Mathematical Modelling in Life Science
Yaoundé, September 19-30, 2016
Number of participants: 70 including 21 women
The objective of our school is to introduce participants to the formulation of mathematical and computer models in epidemiology, immunology, ecology and agronomy and the use of tools of dynamical systems and numerical analysis in the analysis of real situations epidemics within a human or animal population of pests of plants and plant population dynamics.

Courses will be delivered in French or English. Thirty participants from the region is expected, in addition to the ten lecturers for
courses or conferences. In addition, participants will present their works. A meeting is scheduled at the end of the second week between professionals from the health and agriculture, guest speakers and participants. This meeting will serve as a platform for professionals in these sectors (health and agriculture) to present the practical problems encountered in connection with the exercise of their profession. A discussion will follow to consider exchange possible collaboration between research teams working in the field of modeling in life science and structures operating in the sectors of health and agriculture.

Second session of a Massive Open Online Course on Protected Areas Management (MOOC-GAP)
This course will help you learn about conservation challenges in Africa and how protected areas can help face them, from local to global level. Management, governance, sustainability etc., all these topics will be explored using best practices from the World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA) and case studies coming from all over the African continent.
