Melanie Colón Posted November 18, 2015 Share Posted November 18, 2015 The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis(NIMBioS) is now accepting applications for its Tutorial, "GameTheoretical Modeling of Evolution in Structured Populations," to be heldApril 25-27, 2016, at NIMBioS.*Objectives: *Participants will be introduced to the discrete graphtheory methods and models of structured population as well as classicalcontinuous models based on differential equations. They will learn howto use such methods and/or build and analyze models in the context ofthe tutorial's topics and will work in small groups to experience how touse the methodology to describe, simulate, and analyze the relevantbiological systems.Participants will be exposed to software thatimplements the mathematical methods, aids visualization, and facilitatescomputations and analyses.Participants will learn how the tutorialmaterials may fit into mathematics and biology courses or be used as anintroduction to independent studies or undergraduate research.*Location: *NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville*Co-Organizers: *Mark Broom, Mathematics, City Univ. London; JonathanRowell, Mathematics and Statistics, Univ. of North Carolina, Greensboro;Jan Rychtar, Mathematics and Statistics, Univ. of North Carolina,Greensboro; andJeremy Van Cleve, Biology, Univ. of KentuckyFor more information about the tutorial and a link to the onlineapplication form, go to http://www.nimbios.org/tutorials/TT_gametheoryParticipation in NIMBioS tutorials is by application only. Individualswith a strong interest in the topic are encouraged to apply, andsuccessful applicants will be notified within two weeks after theapplication deadline. If needed, financial support for travel, meals,and lodging is available for tutorial attendees.*Application deadline:* February 15, 2016The National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis(NIMBioS) (http://www.nimbios.org) brings together researchers fromaround the world to collaborate across disciplinary boundaries toinvestigate solutions to basic and applied problems in the lifesciences. NIMBioS is sponsored by the National Science Foundation, withadditional support from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
