VI ICTP-SAIFR Southern-Summer School on Mathematical Biology

Start time: January 16, 2017 | Ends on: January 27, 2017
Location: São Paulo, Brazil | Venue: IFT-UNESP

This school is aimed at graduate students in Physics, Mathematics, Ecology and Epidemiology, having at least a basic knowledge of calculus and differential equations. The first week will be a basic course on population biology, which also includes modelling exercises. The second week will be an advanced school on up-to-date topics in ecology and evolution. Candidates may apply either for one or two weeks.  Undergraduate students with exceptional records are also encouraged to apply. Limited funds are available for travel and local expenses. There is no registration fee.

Please note that acceptance cannot be taken for granted, as we expect a much higher number of applications than the maximum number of participants. We advise the candidates to carefully complete the application form, providing enough information for the selection committee to take a decision.
