Interface of Mathematical Biology and Linear Algebra

We are pleased to announce that the “CBMS Conference: Interface of Mathematical Biology and Linear Algebra” will be held (in person) at the University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL on May 23-27, 2022. 

This conference is part of the regional research conference series sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Conference Board of the Mathematical Sciences (CBMS). 

The focus of this CBMS conference is at the cutting-edge studies at the interface of these two long-time interacting mathematical branches, which has witnessed significant new advances at a higher level. Specifically, recent advances of new algebraic theories and novel applications of classic matrix results have helped to resolve many challenges in mathematical biology, while biologically-driven research problems have also attracted an increasing number of researchers in the field of linear algebra. The CBMS conference will bring together both groups of researchers who have been working on biologically-driven algebraic problems and/or algebraically-forced biological applications, provide a unique platform to communicate the recent advances in their fields, strengthen the existing and initiate new collaborations across the two branches, and, most importantly, showcase the interface of mathematical biology and linear algebra for early-career researchers and graduate students.

The CBMS conference features ten main lectures co-delivered by principal lecturers:  Pauline van den Driessche (University of Victoria), Stephen Kirkland (University of Manitoba), and Mark Lewis (University of Alberta).

This conference is supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant Number 2132585. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this conference are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation. 

Additional support for this conference is provided by the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) through its Participating Institution (PI) Program. PI members may use IMA/PI funds to support personnel’s travel to this conference.

Local sponsorships are from the Department of Mathematics, the College of Sciences, the College of Graduate Studies, and the Office of Research at the University of Central Florida.
