BIOMAT-2012. Self-organization and collective dynamics in the live sciences: swarms, biofilms, traffic

Monday, July 2, 2012 - 3:00am to Saturday, July 7, 2012 - 1:00pm

The aim of the BIOMAT school is to combine long seminars with courses of
several specialists in the topics. Programme: -Bellomo, Nicola (Politecnico di
Torino, Italy): On the mathematical theory of the dynamics of swarms viewed as
complex systems -Bressan, Alberto (Penn State University, USA): Modeling and
optimization for traffic flow -Degond, Pierre (Université de Toulouse, France):
Mathematical models of collective dynamics in life sciences -Hemelrijk,
Charlotte K. (University of Groningen, The Netherlands): The Self-organisation
of fish schools and bird flocks -Klapper, Isaac (Montana State University,
USA): Microbial communities -Schadschneider, Andreas (University of Cologne,
Germany): From ant trails to pedestrian dynamics: empirical studies and
cellular automata models During the school a meeting of "young researchers
modelling biological processes" is organized. The call to participate in this
meeting is open until May 31.

The conference will be held in Granada (SPAIN), at the Facultad de Ciencias (Universidad de Granada)
