Due to the revolutionary new technologies of biological data collection, an enormous amount of information on a molecular and cellular scale has become available. Because of the multiscale and nonlinear character, biological processes cannot be explained by purely conceptual models and require tools such as mathematical modelling, analysis and simulation.

Partial differential equations have long served to model regulatory feedbacks and transport processes in multicellular biological systems. In the last years, there has been a fast development of the PDE methods dictated by the novel aspects of biological observation. This conference will be devoted to the achievements of some of them. We will focus on mathematical techniques used to formulate and analyse model equations (multiscale analysis, partial differential equations, dynamical systems and measure theory). Main topics will be: structured population dynamics, pattern formation and chemotaxis.

Recent results and theoretical methods will be discussed in the context of biological applications. The goal is to highlight novel mathematical problems arising in such modelling. Therefore, the conference will include presentations related to the analytical aspects of methodology as well as presentations of the modelling problems and numerical results. The intellectual merit of the proposed activity is to create synergy between model builders and ``pure'' mathematicians in order to accelerate development of new approaches and techniques.

The proposed meeting also aims at developing international links and bringing more attention to the mathematical challenges arising in cell biology.
The conference is organized by The Mathematical Research and Conference Center, Bedlewo, Poland which is a part of the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The details concerning the accommodation and hints how to get to Bedlewo can be found at the web page of the organizers.
