Workshop: Mathematical models for biological multi-scale systems Workshop: Mathematical models for biological multi-scale systems

September 12 to 14, 2022, at Weierstrass Institute Berlin


The workshop MathBio22 - Mathematical models for biological multiscale systems discusses and identifies mathematical methods that bridge the gap in scale and complexity between microscopic descriptions of biological and biophysical systems with corresponding PDE descriptions. The focus is on the multi-scale nature innate to biological processes connecting interacting biomolecules with complex systems such as cells, tissue, and organs to elucidate macroscopic phenomena, e.g.,

The corresponding model hierarchies require innovative and structure-preserving numerical methods, novel simulation techniques, and new analytical tools for the resulting nonlinear PDE systems. The latter concerns in particular questions of well-posedness, long-term behavior, qualitative properties of solutions, and coupling to microscopic, stochastic, or agent-based models. Variational and energy- or entropy-based methods are of particular interest.

Invited speakers


Wearing an FFP2 mask during the event is mandatory, except for the speaker and during the catering.

We will provide you with FFP2 masks and corona self-tests every morning. We take it for granted that all participants behave responsible in this matter. If you prefer to do it in a medical center, these are the closest centers to the institute and the hotel. Please contact us if you need any assistance:

The corona measures taken by us are in accordance with the currently valid regulations of the Senate of Berlin. We assume no liability for a possible corona infection that coincides with the visit of our event.

Places to have lunch

Here are some places to have lunch, most of which are in close vicinity to WIAS:


The workshop will take place in a hybrid form. There will be an upper bound for the number of on-site participants to comply with the local Corona rules.
