SIAM Presents ... Featured Lectures from our Archives
Most of the Invited Lectures, the minitutorials and selected minisymposia from the 2012 SIAM Conference on the Life Sciences have been captured and are available as slides with synchronized audio. In addition there are PDFs of the slides available for printing. View presentation slides with synchronized audio.


A Facebook link to RSVP to the conference, connect with other attendees and find roommates will be posted here in May 2012.

If you are tweeting about the conference, please use the designated hashtag to enable other attendees to keep up with the Twitter conversation and to allow better archiving of our conference discussions.  The hashtag for this meeting is #SIAMLS12.

The life sciences have become increasingly quantitative as new technologies facilitate collection and analysis of vast amounts of data ranging from complete genomic sequences of organisms to satellite imagery of forest landscapes on continental scales. As a consequence, mathematics and computational science have become crucial technologies for the study of complex models of biological processes.

The SIAM Activity Group on Life Sciences brings together researchers who seek to develop and apply mathematical and computational methods in all areas of the life sciences. This conference of the activity group will provide a cross-disciplinary forum for catalyzing mathematical research relevant to the life sciences. It will facilitate rapid diffusion of new mathematical and computational methods in the life sciences, and may stimulate more researchers to work in these important areas. Mathematicians, life scientists, computational biologists, bioengineers and others interested in mathematical and computational analysis of biological systems are encouraged to attend.

SIAM and the Conference Organizing Committee wish to extend their thanks and appreciation to the U.S. National Science Foundation for its support of this conference.
