Abstract

This workshop focuses on the recent advances and new perspectives in applied analysis and computational mathematics, focusing on theoretical, computational and applied aspects of mathematical oncology. The meeting will bring together researchers from different disciplines and provide a unique opportunity for in-depth technical discussions and exchange of ideas in all areas involving mathematical and computational sciences, modeling and simulations, as well as their applications in cancer biology and clinics.

The workshop has the dual goals of promoting career development in biomathematics and discussing recent advances in mathematical oncology research. We aim to create opportunities for junior researchers, mainly junior faculty and postdocs in mathematical oncology, to interact and communicate with peer researchers, and to receive mentoring from senior scientists.

The meeting will be used to identify new large-scale problems that require innovative mathematical approaches and expose its participants to contemporary bio-mathematics models, current cancer biology models, and current clinical studies in the field.
