A minisymposium on Mathematical and Computational Modeling of Biological
Systems will be held November 6-8, 2003 at Texas Tech University. The objective of the minisymposium is to bring together some of the most distinguished members and outstanding early-career scholars in mathematical sciences and biomedical engineering, who have contributed extensively to the central theme. These scholars will deliver lectures, with the
expectation to provide members of the mathematical and engineering community, an opportunity to learn about new research venues. In addition, the invited speakers will host panel sessions designed to afford the
participants a chance to ask questions and to interact personally with the invited speakers.

The distinguished speakers who have accepted our invitation to deliver
the keynote lectures for this mini-symposium will be:

* Jay Humphrey, Texas A & M University
* James Keener, University of Utah
* Michael Reed, Duke University
* Andrew Sherman, National Institute of Health
* Charles Taylor, Stanford University

The outstanding early-career speakers who have committed to participate include:

* Trachetta Jackson, University of Michigan
* Mette Sofie Olufsen, North Carolina State University

This mini-symposium is highly multi-disciplinary and will provide a forum
for the exposure and exchange of ideas, methods and results in the underlying theme of the conference. The conference program will initiate new collaborations between mathematics and all areas of science, engineering
and science education.

This mini-symposium is organized by Dr. Padmanabhan Seshaiyer from Texas
Tech University. The mini-symposium is primarily sponsored with the generous support from the National Science Foundation, the Whitaker Foundation, Prof. Frits Ruymgaart Paul Whitfield Endowed Horn Professorship
and by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. We are soliciting applications from senior undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral students and early career scientists in applied mathematics and bio-engineering to participate in the workshop. All selected participants will recieve local and travel expenses (including air fare, local room and board). An online application is available on the web site listed below, and applications must be received by
September 10, 2003 for full consideration.
