There has been a confluence of scientific research directions based on and leading toward an evolving view of aging and lifespan as an evolutionary topic.
On the one hand, there are numerous biological and biotechnological programs now aimed at blunting the aging process, based partly on the underlying premise that aging is an artifact of evolution rather than a fundamental limitation imposed by biology. On the other hand, there are theoretical results that support this view from the standpoint of mathematical and statistical simulations and analysis.
This workshop intends to gather workers in the area of mathematical, statistical and theoretical foundations on this topic, as well as those who are at the forefront of researching biological mechanisms.
