Biomathematics - Bioinformatics and Applications of Functional Differential Difference Equations Akdeniz University, Antalya, Turkey, July 14 - 19, 1999.

The conference on the Theory of Difference and Differential Equations with Applications to Biology and Medicine aims to stimulate collaboration between mathematicians and bioscientists and to act as a forum for the exchange of recent research results and new perspectives in those fields. In addition, the conference is devoted to a rapidly growing, interdisciplinary domain of science where experimental biology and medicine, biochemistry, functional differential and difference equations, stochastic functional differential equations and stochastic processing, functional analysis, evolution equations, operator theory, computational mathematics, and various fields of technology all come together.

Scientific program The scientific program will include one-hour plenary lectures, half-an-hour lectures and poster contributions. We also plan to publish the Conference Proceedings. The conference will cover the theory of difference and differential equations with applications to related disciplines within Biology and Medicine, including immunology, epidemiology, evolution, population dynamics and ecology, molecular biology, cell signaling, tumor growth and treatment, metabolic modeling, neuromodeling, computational biology, cardiovascular modeling, and biomechanics.
