Annual Center Symposium
Community-initiated Topical Workshops
The Center solicits proposals from the community to support community-initiated workshops each year.
- 2020 Workshop on Cell Fate – May 29 – 31, 2020
- Mathematical Challenges in Biological Big Data – March 16 – 17, 2020
- Algorithms and Models for Single-Cell Genomics – June 6 – 7, 2019
- Mechanobiology Symposium: The Mechanome in Action – July 26 – 27, 2018
Convergence Accelerator Team (CAT)
The center invites proposals for Convergence Accelerator Teams, a group of 3-6 researchers who will visit the Center at UC Irvine for a session lasting 3-5 days. The two-page proposals should introduce a specific research question, in the area of cell behavior across scales, and explains why bringing a team together at this time will have significant impact on the success of the project. This program is to accelerate an existing project idea, rather than to seed a new idea. Proposals may be submitted any time throughout the year. The winning teams will receive support for travel and lodging in Irvine. The Center will facilitate the focused research group activities with office space and access to a conference room and other Center facilities. Winning proposals are selected for scientific merit, the likelihood that this session will result in tangible outcome, e.g., a grant proposal, a paper, or a software repository, and that this outcome is accelerated by the session (e.g., because the session brings together researchers from geographically distant institutions). A one-page summary of the team’s works at the Center will be required at the end of the team’s visit. Teams will be invited to present their research at the following year’s Annual Center Symposium. For questions and submission, please email us.
BioChallenge SoCal Day
An opportunity for junior researchers to work together and present new ideas on how “Biology Challenges Mathematics.”
