About the Conference
The Eighth International Conferences on Mathematical Modeling and Analysis of Populations in Biological Systems (ICMA-VIII), will be held at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, hosted by the Department of Mathematics. The previous seven conferences in this series were held, respectively, at:
- University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, October 2007 (ICMA-I)
- University of Alabama in Huntsville, Huntsville, Alabama, October 2009 (ICMA-II)
- Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas, October 2011 (ICMA-III)
- Texas Tech University, Lubbock, Texas, October 2013 (ICMA-IV)
- Western University, London, Ontario, Canada, October 2015 (ICMA-V)
- University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, October 2017 (ICMA-VI)
- Arizona State University, Tempe, Arizona, October 2019 (ICMA-VII)
ICMA-VIII will take place on the campus of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Friday, March 25, 8:00 am - 12:00 noon, at the Student Union
Friday, March 25, 1:00 pm - Sunday, March 27, 5:00 pm, at Oliver Hall.
The broad, general theme of the conference is the formulation, validation, analysis and simulation of mathematical models for the spatiotemporal dynamics of biological populations. A special emphasis at this eighth conference will be placed on multiple scale dynamics in ecology, epidemiology, and systems biology; many biological systems operate on multiple spatial and temporal scales and the incorporation of these scales may be essential for capturing system dynamics. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:
- Immuno-epidemiological and vector-host systems
- Molecular-cellular modeling in systems biology and oncology
- Biological invasions and persistence
- Adaptation and evolutionary dynamics
- Biological systems operating on multiple spatial or temporal scales
ICMA-VIII aims to accomplish at least three broad tasks: scientific progress, scientific collaboration, and the training of a future generation of mathematical biologists. The conference will thus have a significant impact, both nationally and internationally, on future research in biomathematics and mathematical biology. The collaborative opportunities provided to researchers at all points of the career path from undergraduate and graduate students, to early-career faculty, to established senior researchers will establish new directions and avenues for the national and international research community.
