Welcome to BaMBA 8

A day of lectures and collaboration with people in the mathematical and life sciences.

The Biology and Mathematics in the Bay Area (BaMBA) meeting provides a forum for discussion of concepts, issues, and methods associated with the applications of mathematics, statistics, and computer science in modern biology.

Held in the San Francisco Bay Area, the annual one-day meeting goes beyond traditional applied mathematics—it includes algebraic, topological, statistical, and computational methods—to encourage dialogue between researchers and students from different disciplines in an atmosphere that promotes the open exchange of ideas and viewpoints.

This year’s meeting is hosted by the University of California, Berkeley and will be held 9AM to 6PM Saturday, November 3, 2012 in room 2040 of the Valley Life Sciences Building.

Participation in BaMBA is free and open to everyone, but registration is required. The registration deadline is Tuesday, October 30, 2012. Attendance is limited to 150. A poster session will follow the keynote talks. Undergraduates, graduates, and postdocs involved in mathematical and computational investigations of biological systems are invited to submit an abstract for a poster presentation.
