Inference for Expensive Systems in Mathematical Biology

23 Feb 2022, by ablahatherell in Sponsored events

Is It a Solved Problem or Do We Need New Methods?

23 – 24 May 2022

Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, UK

Supported by The Heilbronn Institute Small Grants Scheme

The purpose of this meeting is to bring together mathematical biologists and statisticians to share ideas about best practices for inference across a range of application areas in mathematical biology.

Crucially, it will facilitate a dialogue between these two communities which speak largely different mathematical languages. The conference will focus on inference for computationally “expensive” systems in mathematical biology, such as systems of coupled, highly nonlinear ordinary and partial differential equations.

Key outcomes of the conference will be to identify those application areas most in need of new inference methods and to expose mathematical biologists to recently developed statistical approaches.
