Abstract: Moving interface and free boundary problems arise in the modelling of a variety of biological phenomena such as tumor growth, cell motility, population dynamics and pattern formation. The models involve systems of nonlinear PDE and the analysis of such models is at the forefront of current research. Often analytical solutions are unavailable and state-of-the-art numerical methods are required for the simulation of the model equations.

The goal of this mini-symposium is to foster the exchange of ideas by bringing together analysts, modellers and experts in scientific computing who share an interest in biological free boundary problems.
