Welcome to BIOMATH 2013

The annual international conference on Mathematical Methods and Models in Biosciences (BIOMATH) will take place from 16 June to 21 June 2013 at the campus of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in Sofia, Bulgaria. The conference is devoted to recent research in life sciences based on applications of mathematics as well as mathematics applied to or motivated by biological studies. It is a multidisciplinary meeting forum for researchers who develop and apply mathematical and computational tools to the study of phenomena in the broad fields of biology, ecology, medicine, biotechnology, bioengineering, environmental science, etc.

Contributed talks in any of these fields are invited for presentation at the conference. Participants need to submit a one-page abstract indicating clearly the significance of the reported results for the advancement of knowledge in bioscience and/or biotechnology. Proceeding of the conference will be published in volume 2 (2013) of the journal BIOMATH. Selected presentations will also be published in special issues of other science journals.

The conference continues a tradition of scientific meetings on Biomathematics held in Sofia since 1995 (see BIOMATH FORUM). It is supported by several research units of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (such as the Institutes of Mathematics and Informatics, Information and Communication Technologies, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Chemical Engineering, Biophysics and Biomedical Engineering, Mechanics, Neurobiology, Biodiversity and Ecosystem Research, etc.) and several Universities (Sofia University "Kl. Ohridski", Plovdiv University "Paisii Hilendarski", South-West University "N. Rilski"), as well as the Union of the Bulgarian Mathematicians. The conference is also supported by the European Society for Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ESMTB).

Special sessions on "Modeling under Uncertainty" (dedicated to Svetoslav Markov's 70th anniversary) and "Modelling in Microbiology" are envisaged.

Conference chairman: Eugene Nickolov, Chief Scientific Secretary of BAS and Director of the National Laboratory of Computer Virology

Program committee chairman: Blagovest Sendov, Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, BAS
Vice-chairman: Petar Kenderov, Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, BAS

Contacts: Roumen Anguelov (University of Pretoria) and Svetoslav Markov (Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, BAS). E-mail addresses:,

BIOMATH School for Young Scientists
The school comprises plenary lectures and sessions for contributed talks. The lectures at the school are of more introductory nature giving foundations and insight into the respective topic rather then focusing on new results and are presented by some of the keynote speakers of the conference. A central event for the school is the Hot Topics Workshop.

School Coordinators:
Svetoslav Markov (Bulgarian Academy of Sciences),
Dimitar Vassilev (Agrobioinstitute, Sofia),
Ivan Ivanov (Texas A&M University),
Roumen Anguelov (University of Pretoria),
