SEAMS School - Mathematical Modelling in Biology

Time:09:00:08/03/2017 to  17:45:15/03/2017

Venue/Location: C2-714, VIASM

Organisers: Nguyen Huu Du (VIASM), Nguyen Trung Hieu (HUS), Nguyen Ngoc Phan (HUS), Tran Tat Dat (Max Planck Institute, VIASM), Nguyen Trong Hieu (HUS)

Purpose: This school is aimed to provide foundations of Mathematical Modelling in Biology, and to introduce some problems of the subject which are currently in the field of intensive research. The school is addressed to senior undergraduate students, graduate students, PhD students and researchers who care about this topic, especially applicants from Southeast Asia, Asia. The school is expected to accommodate students with basic knowledge of the subject which will be necessary for further study, and the chance for the young researchers to meet professors from leading research institutions to learn about the opportunities to apply for the scholarships to persuade their PhD education in mathematics.

Invited Speakers: 1. Hien Tran, North Carolina State University (Course M1: Mathematical Modeling Techniques for Biological Systems); 2. Marc Peigne, Université François Rabelais (Course M2: Branching Processes); 3. Thanh Ha Do, Hanoi University of Science, VNU-Hanoi (Course M3: Octave); 4. Tat Dat Tran, Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences (Course M4: An introduction to mathematical population genetics); 5. Fugo Takasu, Nara Women’s University (Course M5: Individual-based modeling of population dynamics).

Organizing institutions: Vietnam Institution for Advanced Study in Mathematics (VIASM), Hanoi University of Science, Vietnam National University (HUS-VNU)
