This special issue of Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems Series B in Cancer Modeling, Analysis and Control originated as a result of the Casablanca International Workshop on Mathematical Biology, held in Casablanca, Morocco from June 20-24, 2011. This five-day workshop was aimed at: (1) bringing together US, international, and African experts in the field of mathematical biology to exchange ideas, (2) advancing the state of research in the field of mathematical modeling of infectious and in host diseases, and (3) providing a platform for the participants to explore opportunities for collaboration across disciplinary boundaries, as well as across countries and continents. The general themes of the workshop were the modeling and analysis of infectious diseases in Africa such as HIV, tuberculosis, influenza, malaria, cholera, and within-host diseases such as cancer. A particular focus of this workshop was on the analysis and control of cancer models.
