Workshop on New Mathematical Theory to Understand the Effects of Evolution on Range Expansion
02 Nov 2021 - 05 Nov 2021 • The Fields Institute –Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Organizer:
The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences
Abstract:
Many biological species exhibit range shifts: some spread after being introduced into new environments, others follow their preferred climatic conditions under global change. Recent theoretical and empirical results highlight the importance of evolutionary change in these ecological processes. Specifically, they show that evolution can be the driving mechanism behind the range expansion of plants and animals, and that scientists may be underestimating how quickly species can move. However, the ecological and evolutionary processes involved in range expansions have mostly been studied separately, and despite recent advances in theory and experiments, making predictions about the speed of expansion is inherently difficult. The goal of this workshop is to convene mathematicians, modellers, and empiricists to exchange recent results on eco-evolutionary dynamics in species' range expansions and to develop novel mathematical frameworks to address important questions such as the relative contributions of ecological processes, evolutionary processes and environmental conditions on the speed and the variation in speed of range expansion.

Banff Workshop — Preparing for the next pandemic
12 Jun 2022 - 17 Jun 2022 • UBC Okanagan campus in Kelowna, B.C., Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
As of September 28, 2020, 33 million Covid-19 cases have been reported worldwide. With one million deaths attributed to the deadly infection, the pandemic has not only killed a huge number, but also caused worldwide economic disruption. In the process, it has exposed our inadequate preparation and our inability to act promptly and decisively in response to a rapidly spreading novel virus. With an objective to prepare for the next pandemic, the focus of the proposed workshop will be on the scientific questions that emerged during the current Covid-19 crisis. The overall theme of the workshop can be broadly categorized into three intertwined topics: 1) a mechanistic approach to understanding the complex dynamics of novel viruses such as the SARS-CoV-2; 2) parameter inference and proper uncertainty quantification; and 3) design of optimal intervention and policy. The workshop will bring together different communities and foster new interdisciplinary collaborations. Most importantly, the workshop aims to train a cohort of young and diverse group of researchers into responsible scientists who will be better prepared for the next pandemic.

NUMISHEET 2022 — The 12 International Conference and Workshop on Numerical Simulation of 3D Sheet Metal Forming Processes
10 Jul 2022 - 14 Jul 2022 • Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Organizer:
The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS)
Abstract:
The NUMISHEET conference series gathers the most prominent experts in the area of numerical simulation of sheet metal forming processes and inspires an international exchange of ideas and discussions of the related technologies. The 2022 conference takes place in Canada for the first time and features technical and keynote programs, symposia, benchmark applications for comparing numerical predictions of the participants with experimental results, and a cultural excursions program.
