The “5th Strathmore International Mathematics Conference (SIMC 2019)” will be held in Strathmore University, Nairobi, Kenya, during the week of August 12 – 16, 2019. The conference will be organized in plenary and parallel sessions of oral presentations. The Conference paper presentation sessions will be preceded by a number of 2-day schools (August 12 and 13) on broad research topics of contemporary interest and relevance.
Theme: “Promoting Challenge-Driven Research in Mathematical Sciences and Building Collaborative Research Networks”
The goal of this conference is to provide mathematics researchers from around the world, working in various mathematical disciplines, to discuss latest developments and share their research results in contemporary areas of mathematics research and applications. This conference also intends to forge new cross-disciplinary interactions among participants and farther existing partnerships among the international mathematics community and in particular, young researchers in Eastern Africa. The conference provides a unique opportunity for in-depth technical discussions and exchange of ideas in mathematical sciences, as well as explores the potential of their applications in natural, biomedical and social sciences, engineering and technology and industry and finance.
- To provide a forum for researchers, educators, students, contributors, users of mathematical knowledge and industries to exchange ideas and communicate and discuss research findings and new advancement in mathematical sciences.
- To explore possible avenues to foster academic and student exchange, as well as scientific activities;
- Identifying future needs and opportunities for mathematical sciences in industry and promote stronger links between mathematics and industry for a mutually beneficial partnership between industry and mathematical scientists.
The SIMC 2019 looks for significant contributions to Mathematics and its applications in theoretical and practical aspects.
Authors may contribute to the conference by submitting articles that illustrate research results, projects, surveying works and industrial experiences that describe significant advances in the following areas, but are not limited to:
Algebra and Applications, Computational Algebra, Analysis, Combinatorics, Geometry and Topology, Number Theory, Differential Equations, Approximation Theory, Coding Theory, Image Processing, Control Theory, Cryptology, Difference and Functional Equations, Discrete Mathematics, Dynamical Systems and Egordic Theory, Fluid Mechanics, Fuzzy Mathematics, Game Theory, Graph Theory, Integral Equations, Mathematical Biology and Mathematical Ecology, Bioinformatics, Mathematical Modelling in Environmental Sciences, Theoretical Computer Science, Data Mining and Soft Computing, Mathematical Economics and Financial Mathematics, Financial Econometrics, Stochastic Modeling, Stochastic Calculus and Applications, Theory and Application of Statistical Linear Models; Bayesian Models and Data Analysis; Biometric Models and Data Analysis, Modeling Climatic Changes; Spatial Analysis; Exploratory Methods and Functional Data Analysis. Mathematics Education.
The conference will be organized in plenary and parallel sessions of oral presentations. The plenary sessions will include keynote papers and invited papers on topics of broad interest and appeal by distinguished researchers in the respective fields. The parallel sessions will include invited and contributed papers in each of the respective areas of focus. On each day of the conference there will be graduate students’ and postdoctoral poster sessions. Each session will be organized by a convenor, or two joint convenors who will be renowned researcher(s) in the respective area of focus. The convenor(s) will have the responsibility of organizing the sessions, inviting the key speakers, and selecting contributed papers and graduate students’ posters. The conference will be crowned on the last day with an open industry session that will include a plenary presentation or public lecture by a leading researcher with experience in application of mathematical sciences to problems in industry and business. The session will be open to participants from industry and the general public. At the end of the public lecture there will be an expert panel to discuss current problems and future directions in mathematics research and applications in Africa.
For those who wish to have their papers published in the Conference Proceedings, their papers will be peer-reviewed and then selected for publication in the Proceedings.
Pre Conference Schools
The Conference paper presentation sessions shall be preceded by a number of 2-day schools on broad research topics of contemporary interest and relevance, chosen from the following research areas: Pure Mathematics and Applications; Applied Mathematics and Applications; Statistical Modeling and Applications; Stochastic Modeling and Applications; and Mathematics Education; Biomathematics; Mathematical Economics and Financial Mathematics. The aim of these schools is to nurture research careers of young mathematicians and to sow the seed for future generation of mathematics researchers in East African region. The participants in the schools will be drawn from mathematicians in the peridoctoral stage, meaning, those who are close to finishing their doctorates or have recently finished. The schools will bring together budding mathematicians with a passion for research and provide them with structured lectures and activities aimed at helping them explore and exchange current trends in mathematics research and to build collaborative networks. Each school will be directed by a senior researcher who is an international leader in the research topic of the school. The participants in the schools will be expected to participate in the conference.
