First Announcement

Conference on Mathematical Modeling of Population Dynamics

Będlewo, Poland, June 24-28, 2002.

The conference is organized by the Institute of Mathematics, Polish Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Mathematics, University of Silesia within the EU Programme Centre of Excellence coordinated by the Stefan Banach International Mathematical Centre through the Package "Mathematical Modelling and Analysis of Cellular Populations".

The conference will focus on mathematical modelling and model analysis of populations at various levels, including cells, genes, biomolecules and of population dynamics in

Mathematical aspects of these topics include the following non-exhaustive list

  • Different scales and techniques of modelling
  • Deterministic and stochastic models.
  • Behaviour of populations such as stabilization, oscillation, growth, extinction...
  • The onset of chaos, bifurcation.

    Conference Site
    The meeting will be held at the Mathematical Conference Centre, a palace complex in Będlewo, a property of the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The palace, built in the 19th century by a famous aristocratic Polish family in a neo-gothic style, is surrounded by a 9-hectare park. The village of Będlewo is located ca 30 km to the south from Poznań, one of the biggest cities in Poland, half way between Berlin and Warsaw.

    Conference Fee
    Given the funding obtained from the European Commission and other sources, the standard cost to participants is only 300 EURO. The conference fee includes accommodation, full board (three meals), registration fee, and refreshments during sessions and social programme. Proceedings of the conference are planned to be published by Banach Center Publications. Further reduction of fee is possible for a limited number of participants, especially for Ph.D. students and young researchers.
