A winter school on Population Dynamics will take place in the
conference centre Woudschoten in the Netherlands, from 10-14th
January, 1996. The winter school is part of the NWO (Netherlands
Organisation for Scientific Research) priority program on "Nonlinear
Systems" which has "Population Biology and Epidemiology" as one of its

Five experts have been invited to give each five tutorial/introductory
lectures on different areas of population biology:

* Bryan Grenfell (University of Cambridge):  epidemiology
* Andre de Roos (University of Amsterdam):   structured populations
* Karl Hadeler (University of Tuebingen):    deterministic tools
* Franjo Weissing (University of Groningen): population genetics
* Valerie Isham (University College London): stochastic tools

The aim is to give (beginning) PhD- students in population biology a
good understanding of the way mathematics is applied to study problems
in their field as well as a thorough background in relevant
deterministic and stochastic mathematical techniques. 

The emphasis of this winter school is on teaching.  Participants can
introduce their interest and work in five-minute presentations that
can serve as the starting point of further exchange and discussion.

In order to facilitate the planning we ask prospective participants to
fill in this form and return it as soon as possible (and in any case
before 1 October, 1995) to Thomas Hantke (thomas at
