Theme Areas include:

  • physiological and medical modelling including cancer, diabetes, wound healing, inflammation, cardiovascular disease, tissue engineering and cellular signalling;
  • epidemiology including contact networks, stochastic models and incorporating data in real time;
  • ecological modelling, especially where models and data are brought together to address practical problems.

Of particular interest to researchers who use mathematical ideas and mathematical models in areas such as mathematical biology, biomechanics, computational biology, biophysics, systems biology and quantitative life and medical sciences.

Invited Speakers:

  • Jennifer Flegg
    University of Melbourne
  • Jane Heffernan
    York University, Toronto
  • Yoh Iwasa
    Kyushu University
    Akira Okubo prize winner

  • Hugh Possingham
    University of Queensland
  • Tiina Roose

Conference Events:

Targeted minisymposia; broad range of contributed papers; poster and discussion evening; prize talks; women in mathematics lunch; mentoring lunch; conference banquet at the edge of Sydney Harbour.

Key Dates & Information:

  • Minisymposia Proposals:
    12 February 2018
    The submission system is open here.
    Almost all minisymposia will have four half-hour talks. At this stage, there is room for a few minisymposia of six half-hour talks, but proposers will need to make a strong case for the longer format. Minisymposium speakers should be chosen, as far as possible, to give a good geographic spread and gender balance. Proposals where a substantial number of speakers are drawn from the same institution or the same research group will not be considered.
  • Closing Date for Abstracts for Posters and All Talks (including talks within minisymposia):
    26 March 2018
    The abstract submission system will open early 2018.
