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
