Lake Como School of Advanced Studies in Mathematical Models for Bio-Medical Sciences

Dear All,

We would like to draw your attention to the Lake Como School of Advanced Studies in Mathematical Models for Bio-Medical Sciences  to be held from June 29 – July 3, 2020 at Villa del Grumello in Como.

The event is aimed at a broad audience of young researchers in mathematical modeling and analysis in applied sciences, particularly focusing on PhD students and postdocs. The summer school will consist of four main courses. The main courses will be given by:
Helen Byrne (Oxford University) – Approaches to modelling the growth and response to treatment of solid tumours
José Antonio Carrillo (Imperial College, London) – Cell-cell Adhesion micro-and macroscopic models via Aggregation-Diffusion systems
Harald Garcke (University of Regensburg) – Phase field approaches for tumour growth
John Lowengrub (University of California, Irvine) – Multiscale models of complex biological systems: Growth, patterning and morphogenesis

A limited number of short talks and posters will be scheduled. Interested candidates should apply for that during the registration. 
A limited amount of financial support for accommodation is available. Moreover, we offer to waive registration fee for a limited number of participants. 

For application for financial support, a letter of motivation and a CV should be submitted along with the registration. 

The deadline for application for financial support is March 31, 2020. The chosen participants will be notified by April 15, 2020.

The registration and payment deadline is June 15, 2020.

Detailed information on the summer school and the registration can be found at

We hope for a widespread participation in our summer school!

With best regards,
The Organizers
