Applied Math Perspectives 2011 (by Ian Frigaard, UBC)

CAIMS/SCMAI, with the generous support of PIMS, MITACS, BIRS & NSF is
organising a series of short workshops and conferences, supporting the
flagship ICIAM 2011 meeting of the Applied Mathematics community in
Vancouver. These events reflect the diversity and strengths of applied
mathematics today.

Homepages for all events can be accessed via the above link. Interested
potential participants are invited to contact the individual organisers.
Meetings include:

Advances in the Numerical Solution of Constrained Differential Equations

Applied Mathematics Perspectives 2011 (ICIAM Satellite Meetings)
Mathematical Biology Workshop and IGTC Summit (Roderick Edwards, University of Victoria)

Dates: July 14-16, 2011
Place: University of Victoria, Victoria, BC

Mathematical Biology is an important growing area of Applied Mathematics, and Canada has active researchers in a number of current areas including the two focal topics of our proposed workshop: mathematical physiology (particularly gene and neuronal networks) and structured population dynamics. Mathematics is increasingly proving a valuable tool for modelling physiological systems and is particularly indispensable in the past-genomic era for understanding the function of gene and neuronal networks. Thus, mathematics may lead to advances in disease treatment. Structured population dynamics has recently gained tremendous interest because such models can incorporate more biological realism such as stage, age, social and spatial structures of populations, and thus lead to more accurate predictions and the design of more effective control strategies. Both topics inspire mathematical research in dynamical systems, partial differential equations, and stochastic processes.
The event will also serve as the annual Summit of the IGTC (International Graduate Training Centre) in Mathematical Biology.

Plenary speakers:

Linda Allen (Texas Tech)
Mads Kaern (Ottawa)
Simon Levin (Princeton)
Michael Mackey (McGill)

Invited speakers:

Mark Lewis (Alberta)
Yoh Iwasa (Kyushu)
Kerry Landman (Melbourne)
Hidde de Jong (INRIA, Rh?ne-Alpes)
Mois?s Santill??n (Monterrey, Mexico)
Karl Hadeler (T?bingen, Arizona State)
Liliana Ironi (CNR, Pavia Italy)
Benoit Perthame (UPMC Paris VI)
Leah Edelstein-Keshet (British Columbia)
Leon Glass (McGill)

The workshop is intended to attract top international researchers to interact in a workshop setting with Canadian researchers, and to participate in ICIAM 2011. Students involved in the PIMS International Graduate Training Centre (IGTC) in Mathematical Biology will participate and thereby benefit from the inspiration of the participating researchers, who can also give them valuable feedback on their own research projects.

Registration: coming soon
