The 1-day Workshop "PDE models for cancer invasion" will take place at
Mathematical Sciences Research Centre, School of Mathematics and Physics, Queen’s University Belfast
in room TBA
on Friday 6 December 2019.
Aims and Scope
Cancer cell invasion of tissue is an essential stage in the development and expansion of tumours and their metastases. Deduction of mathematical models describing this multifaceted process in terms of PDEs and their subsequent analysis and simulations can contribute to a better understanding of the involved biological phenomena and enable predictions about the development and the extent of a tumour. A realistic mathematical modelling of migration of living cancer cells is much more involved than, e.g., that of physical particles. It calls for new classes of models and, as a result, for new approaches in the modelling, analysis, and numerical simulations.
This workshop aims to present recent developments in this area.

Travel to Belfast
There is helpful information on the QUB travel web page. Flying to Dublin is sometimes easier (and cheaper) than flying to Belfast. There are regular bus connections from Dublin Airport to Belfast and back (travel time around two hours; check for example Aircoach or Translink buses).
Participants are required to make their own arrangements.
