Summary Sentence: SCMB Annual Symposium January 28-29, 2019 at Marcus Nanotechnology Building

Full Summary: The SCMB Annual Symposium is a forum to exchange ideas between the broader mathematics and biosystems communities. There will be plenary talks from mathematicians and biologists, organized in complementary pairs, as well as a a public lecture and poster session. The overall goal of the SCMB Symposium is not just to highlight the many challenges and opportunities at the math-bio interface, but to create a vibrant community advancing the mathematics of complex biological systems.

The SCMB Annual Symposium is a forum to exchange ideas between the broader mathematics and biosystems communities. There will be plenary talks from mathematicians and biologists, organized in complementary pairs, as well as a a public lecture. These will be offered at a colloquium level of detail with an emphasis on engaging the full range of mathematical and biological researchers. A poster session will facilitate discussions among participants in a less formal setting. This will encourage interactions which may then nucleate new research collaborations at the math-bio interface. The overall goal of the SCMB Symposium is not just to highlight the many challenges and opportunities at the math-bio interface, but to create a vibrant community advancing the mathematics of complex biological systems.

SCMB has funding to partially support participants, and priority in allocation will be given to graduate students, postdocs, and junior researchers, including tenure-track faculty, and especially to those who are presenting posters. If funding allows, we may be able to fund additional participants.
