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.

Key Dates & Information:

  • The Early Careers Workshop:
    The Early Careers Workshop is an opportunity for junior members (likely students and postdocs) to meet up in advance of the Annual meeting and learn about issues facing mathematical biologists in terms of getting a job, learning about different career options, communications and networking with peers and also more senior society members.
    The workshop will open with a primer on "How to survive SMB: making the most of your conference money".
  • Minisymposia Proposals:
    Proposals are now closed.
  • Closing Date for Abstracts for Posters and All Talks (including talks within minisymposia):
    Abstract submission for contributed and minisymposia presentations is now closed.
  • If you are an SMB member, you can apply for the SMB Landhal Travel Award to travel to SMB meetings. More information can be found here.
