The Second Conference on Computational and Mathematical Population Dynamics (CMPD2) will take place in Campinas, Brazil, from July 16 to 20, 2007. This Conference is the second joint meeting of the Conference on Mathematical Population Dynamics (MPD) and the Conference on Deterministic and Stochastic Models for Biological Interactions (DeStoBio), with a 20-year history of international meetings with ever-increasing participation. As in the previous conferences from both series, aim of the meeting is to bring together people from different fields (applied mathematicians, statisticians, engineers, computer scientists, biologists, clinicians, epidemiologists, biomedical scientists, ecologists…) interested in (deterministic and/or stochastic) models for population dynamics and interactions.
Population dynamics here is intended in a very wide sense, including everything from
populations of animals and plants, to populations of cells or molecules. Hence, topics
of the conference will include ecology (including epidemic spread), cell population
dynamics (including immunology, tumor growth) and molecular biology (including molecular evolution and genetics, genomics). The meeting will focus on modeling of quantitative data in these fields, analysis of models, and their applications.
There will be approximately 12 plenary lectures and several parallel sessions organized
by thematic interest.
