Workshop on Modeling Biological Phenomena from Nano to Macro Scales at The Fields Institute, Toronto, Canada

The Workshop on Modeling Biological Phenomena from Nano to Macro Scales will take place at The Fields Institute (Toronto, Canada) from April 30 to May 4, 2018. It will gather world class experts in this field in an interdisciplinary environment.

Topics include:

This environment will provide young participants and interested researchers a unique opportunity to update their background and exchange information with other researchers with similar interests. Selected abstracts may be considered for short presentations or posters.

The workshop is integrated in a three week period of activities (April 23 - May 11) devoted to the modeling, analysis and simulation of biomedical and biological problems at The Fields Institute. Other activities include a mini-course on cellular modeling addressed to young students (April 23 - 27).

Ninth Workshop on Dynamical Systems Applied to Biology and Natural Sciences at Torino, Italy

Submissions for the Ninth Workshop on Dynamical Systems Applied to Biology and Natural Sciences (DSABNS2018) are now open.

The workshop will take place in Torino, Italy, on February 7-9, 2018 and is open both to theoretical methods and to practical applications; topics include all areas in mathematical biology, but especially population dynamics, eco-epidemiology, epidemiology of infectious diseases, molecular and antigenic evolution.

Registration and abstract submission are possible on the web page http://dsabns2018.rd.ciencias.ulisboa.pt/

Deadline for abstract submission is December 15, 2017.

It would be helpful for organizing the logistics that participants register soon, possibly by November 15; in case you need to updated your abstract after registration, that would be possible till Dec. 15th, by sending an email, with the updated tex (or doc) file, to biomathgroup@gmail.com.

If you need further information check the web page

4th ANdinA International Workshop at San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina

Species range extensions and local adaptation: challenging ecological and evolutionary ideas and assumptions.

ANdinA holds its unique dialogue-style workshops in wonderful locations around the world every two years. We bring together 30-40 researchers from a diverse range of disciplines to debate challenges, deconstruct contentious issues, develop new ideas and expand future horizons in topics related to ecology, evolution and management. We then publish the results of our deliberations and ideally walk away with the beginnings of new collaborations. This time we will be in the mountains of Patagonia discussing two distinct but inter-dependent topics: species range extensions and local adaptation. The meeting should therefore appeal to researchers interested in contexts such as responses to climate and other environmental change, species invasions, weed/pest management, conservation and adaptation to global change.

The cost for everything (except travel to Patagonia and alcoholic beverages) is just US$1000. One third of places are reserved for Early-Career Researchers (who pay only US$400). Everyone will have the opportunity to co-author at least one paper to be submitted to an international journal.

We are seeking expressions of interest from enthusiastic people who are prepared to actively involve themselves in relaxed, free-flowing dialogue. Come to challenge and to be challenged in a supportive, egalitarian environment. Contributions will be valued from any relevant area of research: molecular evolution to mathematical ecology, biophysical to social sciences, pure to applied, specialists to generalists. For those seeking inspiring interactions with inspiring people in truly inspiring surroundings, please visit our web site for further information, including how to apply.

Multiscale Analysis and Modeling of Collective Migration in Biological Systems at Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZIF), University of Bielefeld, Germany

The main goal of this workshop is to promote an exchange of ideas and the establishment of interdisciplinary collaborations between experts in a quickly growing research area dealing with collective motion in biological systems at the cellular and organismic scale. Collective motion is an emergent phenomenon observed in systems consisting of many moving and locally interacting units. In particular, collective cell motion plays a crucial role in multi-cellular organisms during embryonic development, but also in patho-physiological situations as wound healing, immune response or cancer invasion.

We address two main topics: first, new data-based methods used for reverse-engineering interactions between units from their trajectories, and, secondly, the characterisation of unifying principles behind the diverse manifestations of collective motion on the basis of mathematical models. We will focus on multiscale analysis of the mathematical models for collective motion which allows to predict behaviours on one scale, e.g. the scale of the population, from known behaviour on other scales, e.g. the individual interaction scale.

Registration information:
If you like to participate please contact Mrs Hoffmann (marina.hoffmann@uni-bielefeld.de) by Sunday, 3 September 2017 at the latest.

There is no conference fee.

A limited number of single rooms is available at ZiF. The conference center may also book a hotel for you if you ask for this service. A contingent of single rooms at a special conference rate is reserved.

The Beauty of Theoretical Biology at Institution, City, Country

Data analysis, numerical treatment of a model, or simulation results can result in stunning images which represent pieces of art just by themselves. We aim at collecting images which were created in the process of research in theoretical biology, and publishing a collection of these images in a book. Our partner in this project is Springer Publishing (Heidelberg), showing strong interest and support. In addition, the images will be prepared for exhibition at conferences and public places of participating academic institutions.

We are inviting contributions consisting of the following two parts:

The Stunning Image
Preferentially generated as scalable vector graphics (EPS or SVG) or with a possibility for reproduction at very high resolution. We strongly welcome images that were postprocessed solely with the aim at enhancing visual impact (artist's touch). All images must be related to a topic in the field of theoretical biology. They may be derived from data analysis, modeling or simulation, but also submission of 'free art' is possible, if the connection to theoretical biology is made clear by the artist.

Extended and Structured Abstract (1 page)

This abstract should contain the following sections:

How to submit:
Please use the Springer Online Conference System (OCS) for your submission. Go to https://ocs.springer.com/ocs/en/home/THEORY2017
or https://ocs.springer.com/ocs/en/requestregistration/THEORY2017
and register using your email address. At the first registration the system provides a password.

After registration the OCS menu provides the option to submit. Alternatively use the following link for direct submission:

For first submissions please provide ONLY:

- Title (creative, not scientific)

- List of authors and their affiliations

- The image

Image format:
The system requires images to be submitted as PDF. If your image is given in another format the PDF can be the converted image (or a screen shot). In this case the real image should be submitted as a source file in .zip format.

Please note: Only for selected images we will ask for a structured abstract at a later time point. Abstract or keywords are not required for the first submission.

Please use the field 'Abstract' to provide information on the image format (e.g. 'submitted as PDF' or 'zipped file contains image in .svg format').

If the system requires keywords just repeat the title.
