## Victor Donnay: Ordinary Differential Equations in Real World Situations

This course for junior and senior math majors uses mathematics from ordinary differential equations, to analyze and understand a variety of real-world problems. Among the civic problems explored are specific instances of population growth and over-population, over-use of natural resources … Continue reading

The Second International Conference on Applied Mathematics and Informatics (ICAMI’2013) will be organized during November 24 – 29, 2013 in San Andres Island, Colombia within the framework of the REALMA Network (REALMA). ICAMI’2013 will be hosted by the community of Colombian scholars, engineers and other specialists working in the field of applied mathematics and its adjunct areas, informatics and computer sciences. Continue reading

This is part of a series of workshops organized by IMPA aiming at bringing together a multidisciplinary group of scientists to study problems in the biophysical sciences upon which mathematics may have an impact. This year’s main topics are: Inverse … Continue reading

The thematic program “Mathematical Biology” will be held in Lyon from March 4th to June 14th, 2013. The main topics to be addressed in this program are: cell biology, population dynamics, quantitative modeling for drug development, systems biology, and evolutionary … Continue reading

The workshop will include plenary lectures by leading researchers in tumor-immune system dynamics, parallel sessions of contributed/invited talks by senior and junior scientists, a poster session for graduate students, and a panel discussion on how to foster and sustain international collaborations in this highly multidisciplinary field of cancer immunology.

On 1 January 2013, it will be twenty years since Epidemic Models started as a 6-month programme in the first year of the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences. Since then, the field has grown enormously, in topics addressed, methods … Continue reading

The summer school school will include lectures on mathematical epidemiology, and one of the most important aspects will be projects for groups of 4–6 students, mixing scientific backgrounds and levels of experience, and focusing on real-world problems around which students develop and analyze models. It will also incorporate several lectures on public-health topics with focus on those relevant to other events of MPE2013 such as global spread, Indigenous populations health, vector-borne diseases and integration of surveillance, statistical data analysis and dynamical modelling and simulations.

Climate change is a significant and emerging threat to public health, and changes the way we must look at protecting vulnerable populations. Continue reading

Africa counts 54 countries and 15% of the world population, however, the combined GDP of African countries represented in 2003 just over 3% of the world’s GDP. Continue reading

Recent debates surrounding the HPV vaccine and the rush to develop and distribute a vaccine during the 2009 influenza pandemic are reminders of the important role immunization plays in our fight against infectious diseases. Continue reading

This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will bring practicing social scientists and statisticians who study exponential random graph models and use these models into contact with an emerging group of mathematicians who use a variety of new tools, … Continue reading
