BU Theory in Biology Meeting
We are planning the first annual Theory in Biology Meeting here at Boston University, to take place on Thursday, May 24 through Friday, May 25, 2018, made possible by the generous support of the Simons Foundation through their MMLS Program.
Our goal is to bring together theorists to discuss conceptual challenges in biology. We envision this conference as a unique opportunity to expose the abstract and mathematical side of research that transcends specific systems. For 2018, the meeting is organized around the theme of community ecology, metabolism, and the origin of life. These fields address similar challenges, but often from different perspectives. By bringing these perspectives together, we hope that the conference will catalyze major theoretical advances.
The conference will consist of two full days of talks, starting Thursday morning (May 24) and ending Friday evening at 6pm (May 25), held in the Photonics Center and the Center for Integrated Life Sciences and Engineering on the campus of Boston University. Thursday lunch will include a poster session, to which all attendees are welcome to contribute. The registration fee covers lunch and coffee breaks for both days.
