Year of Mathematical Biology 2018

The year of Mathematical Biology 2018 is a joint venture of the European Mathematical Society (EMS) and the European Society for Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ESMTB). The main objectives are to celebrate the huge increase and importance of applications of mathematics to biology and life sciences in the last years and to foster the feedback loop between life sciences and mathematics for years to come. Applications of mathematics in Biology are completely opening new pathways of interactions and they are a huge source of new mathematical problems.

An announcement for the ECTMB-2018, the joint conference ESMTB-EMS, can be seen here.

The ECMTB 2018 Organizing Committee is setting up a Mentorship Program to facilitate research and career interactions between junior and senior scientists attending the meeting. Participants of ECMTB 2018 can sign up to be part of the mentorship program, either as a mentee, a mentor, or both. If you wish to participate in the Mentorship Program at ECMTB 2018, please fill in the REGISTRATION FORM not later than May 10th, 2018. You can find more information about the ECMTB 2018 Mentorship Program  here.
