Challenge Workshop: Mathematical Modeling of Biomedical Problems

From December 12 to 13, 2019 the Challenge Workshop "Mathematical Modeling of Biomedical Problems" will take place in Erlangen Castle. Experts from universities and industry will present current approaches and mathematical challenges in the field of biomedicine. The goal is to identify current and future areas of need for MSO research, to spur innovation by creating new research collaborations and bridge different fields of application that can be tackled by similar mathematical approaches.

Mathematical modeling and computing in biomedicine is a key ingredient for future developments in the field. Challenges arise from the complexity of the underlying biology and other chemical and physical techniques involved in medical diagnosis and treatment. From a clinical perspective, mathematical models are desired to improve and quantify the understanding and treatment of diseases, while from an industrial perspective they are needed to design and improve devices or drugs. This calls for a diversity of mathematical techniques ranging from differential equations and stochastics to image processing and data analysis, which need to be brought together in order to tackle relevant problems.

The event is organized by the Technical University of Kaiserslautern, the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg (FAU) and the project "Programme-associated Activities", which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The workshop is supported by the Committee for Mathematical Modeling, Simulation and Optimization (KoMSO e.V.).

The registration is open until December 4, 2019. For registration follow the link:

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
