Mathematical Methods in Cancer Biology, Evolution and Therapy
24 Oct 2021 - 29 Oct 2021 • Hangzhou, China
Organizer:
Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, Canada
Abstract:
Present day biology generates a wealth of data from which tumor biology and tumor evolution can be inferred, and therapeutic strategies can be developed. Most clinical (and research) samples are comprised of a mixture of different cells, including multiple different populations of cancer cells (‘subclones’) and a variety of normal cell types. Effective use of these data thus requires data from individual cell types to be deconvolved. A number of subfields are independently developing mathematical and statistical deconvolution techniques. While at first glance these subfields are largely disparate, there are clear opportunities for synergies to be developed. This workshop will fill this gap by bringing together researchers from several of these fragmented subfields across a wide range of backgrounds (computational biology, mathematics, statistics, computer science, biomedicine, etc.) to provide a synergistic forum for cross-disciplinary learning, discussion and collaboration.

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.

BIRS Workshop — Dynamical Principles of Biological and Artificial Neural Networks
09 Jan 2022 - 14 Jan 2022 • Banff, Alberta, Canada
Organizer:
Banff International Research Station (BIRS) for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery
Abstract:
Despite these recent successes at the neuroscience-AI intersection, there are many deep mathematical questions still to answer: 1) given their enormous size and complexity, how can we understand the operations performed by a fully-trained deep learning algorithm, or (analogously) an animal’s brain?; 2) how does the dynamics of activations within biological and artificial neural networks evolve and interact over different timescales (seconds, hours, days, etc.)?; 3) how does randomness in the environment and/or within the neuronal networks themselves contribute to the function of these networks?; 4) what features most enhance (or degrade) the computational power of neuronal networks?; 5) how do brains and AI systems reason in the face of uncertainty? This upcoming BIRS workshop will bring together AI researchers, neuroscientists, and mathematicians, to answer these questions. In so doing, it aims to advance all three of those disciplines, leading to better AI algorithms, and potentially better diagnosis and treatment of those with brain disorders.

BIOINFORMATICS 2022 — 13th International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods and Algorithms
09 Feb 2022 - 11 Feb 2022 • Vienna, Austria
Organizer:
INSTICC, the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication
Abstract:
The purpose of the International Conference on Bioinformatics Models, Methods and Algorithms is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the design and application of modelling frameworks, algorithmic concepts, computational methods, and information technologies to address challenging problems in Bioinformatics and Biomedical research. There is a tremendous need to explore how mathematical, statistical and computational techniques can be used to better analyze, predict, and finally understand biological processes and systems. In the face of the massive amount of currently-available biological data, novel methodologies and tools are required. Areas of interest to this community include systems biology and biological networks (regulatory, neuronal, predator-prey, ecological ones, etc.), sequence analysis, biostatistics, graph models, image analysis, scientific data management and data mining, machine learning, pattern recognition, computational evolutionary biology, structural bioinformatics and structure prediction, computational genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics, and related areas. BIOINFORMATICS encourages authors to submit papers to one of the main topics indicated below, describing original work, including methods, techniques, advanced prototypes, applications, systems, tools or survey papers, reporting research results and/or indicating future directions. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference by one of the authors and published in the proceedings. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions. The proceedings will be indexed by several major international indexers. Special sessions are also welcome. Please contact the secretariat for further information on how to propose a special session.

From Functional Genomics to Systems Biology
15 Nov 2022 - 18 Nov 2022 • Heidelberg, Germany
Organizer:
EMBL
Abstract:
Recent advances in genomics and proteomics technologies have transformed our ability to study diverse molecular processes. We can now use these technologies to study and understand mechanisms regulating transcription, translation, protein abundance, protein-protein, protein-metabolites and protein-drug interactions at a genome- and proteome-wide scale. The current challenge is to convert this data into predictive quantitative models of cellular processes. This massive task requires intensive integration of basic biology, genomics, proteomics, imaging, computational biology, mathematics, engineering and physics. This conference brings together scientists from diverse fields to promote cross-disciplinary collaborations and form a synthesis of appropriate systems-level approaches. We aim to get people out of their comfort zones, to hear new cutting-edge research in diverse areas to form new ideas. Over the past decade, this conference has served as an important venue to help shape the field and to generate a community of scientists that come from very diverse disciplines, each with the common goal to understand the systems level properties of their system of interest.
