Minisymposium for the annual meeting of the Society for Mathematical Biology
July 21, 2019 - July 26, 2019
Since the pioneer work of Fisher and KPP, Wave Propagation in Biological Media has been widely studied in various mathematical models establishing the movement or invasion of species in heterogenous media or the spread of infectious disease among species. Recently, there have been tremendous advancements in the theory of traveling wavefronts itself, with considerable applications to competition or predation models in the biological field
The purpose of this minisymposium is to invite mathematical researchers with biological backgrounds to work together and contribute to the study of biological waves. It will serve as a platform to report new breakthroughs, exchange research ideas and extend academic networks. New collaborations are also expected during and after the meeting. Speakers and talks are carefully selected to make the session attractive to a diverse audience. Especially, PhD students or post-doctoral fellows are encouraged to attend this session for getting research insight in their recent study.
