Got this in the old email tubes (note – I spoke at BaBMA a few years back – great meeting).
The Biology and Mathematics in the Bay Area (BaMBA) Day is an annual meeting aimed at creating a fairly informal atmosphere to explore the role of mathematics in biology. Going beyond traditional applied mathematics, the topics include sophisticated computational methods, biophysical methods, discrete mathematics and topological methods. Our goal is to encourage dialogue between researchers and students from different disciplines in an atmosphere that promotes the open exchange of ideas and viewpoints to discuss the role of mathematics in modern molecular biology. Please join us for a day full of enticing discussions!
BaMBA 9 will be held 9am-6pm on Saturday, November 22nd, in 1002 Geidt Hall on the UC Davis campus. The talks by keynote speakers will be followed by a poster session.
Ileana Streinu, Smith College
Sean Mooney, Buck Institute
Michael Levitt, Stanford
Sharon Aviran, UC Davis
Stephen Kowalczykowski, UC Davis
Participation in BaMBA is free and open to everyone, but registration is required. Attendance is limited to 150, and the registration deadline is Monday November 17th, 2014. Undergraduates, graduates, and post-docs involved in mathematical and computational investigations of biological systems are invited to submit an abstract for a poster presentation. For more information, please visit the BaMBA website at http://bambameeting.org/ .
