Pattern Formation: The inspiration of Alan Turing

14th March 2012 to 16th March 2012

Organisers: Bernold Fiedler (Freie Universität Berlin), Benedikt Löwe (Amsterdam) and Philip Maini (Oxford)

Workshop Theme

To celebrate the centenary of Alan Turing's birth and his seminal work in the mathematical modelling of biological pattern formation, this workshop will aim to show how mathematical modelling of pattern formation has led to (i) significant advances in the understanding of certain aspects of biology and chemistry, (ii) new mathematical and computational challenges. It will bring together researchers ranging from those who do experiments to demonstrate pattern formation, to those who develop mathematical and computational techniques to analyse proposed models. The common theme being the emergence of pattern and form. The format will consist of a number of keynote lectures, given by experts in the field, and a series of shorter contributed talks.

Due to space constraints at St. John's College, there will be a limited number of slots for participants. An online registration procedure is availible and we will notify the participants in December 2011.
