful for identifying regional and taxonomic differences, and 3) reviewing methods for quantifying and comparing information content, generating classification models, and identifying biologically significant clusters. The results of this workshop will describe the current state of using acoustics to assess population structure, create a community bridging taxonomic disciplines, and provide new non-invasive tools for conservation.

The Search for Selection - Tutorial at NIMBioS, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, TN, USA

The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis [NIMBioS] is now accepting applications for its Tutorial, THE SEARCH FOR SELECTION, to be held June 18-22, 2018, at NIMBioS.

Objectives: Biologists are obsessed [indeed, seduced] by the search for signatures of selection in organismal features of interest, ranging from specific traits to genome-wide signatures. A vast number of approaches have been suggested in this search for selection, including genomic-based signatures of recent or ongoing selection, tests based on either excessive amounts or nonrandom patterns of divergence [in both fossil sequences and functional genomics data] and the more classical Lande-Arnold fitness estimates [direct association of phenotypic values with fitness estimates] and their modern extensions [such as aster models]. Given the breadth of such searches, a large amount of machinery has been developed, but is rarely presented in a unified fashion. This tutorial presents an integrated overview of all these approaches, highlighting common themes and divergent assumptions.

The goal of this tutorial is to expose investigators from all branches of biology to this rich menagerie of tests. It is applicable for population geneticists, genome biologists, evolutionary ecologists, paleontologists, functional morphologists, and just about any biologist who ponders on how to formally demonstrate that a feature [or features] of interest might have been shaped by selection.

The intended audience is advanced graduate students, postdocs, and faculty with an interest in searching for targets of selection, be they particular genomic sequences or particular traits. Given the breadth of this topic, we expect students from functional genomics, population and evolutionary genetics, ecology, paleobiology, functional morphology, and statistics [as well as other fields]. The background required is some basic introduction to population and/or quantitative genetics.

Co-Organizers: J. Bruce Walsh, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Univ. of Arizona

Participation in NIMBioS tutorials is by application only. Individuals with a strong interest in the topic are encouraged to apply, and successful applicants will be notified within several weeks after the application deadline. NIMBioS will cover lodging, 5 nights, and provide breakfast and lunch each day at NIMBioS. If needed, limited financial support for travel expenses is available.
