Abstract: The movement and dispersal of organisms have long been recognized as key components of ecological interactions and as such, they have figured prominently in mathematical models in ecology. More recently, dispersal has been recognized as an equally important consideration in epidemiology and in environmental science. Recognizing the increasing utility of employing mathematics to understand the role of movement and dispersal in ecology, epidemiology and environmental science, The University of Miami in December 2012 held a workshop entitled ``Everything Disperses to Miami: The Role of Movement and Dispersal in Ecology, Epidemiology and Environmental Science" (EDM).
