3. CBMS Conference “Interface of Mathematical Biology and Linear Algebra”, University of Central Florida, Orlando, May 23-27, 2022

Former Canadian colleague Zhisheng Shuai is organizing
a conference that features many Canadian invited speakers
and a unique style (group projects, etc). See announcement below.

We are delighted to announce that the CBMS conference
“Interface of Mathematical Biology and Linear Algebra”
will be held (in person) on May 23-27, 2022,
at the University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL, U.S.A.

This CBMS conference focuses on the cutting-edge studies
at the interface of these two long-time interacting mathematical branches,
which has witnessed significant new advances at a higher level.
Specifically, recent advances of new algebraic theories and
novel applications of classic matrix results have helped
to resolve many challenges in mathematical biology, while
biologically driven research problems have also attracted
an increasing number of researchers in the field of linear algebra.

The conference features ten main lectures co-delivered by
three principal lecturers (all from Canada!):
Pauline van den Driessche (University of Victoria),
Stephen Kirkland (University of Manitoba), and
Mark Lewis (University of Alberta).
In addition, participants will form 6-8 groups and work on
a selected research project under the supervision of a principal lecturer
or a senior speaker. [Thus, we welcome submissions of research projects
related to the conference focus.]
A poster session will be held to include contributed presentations.

Detailed information regarding conference registration, financial support,
accommodation, and travel can be found at the conference website:

Please feel free to contact us via the conference email address

2022cbms@gmail.com

if you have any questions. We hope to see you in Orlando this May!
