The BIOMAT Consortium
The BIOMAT Consortium is an international non-profit association of scientific faculty members of universities and research institutions worldwide, their scientific research students as well as other interested scientific practitioners on the areas of Mathematical Biology, Biological Physics and the generic mathematical modelling of biosystems. The fundamental mission of the BIOMAT Consortium is the enhancement of the scientific activity of these areas on developing countries. The Consortium has been responsible for the annual organization of the conferences of the BIOMAT Symposium series, since its inception in the year 2001. These conferences have succeeded on their proposal of assembling together professionals from several fields, from mathematicians and physicists to biologists as well as research physicians and engineers in high level conferences and in an informal atmosphere of continuous scientific sessions. The only link which is supposed to exist among the attendees is the scientific interest on the mathematical and computational modelling of biological phenomena and on biologically-inspired approaches to these interdisciplinary fields.
Peer-review evaluation of submitted works
In order to be considered for presentation in a BIOMAT Symposium, authors must first submit an abstract of their work, which is evaluated by their soundness and adequacy to the conference. Authors with an accepted abstract are then invited to submit a corresponding full paper. These are evaluated by their originality and impact level on the scientific community.
In this first stage, all papers are accepted for presentation in the conference only. In order to publish a paper in a book of the BIOMAT series - World Scientific Co. Pte. Ltd., the presentation should be peer-reviewed by senior members of the Editorial Board and adHoc referees, attending the conference. We have a limited number of pages each year and the BIOMAT series of books, in spite of using the same editorial procedures of the best indexed journals, is not a journal.
The BIOMAT series is indexed at ISI - Web of Science, Scientific Proceedings Data Index, MathSciNet, Zentralblatt für Mathematik, etc. The acceptance level is fixed on 20% of the received works. The books have DOI number links for their front and back matters and an independent DOI number link for each chapter. The BIOMAT Consortium is very proud of the respect that its indexed book series has attained among the scientific community worldwide.
Membership of the BIOMAT Consortium
Becoming a member of the BIOMAT Consortium, gives you the opportunity of receiving a free copy of the BIOMAT book (posting costs should be paid on your own), whose cover price is usually around $160 - $190. In addition, a discount of 50% is applied on the registration fee for participation in the next conference.
The BIOMAT Consortium individual annual fees amount to US$70 for research students and US$160 for faculty members and all other professionals.
The conferences occur on early November of each year. The annual fees and personal data, including present academic status and professional affiliation, if any, should reach the Secretariat of the Consortium before the conference. This offer is valid for the first 100 payments of annual fees, on a first come first served basis. All correspondence should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the BIOMAT Consortium and York University/Université de York, Canada
On February 1st 2013, a Memorandum of Understanding has been signed between the BIOMAT Consortium and the York University. This agreement, valid for three years and renewable for successive periods of three years, will allow to send faculty members, researchers of scientific institutions and other interested practitioners belonging to the Board of Members of the BIOMAT Consortium, to work for a previously fixed period in the York University. For Brazilian candidates, the possibility of getting support from the Science without Borders Program should also be considered. However, there are also good alternative possibilities of working as a collaborator on graduate courses of York University. Some senior expert scientists could also be invited to lecture for some weeks in Brazil and other countries of South America. The BIOMAT Consortium will be pleased to inspect the facilities to be offered to these scientists during their prospective visits. We expect that the guests could do their daily work on the dependencies of the host institution reserved for the BIOMAT Consortium.
