# CEMRACS 2018: Numerical and mathematical modeling for biological and medical applications (First announcement)

The CEMRACS is a scientific event of the SMAI (the french Society of Applied and Industrial Mathematics), that takes place every year at CIRM in Luminy (Marseille, France) during 6 weeks from mid-july. The goal of this event is to bring together scientists from both the academic and industrial communities to work and discuss on focused topics. During the first week, a classical summer school is proposed. It consists of several lectures given by leading scientists and related to the topics of the research projects. The remaining 5 weeks are dedicated to working on research projects, possibly after a morning seminar.

The aim of this CEMRACS is to focus on the mathematical models applied to natural sciences. For several years, application of mathematics to biology or medicine has become a major field of interest. Important progresses have been made in multiscale and multiphysics modeling, for both theoretical and numerical aspects. These simulations can be viewed as an alternative to* in vivo* or *in vitro*experiments and may be referred to as *in silico *experiments. A major advantage of these *in silico e*xperiments is that they do not require invasive procedures and can be easily used to elaborate/test different scenarii.

The contribution of mathematical and numerical models to research and development in the biomedical field can be at several levels. In a first step, this may provide valuable tools to understand / explain the underlying biomedical phenomena or the observations. In a second step, it can also help to make a prediction (for tumor growth, drug efficiency,…). Finally, it can be integrated as a part of the decision process as an optimization tool.

The aim of this CEMRACS is to go further in the interactions between the mathematical community and the biomedical actors: biologists, physicians, biomedical engineers, pharmacologists, … and to promote new collaborations between applied mathematicians and industrial and biomedical researchers.
