Workshop "Evolution of interacting populations"
Hyejin Park und Yuriy Pichugin
is driven by individual birth and death. These microscopic processes
drive the changes in the macroscopic population quantities. However,
microscopic processes are not determined by traits of the single
individual but rather are determined by interactions between
individuals. Hence, studying interactions is crucial to understand the
evolution of population properties. Theoretical models increasingly take
into account the importance of ecological factors on evolution. In
parallel, many experimental results have shown that ecological dynamics
affects evolutionary dynamics. Collectively, these findings have shed
new light on the ecology and evolution of various populations, including
microbiomes, cancer cells, and multicellular organisms. In this
workshop, we assemble scientists studying evolving ecological systems
from mathematics and physics perspective to discuss the directions that
evolution can take and how to model such systems.
Our workshop is composed of two parts. During
the first two days, all speakers give presentations. On the last day,
the workshop is concluded with a discussion.
Confirmed invited speakers are:

Registration an submission of abstracts is open until April 30, 2019.
