The title of the first plenary talk was The Legacy of Rudolph Kalman. He started from the original work of Rudolph Kalman, which was the first paper to develop a systematic, principled approach to the use of data to improve the predictive capability of the mathematical models humans have developed to understand the world around us, and also presented developments that have stemmed from it, revolutionizing a variety of scientific fields.
The title of the second plenary talk was Heterogeneity in Acute Leukemias and its Clinical Relevance: Insights from Mathematical Modelling. Professor Marciniak-Czochra highlited in her talk the significants of a mathematical approach to understand dynamics of acute leukemias which are among most frequent hematopoietic malignancies.
The Conference Gala Dinner was on Europa boat in the evening. During the gala dinner honorary memberships were awarded to Professor Hilary Ockendon, from University of Oxford and Professor István Faragó, from Eötvös Loránd University.
