Lee Segel Prize for Best Student Paper
To honor the enormous contribution that Lee Segel made to the Bulletin of Mathematical Biology and the field of mathematical biology as a whole, Springer, in partnership with the Society of Mathematical Biology, is funding a series of prizes. Biennial prizes of US $5,000 will be given for the best paper, and US $3,000 for the best student paper, published in the previous two years in the Bulletin of Mathematical Biology. A committee appointed by the SMB Board of Directors, Publications Chair, and Editor-in-Chief of the Bulletin judges and awards prizes. The committee currently consists of Mark Lewis, Daniel Coombs, and Ramit Mehr.
The winning paper is:
Moore, S.M., C.A. Manore, V.A. Bokil, E.T. Borer, P.R. Hosseini. 2011. Spatiotemporal Model of Barley and Cereal Yellow Dwarf Virus Transmission Dynamics with Seasonality and Plant Competition. Bull Math Biol 73:2707–2730.
The speaker will be Carrie A. Manore, Mathematics and Computational Science, Tulane Univ., New Orleans, LA, USA
