September 5-9, 2003. Alcalá de Henares (Madrid), Spain. Second Announcement. Call for Papers.
Mathematical Ecology originated in the work of Vito Volterra, although some would date its origins even earlier with Fibonacci's counts. Nowadays it has developed into a vast segment of ecology and has considerably broadened its scope, using mathematical techniques as varied as fractals or stochastic differential equations. It has also evolved towards computer implementation, which is now growing as a separate body but which we believe should still attract the interest of mathematicians. The conference will feature recent advances in mathematical ecology, using new but also classical approaches, in a variety of topics including (but not limited to) the following: population ecology, behavioral ecology, ecotoxicology, evolutionary dynamics, management of living resources, population grouping, spatial aspects of ecology, stochastic models in ecology, individual based models, multiple scaling, etc.. Proposals for organizing sessions on these topics or other related ones are encouraged.
The 2nd AICME is a follow-up of the 1st one, which was held in September 1998 in Alcalá de Henares (http://www2.uah.es/matema/Aicme/aicme.htm); attended by more than 200 participants, it gave rise to special issues in four journals (Ecological Modelling, Mathematical Biosciences, Natural Resource Modeling and Nonlinear Analysis R.W.A.) (http://www2.uah.es/matema/Aicme/inst_proceedings.htm) .
