The2013 Summer Graduate Workshop on Connecting Biological Data with
Mathematical Model
<http://www.nimbios.org/education/WS_grad2013> will be held June 17-28,
2013, at NIMBioS on the campus of the University of Tennessee,
Knoxville. The workshop is co-sponsored by NIMBioS, MBI and the Centre
for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and Medicine (CAMBAM). The
workshop features instructors from across North America whose research
expertise is mathematical modeling in biological systems using real
data. Some of the techniques to be covered include Maximum likelihood
and Bayesian approaches to inference, parameter estimation, model
identifiability, uncertainty and sensitivity analysis, and data
assimilation. Applications of connecting data to models will come from
epidemiology, ecology (including global change biology), evolution,
microbiology, physiology, pharmacokinetics, and systems biology.

Graduate students from the mathematical, physical and life sciences are
encouraged to apply. There are no fees associated with this workshop and
most meals are included. If needed, the math institutes can provide some
support (transportation, lodging) for Workshop attendees.

*Dates:* June 17-28, 2013

*Location: *NIMBioS at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville
