Together with the European Society for Mathematical and Theoretical Biology ESMTB, the EMS will organize the Year of Mathematical Biology 2018. This year will feature events related to mathematical biology at the European level, including the European Conference on Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ECMTB) 2018 in Lisbon, Portugal, a thematic program at the Mittag-Leffler institute, and various other initiatives and events. The Society for Mathematical Biology (SMB) has also joined this initiative transforming it into a worldwide scale event.

The list of activities and the list of members of the organizing committee, chaired by Jose Antonio Carrillo (Chair of the Applied Mathematics Committee, EMS), is maintained at: http://www.euro-math-soc.eu/year-mathematical-biology-2018/ .
