The Society for Mathematical Biology Annual Meeting and Conference, July 25-28, 2012

SMB 2012 Minisymposia

MS31: Experimental design for dynamical system models in biology - July 28, 11:40-1:20 p.m.   SESSION K
Organizer: Vanja Dukic (Applied Mathematics, Univ. of Colorado, Boulder, CO, USA)
Presenters: H. T. Banks, David Bortz, Vanja Dukic, Leifur Thorbergsson

Summary. In the mathematical modeling of biological systems, it is often challenging to validate a model. Within the experimental design literature there are criteria which can dictate a sampling strategy to minimize either parameter estimate error or minimize model prediction error. These criteria are directly related to a measure of the statistical complexity of the model. This minisymposium will bring together experts in experimental design and model selection from applied mathematics and statistics for a set of presentations on most recent developments in classic and adaptive experimental design techniques for dynamical system models.
