Pre-registration deadline: January 20
Scope: Mathematical and computational tools and concepts form an essential
basis for modern evolutionary studies. The goal of the MCEB conference (at
its 5th edition) is to bring together scientists with diverse backgrounds
to present recent advances and discuss open problems in the field of
mathematical and computational evolutionary biology. This year a special
focus will be given to the applications to health, for example with
regard to human and cancer genomics, genetic diseases and virus epidemics.
General concepts, models, methods and algorithms will also be presented
and discussed, just as during the previous conference editions.
Where and when: Hameau de l’Etoile (http://www.hameaudeletoile.com/)
in the Montpellier region, South of France, 27-31 May 2013.
