Throughout many years mathematical and biological sciences have always benefited from their interplay. Each successive interaction enhances the fields: on one hand describing biological processes brings up new mathematical ideas and on the other hand the mathematical models help to gain deeper insights into biological phenomena.
In this spirit, the goal of this workshop is to highlight the strong connection between mathematics and biology by presenting various mathematical approaches. In particular, the topics will cover a broad variety of biological situations and will mainly focus on PDE and stochastic techniques in use, whose importance in the mathematical biology world increased significantly over the last years.

The Workshop Mathematical Models in Biology: PDE & Stochastic Approaches is organized with partial support of the SFB 65 Project Taming Complexity in Partial Differential Systems and from the Doctoral Program (DK) Dissipation and Dispersion in Nonlinear PDEs (both programs are financed through grants by the Austrian Science Fund - FWF), from the Vienna Center for Partial Differential Equations and from the Vienna School of Mathematics (VSM).
