for information. There will be a mentoring workshop on July 16 which you can sign up for there. We've got a great lineup of 39 minisymposia, and about 100 talks and 100 posters, and I hope to see all of you here!
From: ICMA 2017 <email@example.com> Date: Fri, Apr 7, 2017 at 3:27 AM Subject: 6th ICMA conference, Oct 20-22, Tucson, AZ
The Sixth International Conference on Mathematical Modeling and Analysis of Populations in Biological Systems (ICMA-VI) will take place October 20-22, 2017, at University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ. The conference is dedicated to the memory of Karl Hadeler.
The general theme of the ICMA conferences is the analysis of mathematical models for the temporal dynamics of biological populations. A special emphasis at this sixth conference will be placed on the effects of environmental/climate change.
Specific topics include, but are not limited to: Population & ecological dynamics; Adaptation & evolutionary dynamics; Dynamics of infectious diseases; Dispersal and distribution of populations; Invasions and endangered species; Management of natural resources.
Conference: SEB Gothenburg, Sweden, 3-6 July 2017 Session: Membrane Dynamics: Signalling and Polarity Organisers: Nick Monk (Sheffield, UK) and Katie Fisher (Sheffild, UK)
Speakers: Dr Martin Baron (University of Manchester, UK) - Tuning Notch signalling through and an endocytic regulatory network: revisiting old genetic problems with new insights Dr Natasha Savage (University of Liverpool, UK) - Molecular mechanisms underpinning polarised growth Dr Katie Fisher (University of Sheffield, UK) - Molecular mechanisms of coordinated cell polarisation in the Drosophila wing Dr Linda Nemetschke (MPI-CBG, Germany) - Crumbs prevents ectopic Notch activation in Drosophila by inibiting ligand-independent endocytosis
In this session we will explore the interplay between membrane compartments, polarity components and signalling pathways during development, with a particular emphasis on mathematical models. We currently have slots available for short talks selected from submitted abstracts. Please consider submitting an abstract and spreading the word about this session.

Long-term visitor funding available at the Fields Institute (Toronto)
The Fields Institute will host a thematic program on "Emerging Challenges in Mathematical Biology" from January to June 2018. Funding is available for long-term visitors (up to six months) to (partially) cover airfare and accommodation. We are looking for individuals to participate in the workshops, to interact with postdoctoral fellows, to visit related research labs at nearby universities, and to contribute to the community of researchers in Mathematical biology at the Institute during this exciting program. For details and to submit your funding application, please see
