We have been made aware of a convincing email scam that is focusing on our Programme and Workshop participants. Participants may receive an email from a firm called Expo Hotel Services (ehotelservices.org) to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes. This might include a request to provide them with credit card information.
Please note, INI will never ask for your card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store https://onlinesales.admin.cam.ac.uk/.
If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together scientists interested in different areas of complex movement in a biological context, from field research, to data analysis, to theoretical modelling. In particular, the focus will be on complex movement beyond the Markov property, such as memory-dependent animal foraging processes, spatial avoidance due to past deposition of animal scent or resource depletion, and directed motion in neutrophils. Despite its ubiquity, the mathematical difficulty in dealing with history dependence has hampered the study of non-Markov movement processes. Past empirical limitations are also responsible for the lack of a general theory to describe history dependent movement processes, as detection of features that would distinguish between Markov and non-Markov model predictions were not attainable. Currently, movement data may reach unprecedented resolution, and there is a renewed interest in developing non-Markov movement models, exemplified by recent theoretical studies to devise general prescriptions to simulate non-Markov stochastic processes.
A concerted effort of an entire scientific community is necessary to move forward. This workshop will focus on some sub-themes, which include (i) constructing a general theory that extends the links between Fokker-Planck representations and the non-Markov linear Langevin equation to the fully nonlinear case: (ii) laying out mathematical principles to modify a probability description of a non-Markov process in the presence of boundaries, e.g. absorbing or reflecting, both with discrete and continuous (space and time) variables; and (iii) inferring the effects of delayed response in information transmission, as studied in the first theme, on the emergence of collective movement patterns.

INI is a creative collaborative space which is occupied by up to fifty-five mathematical scientists at any one time (and many more when there is a workshop). Some of them may not have met before and others may not realise the relevance of other research to their own work.
INI is especially important as a forum where early-career researchers meet senior colleagues and form networks that last a lifetime.
Here you can learn about all activities past, present and future, watch live seminars and submit your own proposals for research programmes.
Within this section of the website you should find all the information required to arrange and plan your visit to the Institute. If you have any further questions, or are unable to find the information you require, please get in touch with the relevant staff member or our Reception team via our contact pages.
INI and its programme participants produce a range of publications to communicate information about activities and events, publish research outcomes, and document case studies which are written for a non-technical audience. You will find access to them all in this section.
The Isaac Newton Institute aims to maximise the benefit of its scientific programmes to the UK mathematical science community in a variety of ways.
Whether spreading research opportunities through its network of correspondents, offering summer schools to early career researchers, or hosting public-facing lectures through events such as the Cambridge Festival, there is always a great deal of activity to catch up on.
Find out about all of these endeavours in this section of the site.
There are various ways to keep up-to-date with current events and happenings at the Isaac Newton Institute. As detailed via the menu links within this section, our output covers social media streams, news articles, a regular podcast series, an online newsletter, and more detailed documents produced throughout the year.
“A world famous place for research in the mathematical sciences with a reputation for efficient management and a warm welcome for visitors”
The Isaac Newton Institute is a national and international visitor research institute. It runs research programmes on selected themes in mathematics and the mathematical sciences with applications over a wide range of science and technology. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact in research over an extended period.
INI has a vital national role, building on many strengths that already exist in UK universities, aiming to generate a new vitality through stimulating and nurturing research throughout the country.During each scientific programme new collaborations are made and ideas and expertise are exchanged and catalysed through lectures, seminars and informal interaction, which the INI building has been designed specifically to encourage.
For INI’s knowledge exchange arm, please see the Newton Gateway to Mathematics.
The Institute depends upon donations, as well as research grants, to support the world class research undertaken by participants in its programmes.
Fundraising activities are supported by a Development Board comprising leading figures in academia, industry and commerce.
