Anyone who was interested in the Workshop on Mathematical Trends in Reaction Network Theory last summer in Copenhagen might be interested in this:
• Mathematics in (bio)Chemical Kinetics and Engineering (MaCKiE 2017), Budapest, 25–27 May, 2017.
This conference is planned so that it starts right after another one: the 14th Joint European Thermodynamics Conference will be in Budapest from the 21st to the 25th.
Since its first event in 2002, the MaCKiE workshop is organized in every second year. The previous meetings were held in Ghent (Belgium), Chennai (India), Heidelberg (Germany), and Houston (USA). The meeting aims to bring together scientists interested in the application of advanced mathematical methods to describe kinetic phenomena, especially chemists, mathematicians, physicist, biologists, and engineers. The acronym MaCKiE naturally comes from the title of the conference, but is also part of the German name of Mack the Knife in Brecht and Weill’s Threepenny Opera, Mackie Messer, and is phonetically indistinguishable from “makkie” in Dutch, optimistically meaning “a cinch”.
Conference papers will be published in Reaction Kinetics, Mechanisms and Catalysis in early 2018.
