BIOMATH 2023 International Conference and School for Young Scientists: A Personal View
An average person, if asked on the street about the subject of biomathematics, might look a little bewildered: many people, while thinking about biology, in fact think about the respective school subject and just cannot phatom the use of mathematics there. However, even common flowers such as yellow chamomiles or sunflowers show in their middles arrangements described by the Fibonacci numbers, a fact noticed and used since middle ages. That is, studies in mathematical/theoretical biology, or biomathematics, actually need to cover all of biology and, additionally, such fields of mathematics as stochastics, operations research, and computer science, which enables researchers, for example, to shorten experiments' times from decades to mere minutes with the help of appropriate mathematical models implemented on computers. To this end, scientists in many disciplines need to work together in order to create realistic simulations. The series of annual BIOMATH conferences, held regularly since 1995, helps along this way and connects scientists applying "mathematical and computational tools to the study of phenomena in the broad fields of biology, ecology, medicine, biophysics, biochemistry, pharmacokinetics, chemoinformatics, biotechnology, bioengineering, environmental science" from around the world.
