OUTROS EVENTOS

VII ICTP-SAIFR Southern-Summer School on Mathematical Biology

Start time: January 15, 2018

Ends on: January 21, 2018

Location: São Paulo, Brazil

Venue: IFT-UNESP

Description:
This school is aimed at graduate students in Physics, Mathematics, Ecology and Epidemiology, having at least a basic knowledge of calculus and differential equations. Lectures cover the basics of population dynamics and are supplemented with modelling exercises addressing mainly problems in ecology, epidemiology and evolution. Undergraduate students with exceptional records are also encouraged to apply. Limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

This activity will be followed by the ‘School on Physics Applications in Biology’. Candidates may apply either for one or both schools, and preference will be given to PhD students in South America. There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

Please note that acceptance cannot be taken for granted, as we expect a much higher number of applications than the maximum number of participants. We advise the candidates to carefully complete the application form, providing enough information for the selection committee to take a decision.

ICTP-SAIFR School on Physics Applications in Biology

Start time: January 22, 2018

Ends on: January 27, 2018

Location: São Paulo, Brazil

Venue: IFT-UNESP

Description:
Although new experimental technology is partly responsible for the current revolution in biological research, theoretical models developed by physicists are also playing an important role in changing the way biological research is being performed. The number of theoretical physicists and applied mathematicians migrating into biology has dramatically increased throughout the world, but South America still lags behind.

The one-week school on Physics Application in Biology will feature lectures by physicists and applied mathematicians who have made important contributions to different areas of biological research. This activity will include minicourses, discussion sessions and group exercises on topics including neuroscience, evolutionary dynamics, time- series analysis applied to ecology and epidemiology, collective behavior, and optimization. The school is intended for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the physical and biological sciences.

This activity will be preceded by the ‘VII Southern-Summer School on Mathematical Biology’. Candidates may apply either for one or both schools, and preference will be given to PhD students in South America. There is no registration fee and limited funds are available for travel and local expenses.

VI ICTP-SAIFR Southern-Summer School on Mathematical Biology
From January 16th to 27th, 2017, at São Paulo, Brazil
Venue: IFT-UNESP
Application deadline: November 11, 2016

This school is aimed at graduate students in Physics, Mathematics, Ecology and Epidemiology, having at least a basic knowledge of calculus and differential equations. The first week will be a basic course on population biology, which also includes modelling exercises. The second week will be an advanced school on up-to-date topics in ecology and evolution. Candidates may apply either for one or two weeks. Undergraduate students with exceptional records are also encouraged to apply. Limited funds are available for travel and local expenses. There is no registration fee.

Please note that acceptance cannot be taken for granted, as we expect a much higher number of applications than the maximum number of participants. We advise the candidates to carefully complete the application form, providing enough information for the selection committee to take a decision.
