Modelling Biological Evolution 2015: Linking Mathematical Theories with Empirical Realities

Combined with the LMS workshop: Mathematical and Computational Models in Evolutionary Biology: Shifting the Existing Paradigms

Modelling Biological Evolution 2015: Linking Mathematical Theories with Empirical Realities


University of Leicester (UK), April 28 - May 1, 2015

Main Organiser Andrew Morozov (University of Leicester, UK)

Sponsored by the University of Leicester and London Mathematical Society


The conference will focus on various aspects of modelling evolution, adaptation and acclimation in different biological systems ranging from macromolecules and cells to processes in sociobiology, including the evolution of human culture and behaviour. Various methods and modelling techniques will be represented including (but not restricted to) general aspects of game theory, adaptive dynamics, optimization, reinforcement learning, model reduction, individual based models as well as their combinations. An important part of the conference will be comparison of the results obtained based on different mathematical techniques to stimulate further advances in modelling biological evolution. The conference is also expected to be an open forum for communication (and probably, hot debates!) between empirical evolutionary biologists and mathematicians with the main goal of enhancing interdisciplinary approaches and stimulating further advances in understanding biological evolution.
