International Conference MPDE'14

Models in Population Dynamics and Ecology

Università di Torino, Italy

August 25th-29th, 2014

This is the next annual conference in the MPDE series after several very successful previous meetings such as MPDE'10 (Leicester), MATE'11 (Colchester), MPDE'12 (Santa Maria) and MPDE'13 (Osnabrück). MPDE'14 will focus on various aspects of population dynamics, ecology and eco-epidemiology and is expected to explore the processes and mechanisms ranging from the micro-scale of individual movement to the macro-scale of populations and communities, with applications to metapopulations, regional dynamics and geographical invasions. It is also expected to explore similarities between the modelling techniques traditionally applied in ecology and those used in other life sciences with the purpose to enhance interdisciplinary approaches and to stimulate further advances in mathematical ecology and population dynamics.
