Babies, Bees, and Bieber Fever

Among Topics to be Addressed at International Mathematical Biology Conference

July 23, 2012

KNOXVILLE—Viruses, tumors, bumble bees and even "Bieber Fever" will undergo mathematical analyses at the 2012 annual meeting of the Society for Mathematical Biology, July 25-28, at the Knoxville Convention Center.

About 400 scientists, including undergraduate students, from 23 countries and 35 U.S. states are expected to attend the annual meeting and associated research and educational conference, which is co-hosted by the National Institute for Mathematical and Biological Synthesis (NIMBioS) and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Scheduled talks include the following:

The conference includes talks from six plenary speakers, including Michio Kondoh from Ryukoku University in Japan. Kondoh won the Society's prestigious Akira Okubo Prize last year.

"SMB 2012 provides an excellent opportunity for researchers and educators at all levels of experience to share their enthusiasm for addressing important biological problems through the use of mathematics," said NIMBioS Director Louis Gross.
