Special Sessions and Minisymposia at AMMCS-2011

The conference has a series of special sessions and minisymposia, each devoted to a single topic. These special sessions and minisymposia are run over a full range of topics of the conference, including
  • Mathematics and Computation in Biological Sciences and Medicine.
  • Partial Differential and Integral Equations in Mathematical Modeling.
  • Applications of Dynamical Systems and Differential Equations.
  • Computational Physics and Chemistry.
  • Computational Algebra, Combinatorics and Optimization.
  • Mathematical Models in Social Sciences.
  • Computational Mechanics and Engineering.
  • Financial Mathematics and Computation.
  • Statistical Modelling.
  • Mathematical Modelling in Environmental Sciences.
