This session is dedicated to review recent advances in mathematical modelling in two related biological areas: developmental biology and tumour growth. Whereas developmental biology has a long history of relying on mathematical ideas going back to the seminal work of Turing on pattern formation in reaction-diffusion systems, mathematical modelling of tumour growth is a relative newcomer. However, recent work claiming that application from ecology and evolutionary biology concepts should greatly improve our understanding of cancer has sparked renewed interest in mathematical modelling of cancer.

The Catalan Mathematical Society invites participants to this first congress of a biannual series focusing on current research topics across several areas of Mathematics.

Plenary talks and thematic sessions have been selected by the Scientific Committee of the SCM. Special thanks are due to the organisers of the thematic sessions and to the local mathematical community as a whole for their support to this congress.
