This workshop brought together experts in modeling and analysis of organising principles of multiscale biological systems such as cell assemblies, tissues and populations. We focused on questions arising in systems biology and medicine which are related to emergence, function and control of spatial and inter-individual heterogeneity in population dynamics. There were three main areas represented of differential equation models in mathematical biology. The first area involved the mathematical description of structured populations. The second area concerned invasion, pattern formation and collective dynamics. The third area treated the evolution and adaptation of populations, following the Darwinian paradigm. These problems led to differential equations, which frequently are non-trivial extensions of classical problems. The examples included but were not limited to transport-type equations with nonlocal boundary conditions, mixed ODE-reaction-diffusion models, nonlocal diffusion and cross-diffusion problems or kinetic equations.
