Where math, biology and the bay area meet
A quick posting here on a meeting coming up in the Bay Area. I went and talked at it last year and it was quite rewarding.
The Biology and Mathematics in the Bay Area (BaMBA) meeting is a forum for discussions of concepts, issues, and methods by leading researchers in the applications of mathematics, statistics, and computer science in modern biology.
The goal of the meeting is to encourage dialog between researchers and students from different disciplines in an atmosphere intended to promote the exchange of ideas and viewpoints. BaMBA is a one-day annual event that takes place in the San Francisco Bay Area. The first meeting was hosted by San Francisco State University, the second by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute and BaMBA III will take place at San Jose State University on November 10, 2007.
Attendance is open to everyone but we expect the majority of the participants from the Bay Area universities (Stanford University, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, UC San Francisco, San Jose State University, San Francisco State University, University of Santa Clara, and etc). In 2006, BaMBA II attracted around 120 participants.
Mark your calendars:
Saturday, November 10,
from 9 to 5pm.
Eng 189 (San Jose State University)
