Symposium to Promote Research Collaboration in Mathematical Modelling

Muscat, The third edition of Cambridge-SQU

Symposium (CAMSQU2019) on Mathematical Modelling, commenced

at Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) today under the patronage of Prof.

Amer Ali al-Rawas, SQU Deputy Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs

and Community Service.

The purpose of the Cambridge University-SQU symposium is to

promote research in various aspects of mathematics. The symposium is

an expanded version of Cambridge-SQU workshops held in 2011 and

2017, organized by the Department of Mathematics at SQU as part of

its ongoing efforts to promote cooperation between SQU and

prominent universities worldwide.

The program for the third symposium includes topics in

mathematical modelling in areas spanning the usual physical

applications, porous media, epidemiology, nano-fluids, desalination

and robotics, a variety that displays the modern trend in mathematics

research. The symposium features lectures by invited distinguished

scientists and provides the opportunity for researchers to present their

latest work.

Prof. Salma al-Kindy, Dean of the College of Science, said that

the third symposium on Mathematical Modelling would be a platform to

gather and disseminate the latest knowledge in the field. It would

provide a forum for those faculty members in SQU who are engaged in

research in areas related to mathematical modelling, to share

knowledge and discuss ideas about future research plans with a view

to finding common interest, and contribute to further developments.

This, she said, would lead to agreement of joint research projects.

Dr. Nasser al-Salti, member of the Organizing Committee of the

Symposium said that the three-day symposium features 34 abstracts in

8 sessions. It includes eight keynote talks, 6 by international speakers

and 2 by local speakers.
