Mathematical models are powerful tools for understanding and informing complex biological phenomena. In recent years, there has been broad interest in applying mathematics to study a variety of biological fields, such as epidemiology and ecology. The relation between these two fields is particularly important since environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and habitat restriction, as well as harvesting, hunting, and the number of predators, affect the spread of disease. Also, the existence of disease affects some of the species vital to the environment. This mini-symposium will highlight the new developments in these areas and bring together researchers who work on various models for biological systems from the perspectives of modeling, analysis, and computation. It will serve as a platform to present recent progress, exchange research ideas, extend academic networks, and seek future collaboration.
