Mathematical and Statistical Modeling of Complex Systems






The N'Djamena 2023 CIMPA research school aims to introduce graduate students and young mathematicians to mathematical and statistical tools to model complex systems. The goal is to prepare the participants to model concrete problems rooted in African realities by addressing timely challenges such as infectious diseases, drought or the effects of human migration on ecosystems. This school will present an opportunity for participants to expand their knowledge, find new axes of research and brainstorming with world-class scientific leaders on the exciting topic of mathematical modeling of complex systems.

Official language of the school: English and French
