Mathematical and computational tools and concepts form an essential basis for modern evolutionary studies.
The goal of the MCEB conference (at its 6th edition) is to bring together scientists with diverse backgrounds to present recent advances and discuss open problems in the field of mathematical and computational evolutionary biology.

Interdisciplinary Spring School on Plant and Animal Morphogenesis 2014

March 16-24, 2014, Montpellier area, France

The Interdisciplinary Spring School on Plant and Animal Morphogenesis is an international thematic school for Masters and PhD students with Computational, Physics or Biology backgrounds. The program focuses on the molecular, cellular and evolutionary mechanisms that determine form during animal and plant development, and introduces their formalization, modeling and simulation.

Le Workshop pluridisciplinaire SeqBio 2013 se déroulera au Campus CNRS de Montpellier les 25 & 26 novembre 2013.
Il réunit les communautés d’informatique et de bioinformatique travaillant sur les méthodes d’analyses des textes et les biologistes, génomiciens intéressés par la bioinformatique de séquences.

1st International Workshop on Semantics for Biodiversity (S4Biodiv 2013)

May 27, 2013, Montpellier, France

A vibrant community building semantics for biodiversity met on Monday 27th May to discuss what semantics and semantic web can do for science ( 38 participants ). Were presented ontologies on taxonomy and taxon name change tracking, on tree and crop traits, and on insect behavior, aside light weight ontologies for observational data, multifaceted thesaurus, semantic web services pipelines called SADI/Share, Sswap.info.

Mathematical and computational tools and concepts form an essential basis for modern evolutionary studies.
The rise of sound statistical and combinatorial approaches in evolutionary and genome biology has seen considerable improvements of the original ad hoc methods and the ability of the new methods and algorithms to handle ever-larger data sets. Such advances involve increasingly sophisticated mathematical treatment of the problems at hand and the reliance on faster algorithms and computers in order to answer important biological questions.
