"Biological invasions and evolutionary biology, stochastic and deterministic models"

Lyon, March 11-15, 2013

The main topics to be highlighted during the workshop are

  • mathematical models for evolutionary biology (deterministic models and stochastic processes)
  • adaptive dynamics
  • invasive species

Recent progresses have been made in the modeling of biological invasions and evolution, from deterministic and stochastic viewpoints. New mathematical tools allow for handling increasing levels of complexity in the models. This includes the influence of climate change, evolutionary changes among species during invasion, evolution in heterogeneous environments. Various effects can now be qualitatively and quantitatively analyzed in the models.

This workshop will gather theoretical biologists and applied mathematicians in order to compare models and methodologies and to enrich the state of the art in the domain of evolutionary biology. 

A round-table meeting will be held on Tuesday 12 (17:00-19:00) to discuss prospects for mathematics applied to ecology and evolutionary processes.

A poster session will hold on Thursday 14 (17:00-19:00).

The conference will take place in

Amphithéatre Camille Jordan, Bâtiment Braconnier,

Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Campus de la Doua, Lyon.
