Here is the Conference Attendee List.


Conference Theme: Disease, Medicine, Public Health, and Systems Biology

The 2015 Annual Meeting for The Society for Mathematical Biology will be held in Atlanta, GA from June 30- July 3, 2015. The conference will have new foci on mathematical modeling of disease, medicine, public health, and molecular systems biology, complementing the traditional topics of SMB.  The conference is being hosted by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and Neuroscience Institute within the College of Arts and Sciences at Georgia State University. The conference will be held at the Student/University Center of Georgia State University in Downtown Atlanta.

Questions regarding the conference can be directed to SMB15@gsu.edu.

Pre-conference Mentoring Workshop

The Society for Mathematical Biology is pleased to announce that we will be running a mentoring workshop for students, postdocs and junior faculty. This workshop will take place for a half day on June 29th from 1-6pm in Atlanta, Georgia (just prior to the annual SMB meeting and in the same location).

The aim of the workshop is to provide a central resource for career advice, include working towards academic and non-academic jobs, grant writing and tenure. Parts of the workshop will be designated a "safe space" where students, postdocs and junior faculty can ask questions without fear that a future employer may be in the room.

For more details, please see here.
