ReaDiLab Conference

"Mathematical modeling and analysis in biological and chemical systems"

Orsay & IHES (France), September 3--5, 2007.


In the framework of the International Associated Laboratory "Reaction-Diffusion Laboratory" (ReaDiLab) associating Japanese and French experts of different aspects reaction-diffusion problems in nonlinear systems, a conference is organized at the University of Paris-Sud XI (France) in Orsay, September 3 to 5, 2007. The conference will aim at promoting discussions between participants from mathematics, biology, physics and chemistry specialized in the mathematical modeling and analysis of phenomena arising in biological and chemical systems. Poster of the conference - Program of the conference.

Scientific committee: J. Demongeot (TIMC, Grenoble), D. Hilhorst (University of Paris-Sud XI, Orsay), M. Mimura (Meiji university, Tokyo), H. Matano (University of Tokyo).

Organizing committee: D. Hilhorst, F. Issard-Roch, S. Martin.
