The international conference on Theory and Mathematics in Biology and Medicine, to be organised in Amsterdam June 29-July 3, 1999 has as its goal to stimulate interdisciplinary collaboration between mathematicians and the bioscientists and to act as the main forum for the exchange of recent research results and new research perspectives to the widest possible community in theoretical biology and medicine in Europe and beyond.
This is the 4th of the official congresses, taking place every 3 years under the auspices of the European Society for Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ESMTB). The meeting is unique in that it will also be the annual conference of the Society for Mathematical Biology (SMB, North America) for 1999.
The conference will be organised by the Netherlands Society for Theoretical Biology, the oldest society for theoretical biology in the world. Through these links, this will be the first World Congress devoted to one of the fastest growing domains in science where experimental biology and medicine, biochemistry, mathematics, computational science, physics and various fields of technology come together to attack many problems of great relevance to society.
