Midwest Mathematical Biology Conference


In light of the coronavirus-related recommendations for reducing travel and the newly imposed institutional travel restrictions on faculty members, we have decided to cancel the Midwest Mathematical Biology Conference (MMBC-2020).

We hope that we will see you at another conference soon. Stay healthy.

May 16–17, 2020
Illinois State University

The Midwest Mathematical Biology Conference (MMBC) will highlight current and future research trends in mathematical biology.

Faculty, students and scientists are invited to engage in collaborative discussions on their research and curriculum endeavors.

MMBC features

  • A diverse array of presentations (ranging from theoretical ecology and epidemiology to computational neuroscience)
  • A poster session
  • Networking opportunities & stimulating discussions

As the institutional headquarters of the Intercollegiate Biomathematics Alliance (IBA), Illinois State University is proud to host the MMBC. The IBA has been sponsoring many exciting activities in mathematical biology: BEER Symposium, CURE workshop, MMBC, research journals, and CLOUD computing to list only few.

The MMBC is fully sponsored this year by the IBA, a consortium created to promote research and education in biomathematics. Along with the IBA, the MMBC strives to bring together institutions both academic and non-academic to form a collaborative community in the pursuit of advancing biomathematics, ecology, and related areas for the researchers, educators of the mathematical and biological sciences, and active scholars. In doing so, we provide a wide range of expertise, resources, and opportunities that are only available when we work together as a community.


Illinois State University is located in Normal, Illinois, a part of the Bloomington-Normal twin cities.

The Bloomington-Normal area is a vibrant community, home to two universities on the same street. The people exemplify the values of the Midwest and our remarkable quality of life. Our location in the heart of Illinois is at the intersections of Interstates 39, 55, and 74, making it within a two-hour drive of Chicago, St. Louis, and Indianapolis. We hope you enjoy your visit, and we are proud of our Midwestern hospitality.
