A growing interest has been shown in delay differential equations (DDEs) due to their important applications in biology, medicine, immunology, and epidemiology. Using mathematical models and DDEs of infectious diseases, we can study the pathogenesis of disease processes, predict outbreaks, and minimize outbreak severity and frequency.
This focused workshop DDEs-AIID will bring together mathematicians and life science scholars at AUA universities, as well as outside of AUA universities, to meet, share, and discuss research interested in mathematical modeling with delay differential equations and their applications to immunology and infectious diseases. There will be a round table discussion on open problems and questions in the context of infectious diseases, cancer, and chronic diseases, as well as future directions in multidisciplinary research.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
This Workshop will present new theoretical and numerical methods, enhance interdisciplinary interaction between mathematics and life sciences, and stimulate collaborations in immunobiological modeling.
The scientific program of the workshop will consist of 50-minute plenary lectures, 30-minute invited lectures and 20-minute contributed talks.
The participants of AUA universities are exempt from registration fees, will be provided with accommodation, and internal transportation.
We are pleased to announce that the selected papers will be published in the Special Issue "Delay Differential Equations and Applications to Immunology and Infectious Diseases" of "Mathematical Biosciences and Engineering", published by AIMS. Here is the link for submissions.
