SCHOOL POSTPONED: Mathematical Models Applied to Molecular Dynamics and Oncology


Santiago de Cuba, Cuba


04/05/2020 to 15/05/2020


CIMPA-2020 is addressed for researchers and students (postgraduate/undergraduate) to acquire a training in the field of mathematics applied to medicine. A wide class of mathematical models and applications in issues related to tumor growth, population dynamics, pattern formation and their implications in developmental cancer biology will be developed. Its aims are: to showcase some of the present approaches to the mathematical modeling in medicine with particular emphasis in models related to cancer; to increase the knowledge of techniques of nonlinear dynamics, Ordinary Differential Equations and numerical analysis among the participants; to foster the scientific interaction in Applied Mathematics between Cuban, Latin American and Caribbean students with the speakers from different countries; to encourage the participation of Cuban students particularly from Eastern institutions; to stimulate the participation of Cuban and Latin American and Caribbean speakers to give courses/lectures; and to stimulate the presentation (oral and/or poster) of each student.

Official language of the school: English.
