NEW! Programme is available. The Conference starts on 28 February with a welcome drink and dinner; it finishes on 4 March with the breakfast.
The current trend to a global economy and a knowledge society has placed information and innovation technologies, at the forefront. In almost all industries Mathematics opens the way to virtual experiments, the simulation of multiple scenarios for a given phenomenon and its control and optimization. Moreover, besides its role in science and engineering, the domains of application of mathematics include social, environmental, and economic phenomena. This connection is especially strong in areas where innovation is contributing to the well being of society, such as health, security, communications, and environmental stewardship.
