Camp Seminars
This seminar series is intended to reflect the research interests of the applied mathematics groups with the CRM, namely Industrial Mathematics,  Complex Systems, Computational and Mathematical Biology and Computational Neuroscience. For further details on the groups (click here).
Given the diverse nature of the groups, seminars can cover a variety of research topics and will provide a forum for the presentation of results, not only by established researchers but also post-docs and PhD students.
For further information or to offer a seminar feel free to contact organizers Victor Navas ( or any of the heads of groups, Tim Myers (, Alvaro Corral (, Tomas Alarcon ( and Alexander Roxin (
This seminar series has evolved from the previous Industrial Mathematics and subsequently Industrial and Biological Maths series. A list of past talks may be found at the bottom of the page
