MiLS meeting on "Information Theory in Life Sciences", Monday 22nd April 2024, University of Nottingham

We are pleased to announce the 17th Mathematics in Life Sciences (MiLS) meeting which will focus on "Information Theory in Life Sciences". Postponed from September 2023, this meeting will now take place on 22nd April 2024 in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham, and will be co-organised by Prof. Jonathan Wattis.

The meeting aims to bring together mathematicians and experimentalists to discuss the use of information theory techniques in life sciences, including Shannon information, entropy and ideas from statistical physics, and is expected to encompass a wide range of applications.

Confirmed speakers include:

Prof. Robert Insall (UCL and University of Glasgow)

Dr. Thomas Ouldridge (Imperial College London)

Dr. Barbara Bravi (Imperial College London)

Dr Cyril Rauch (University of Nottingham)
