The Laboratoire de Biomathématiques et d’Estimations Forestières (LABEF) of the Université d’Abomey-Calavi (UAC) organizes from 22 to 28 january 2018 at Abomey-Calavi, with the support of the International Center for Pure and Applied Mathematics (ICPAM), a workshop titled « African Mathematical Schools »,
THEME : « mathematical modeling for epidemiology, ecology and conservation»
The African Mathematical School of Abomey-Calavi aims to:
- Organize discussions about skills on « population matrix models » and «mixed effects models ».
- Identify some appreciate students and provide them with possible opportunities to make doctorate studies
- Establish collaboration between scientists of Africa, Latin America and Europa about the school themes.
The school will take place through conferences (courses), controlled works, lectures, studies of mini-projects and some tourism.
