4th Australian Postgraduate Workshop on Stochastic Processes and Modelling
10-13 February 2008, University of Adelaide, South Australia

Uni Adelaide logo The APWSPM is a workshop organised by postgraduate students for postgraduate students. It provides an invaluable opportunity for students researching in the area to present work at a conference. Additionally, it will allow students to develop contacts with industry, and discuss their work with current and future academics. Areas involving stochastic processes and modelling include (but are by no means limited to):
Queuing theory, Economic game theory, Financial, Telecommunication and Ecological systems modelling.

Plenary speakers:
Deadlines for talks/posters: 18 January 2008;   registration: 18 January 2008.

AMSI Logo - Mathematical Evolutionary Biology
Adelaide Conference on Mathematical Evolutionary Biology 2008
25-30 March 2008; Blanche Cave, Naracoorte Caves National Park, South Australia,
University of Adelaide Logo
This 5 day meeting is designed to bring together mathematicians and biologists from Australia and internationally, in an informal collaborative atmosphere limited to just 50 places. The meeting is closely modelled on the very successful Phylogenetics meeting series held annually in New Zealand.
We are particularly interested in talks that discuss work in progress and present current biological problems with the aim of developing new collaborative research projects and areas. Four of the leading members of the New Zealand group will help lead and direct the Naracoorte meeting, and facilitate communication between the mathematical and biological fields - identifying key conceptual and terminology differences, and over-coming the domain barriers which currently prevent interaction of these groups within Australia.

Key topic areas will include:
phylogenetics, evolutionary rates and dates, coalescent models, population genetics, phylogenetic networks, evolutionary theory/models, search algorithms.
Organisers: Prof J.P. Denier
Contact: Maria Lekis (maria.lekis@adelaide.edu.au)
