1-day workshop - October 01, 2021

This one-day-workshop will be the anticipation of the Bio-TO-Math Conference that will take place next spring, whether allowed by the health emergency scenario. These events will bring to Torino leading scientists from the bio-physical and the mathematical communities, to address groundbreaking researches in biosciences that can be potentially investigated with mathematical models and tools motivated by biological applications.

The one-day-workshop will take place in onsite+online hybrid form. The onsite venue is the Politecnico di Torino. The works of the meeting will be also streamed via Zoom.

Scientific Committee

Marcello Delitala, Politecnico di Torino
