SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT 
Winter School on Population Dynamics, 10-14 January, 1996

  The winter school on Population Dynamics, which will take place in
the conference centre Woudschoten in the Netherlands (10-14th January,
1996), can, due to space limitations, accomodate only a limited number of
participants.
  We would like to remind prospective participants to fill in the
application form and to return it BEFORE 1 OCTOBER, 1995, to 
Thomas Hantke (thomas at cwi.nl).

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 themes. 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): selection models
* 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.
