Interface of Mathematical Biology and Linear Algebra

We are planning to organize a “CBMS Conference: Interface of Mathematical Biology and Linear Algebra” at the University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL on May 23-27, 2022, subject to the approval of our NSF-CBMS proposal. 

The focus of this proposed 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 proposed 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.

This conference is supported in part 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.
