Highlights of the Year

Benoît Perthame was invited as plenary speaker for the International Congress of Mathematicians ICM 2014 (Seoul, ), that attracted more than 5000 participants. This is the first time that a mathematician working in mathematics applied to biology was invited at ICM, which is the most prestigious conference for mathematicians of all fields. This represents a consecration both for Benoît Perthame's work and for the MAMBA team, and more generally for the whole domain of mathematics applied to biology.

Marie Doumic was a plenary speaker at the ECMTB 2014 (Göteborg, 600 participants).

Dirk Drasdo was invited speaker at the Systems Biology of Human Diseases conference (Harvard University, ).
