SMAS Workshop

November 28, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

4th Mathematical Modelling in Biology and Medicine Workshop

Call for Presentations


There will be a one-day workshop on Wednesday 28th November 2018 with presentations covering the applications of mathematical/statistical modelling in the areas of biology and medicine (interpreted in a broad sense).

Presentations discussing experimental science are also highly encouraged.

The keynote speakers are:
  • Dr David Khoury, Kirby Institute, University of New South Wales
    Title: Within-host mathematical modelling in malaria. 
  • Dr Georgios Angelis, Brain and Mind Centre, The University of Sydney
    Title: Estimation of neurotransmitter response maps using a novel spatiotemporal image reconstruction framework and computational models of brain function 
  • Dr Gokhan Tolun, School of Chemistry, The University of Wollongong
    Title: Resolution Revolution in Cryo-Electron Microscopy (Cryo-EM) and Existing Challenges

Preference for supporting presentations will be given to students and early career researchers. If you would like to give a presentation, please contact A/P Mark Nelson (mnelson@uow.edu.au).

The audience for this workshop will be mixed, comprising of undergraduates, postgraduates, academics and non-academics. Some of the audience will have a mathematical background, some will have a background in the medical sciences, and some will have a background in engineering/science.

Successful presentations will take account of the ‘general audience’. Emphasis should be placed on the problem being in investigate and the insights that the research has provided. Speakers giving modelling presentations are encouraged to avoid the gory mathematical details!

Afternoon tea and lunch will be provided for all delegates.

RSVP for catering purposes. Please advise of any dietary requirements.
