Workshop — Kinetic Equations: Recent Developments and Novel Applications
03 May 2020 - 08 May 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
Starting with Boltzmann’s seminal idea of describing the dynamics of a large system of interacting particles by its statistical distribution, kinetic theory has become a powerful tool to model for example the transport of charged carriers in plasma and semiconductor crystals or the herding behavior of large animal flocks. More recently kinetic theory made its way into socio-economic applications, for instance to describe the dynamics of trading agents in economic markets. Various mathematical and computational techniques have been developed in the respective fields to analyze the complex behavior of large interacting particles systems. However many questions in classical as well as novel applications are still open. The workshop will bring together experts working on different aspects of kinetic theory to facilitate exchange, advance further in the field and promote novel research directions.

Workshop — Modeling and Engineering of the Mammalian Embryo
17 May 2020 - 22 May 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
The mammalian embryo is a paradigm of regulative development and self-organization, making it a fascinating system for quantitative experimentation and analysis and mathematical modeling. Most of our current knowledge of mammalian embryology is derived from studies of the mouse embryo, leading to astonishing discoveries of self-organizing and emergent properties ("the laws of development") manifest during embryonic development. Importantly, recent advances in generating human embryo-like structures from human pluripotent stem cells and in vitro cultured human embryos have led to exciting new human-related embryological models that are promising for advancing human embryology. Thus, the aspiration for this BIRS workshop is to bring together world-leading embryologists, theoretical physicists, mathematicians and bioengineers, who share common interests in studying the laws of development, to tackle emerging open questions in the field of embryology. This BIRS workshop will help initiate new collaborations between the attendants, and such collaborative efforts will lead to novel integrative approaches that incorporates quantitative experimentation and analysis and mathematical models developed from formal mathematical or physical principles.

Workshop — Statistical Challenges in the Identification, Validation, and Use of Surrogate Markers
23 Aug 2020 - 28 Aug 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
In studies examining the effectiveness of an intervention, the availability of a surrogate marker that could be used to estimate the intervention effect and could be observed earlier than the primary outcome would allow researchers to make conclusions regarding effectiveness with less required follow-up time. Statistical methodological research on identifying such surrogate markers, assessing the value of such markers, determining when these markers should be collected, and developing tools to use these markers for future studies has led to numerous available methods and has highlighted a number of limitations. There is little agreement on the appropriate approach to identify, validate, and use surrogate markers. This workshop will bring together statisticians, biostatisticians, and epidemiologists to build on recent methodological advances in the evaluation of surrogate markers to identify robust methods that could appropriately be used in practice while also quantifying potential risks if certain necessary assumptions are violated

Workshop — Multiscale Modeling of Plant Growth, Pattern Formation and Actuation
13 Sep 2020 - 18 Sep 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
The workshop is focused at the intersection of three areas: molecular signaling (hormonal control and exchange of signaling molecules), network modeling (mathematical representation of biological feedback mechanisms), and biomechanical concepts (physical and mechanical analysis of force driven deformation or cells and tissues). The workshop will provide a forum for mathematicians, physicists and engineers to develop, exchange and challenge novel approaches to simulate these complex biological processes in integrated manner. The long term goal is to improve our understanding of plant growth, pattern formation and motion.

Workshop — Geometric and Variational Methods in Celestial Mechanics
04 Oct 2020 - 09 Oct 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
The goal of this conference is to bring together different mathematicians who study Celestial Mechanics models from different perspectives and with different techniques to achieve a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the N-body problem.

Workshop — Mathematics and Statistics of Genomic Epidemiology
08 Nov 2020 - 13 Nov 2020 • Oaxaca, Mexico
Organizer:
BIRS-affiliated mathematics research centre, Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO)
Abstract:
This workshop will focus on some mathematical and statistical challenges faced by the discipline of genomic epidemiology, which tries to study the spread, transmission, and other characteristics of infectious disease-causing microbes by leveraging the information contained in their genome. These challenges are exacerbated by the large amounts of data, the relative difficulty of ascertaining transmission patterns in real-life observations, and the inherent heterogeneity of microbes.
