July 2019

Minisymposium for the annual meeting of the Society for Mathematical Biology

July 21, 2019 - July 26, 2019
McGill University Montreal, Quebec Canada + Google Map

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…

Diversity in Mathematics: an undergraduate summer school for women in mathematics

July 22, 2019 - August 8, 2019
PIMS at UBC and SFU Vancouver, British Columbia Canada

This is a multi-year, multi-level approach to promoting diversity and inclusivity in STEM. The annual two-week program will encompass two concurrent, partially overlapping events targeting two distinct groups: 1. A summer school for top undergraduate women from across Canada and the northwest US, currently specializing in mathematics or a closely related STEM field, such as computer science, physics and statistics. The program will expose them to the many facets of mathematical sciences as a career in an intense two week…

Workshop: Agent based Models and the mathematical equations that describe them

August 19, 2019
Fredericton Convention Centre, 670 Queen Street
Fredericton, New Brunswick E3B 1C2 Canada
+ Google Map

This workshop will clarify the relationship between Agent Based Models (ABMs) and familiar equations from mathematical ecology. This is a hands-on workshop where participants will run and analyze computer code. Mathematical approximations to ABMs are valuable because they (1) reduce computational time to facilitate a more thorough model investigation, (2) eliminate some complexity from the model description to yield clearer results, and (3) reveal parallels with the existing mathematical ecology literature. The workshop is open to all interested registrants, with…

Symposium: The Future of Evolutionary Game Theory

August 20, 2019
Fredericton Convention Centre, 670 Queen Street
Fredericton, New Brunswick E3B 1C2 Canada
+ Google Map

This symposium will explore the analysis and application of game theoretical models to problems in evolutionary ecology. Special emphasis is placed on the dynamics of strategy change, as in evolutionary systems payoffs to players change the distribution of strategies in future generations and (under ecological constraints) payoff matrices may change in response. The properties of evolutionary game-theoretic models will be discussed, with applications to questions in eco-evolutionary dynamics, coevolution, sexual selection, parental care, and other areas. Speakers are drawn from…

Borders in public health and mathematical epidemiology

October 21, 2019 - October 25, 2019
Fields Institute, 222 College St.
Toronto, Ontario M5T 3J1 Canada
+ Google Map

Most research in Mathematical Epidemiology focuses on infectious disease characteristics within local, isolated populations and geographic regions. However, infectious diseases are not confined to small regions. They cross borders, affecting multiple populations, jurisdictions, and governments. This workshop aims to foster mathematical models of infectious diseases across borders and at the intersection of mathematics and public health. An important component of this workshop is the inclusion of infectious disease modellers that work in local, federal, and global health organizations. The workshop…

February 2020

Open quantum systems

February 24, 2020 - March 13, 2020
AIMS Centre of Excellence Limbe, Cameroon

This course is concerned with the behaviour quantum systems under the influence of external noise. The theory describes generic noise induced features, such as decoherence, entanglement, thermalization. They are of core interest in applications in various branches of science: in quantum information and computation, chemistry, material sciences and even in biology. Basic familiarity with this theory is a good (and necessary) foundation for a more advanced understanding of most modern quantum sciences. The course will be taught by Marco Merkli…
