BIOMAT-2012. Self-organization and collective dynamics in the live sciences: swarms, biofilms, traffic

Jul 2 2012 - 09:00
Jul 7 2012 - 19:00

The conference will be held in Granada (SPAIN), at the Facultad de Ciencias (Universidad de Granada)

Short description of the event: 

The aim of the BIOMAT school is to combine long seminars with courses of
several specialists in the topics. Programme: -Bellomo, Nicola (Politecnico di
Torino, Italy): On the mathematical theory of the dynamics of swarms viewed as
complex systems -Bressan, Alberto (Penn State University, USA): Modeling and
optimization for traffic flow -Degond, Pierre (Université de Toulouse, France):
Mathematical models of collective dynamics in life sciences -Hemelrijk,
Charlotte K. (University of Groningen, The Netherlands): The Self-organisation
of fish schools and bird flocks -Klapper, Isaac (Montana State University,
USA): Microbial communities -Schadschneider, Andreas (University of Cologne,
Germany): From ant trails to pedestrian dynamics: empirical studies and
cellular automata models During the school a meeting of "young researchers
modelling biological processes" is organized. The call to participate in this
meeting is open until May 31.
