Programme - MiLS meeting: "New developments in pattern formation in biological systems"

We are pleased to announce the programme for the twelfth Mathematics in Life Sciences (MiLS) meeting.

The meeting will focus on "New developments in pattern formation in biological systems" and will take place on the 14-15th June 2022 from 13:30 (14th June) to 14:00pm (15th June) in the Forum, at the University of Exeter (Streatham Campus). The Forum is building number 3 on this map. Directions to Streatham Campus (including bus routes and flight connections) can be found here. Limited parking is available on campus in Car Park C (Visitor Car Park) or on Prince of Wales Road opposite buildings 6 and 7.

Attendance to the meeting is free of charge, but we kindly ask you to register your intention to attend by sending an email to Kyle Wedgwood.

We are planning to have a poster session on 14th June. If you are interested in presenting a poster, please let us know when emailing to register.

We look forward to welcoming you to Exeter.
