Training session: Mathematical Modeling in Ecology and Evolution

BIOS2 presents a training session about:

Mathematical Modeling in Ecology and Evolution with Mathematica and Maxima.

This online training will be led by Dr. Sarah P. Otto (UBC) and held in two parts : January 14 and January 16, 2020, from 10 to 12:30 PST / 1 to 3:30 EST.

This workshop will introduce participants to the logic behind modeling in biology, focusing on developing equations, finding equilibria, analyzing stability , and running simulations.  Techniques will be illustrated with the software tools, Mathematica and Maxima.

Call for proposals : BIOS² – CIEE synthesis group

Applications due: January 8, 2020.

We invite experienced biodiversity researchers from both academic (universities) and non-academic organizations (e.g. government departments, non-profit organizations, Indigenous organizations, community groups, industry) to submit proposals for a one week working group focused on a question in biodiversity science.

Training session : Intellectual property and open science

BIOS2 presents a training session about:

Intellectual property issues in the context of open and collaborative science

To be held on December 13, 2019, from 1 to 4 PM (local time) at UQAM, Montreal, Room SH-2540 (Sherbrooke Hall).

The training session will be led by Eve-Lyne Comtois-Dinel, a research scientist and PhD candidate in sociology at UQAM, affiliated with TÉLUQ. Eve-Lyne is also research professional at CIRANO.
