Mathematical Biology on the Mediterranean Coast – Online Conference

The Mathematical Biology on the Mediterranean Coast-Online Conference 2021 envisions to be the second of a series of conferences started in Samos in 2019 and to be the virtual link to a third edition in 2022.

Since this cycle of summer schools on the Mediterranean islands has been affected by the pandemic, we propose an online meeting that aims to promote the research of young mathematicians working on the modeling of living tissue. In recent years, the interest towards populations of cells growing, migrating and interacting has been rapidly increasing and many teams are focusing their attention on this direction.

The topic of this session will be: Living matter growth, migration and interaction models.

The conference will take place from 25th to 27th May 2021.

During these three days, we will bring together early career researchers and confirmed ones to attend two masterclasses held by:

 and several talks given by young speakers.

The Zoom link will be sent by mail to the participants the day before the start of the conference.
