Biological Evolution Across Scales: Mathematical modelling and statistical inference

A 5-day interdisciplinary workshop addressing mathematical modelling, statistical inference and computational approaches in biological evolution. We aim to provide a collaborative environment and to foster informal discussions and dialogue between different communities.

The program will include four thematic blocks: Probabilistic modelsStructures and interactionsInference, and Sequence data. Each block will include one keynote talk and invited talks, and junior researchers will be given ample space in the program.
