Organizer: Dr. Manoj Kumar, Associate Professor, Department of Mathematics, Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology Allahabad-India

E-mail: manoj@mnnit.ac.in

Many problems in science and engineering are reduced to a set of boundary value problems through a process of mathematical modeling such as problems in physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics etc. Sometimes it is possible to find an exact solution of a boundary value problem as a combination of elementary functions or as a trigonometric functions or power series. However, this classical mathematical approach for solving boundary value problems only works on a relatively small class of problems. In more realistic models, solutions of boundary value problems cannot be found explicitly in terms of known functions, and the alternative is to determine an approximate solution for given data through numerical computations. Due to this reason, different numerical methods have been developed in the literature for the solution of boundary value problems that includes Finite difference method, Finite element method, Finite volume method, Boundary element method and Spline methods etc. This mini-symposium aims, to present the new development of computational methods for solving boundary value problems.

Organizer: Prof. Oldrich Zmeskal, Brno University of Technology, Faculty of Chemistry, Purkynova 118, CZ‐612 00 Brno, Czech Republic

E-mail: zmeskal@fch.vutbr.cz

Transport and accumulation of heat, moisture, chemical substances, and momentum are phenomena which affect the building materials and structures over their whole lifetime period. Their satisfactory description requires primarily a choice of proper physical and mathematical models because the transport mechanisms are coupled.  The computational implementation of mathematical models is another essential factor involving an application of appropriate methods of numerical solution. The computer simulation tools cannot be utilized properly without knowledge of a variety of transport and storage material parameters, which have to be determined experimentally in a wide range of field quantities, such as temperature, moisture content, and concentration of a particular chemical compound. The applied models are also supposed to be verified using critical experiments, in order to assess their overall quality.
 
Therefore, in practical applications the computational modeling and experimental assessment of transport processes cannot be separated without a risk of significant departure from the physical reality.
 
The symposium brings together physicists, chemists, mathematicians, and engineers working in the field of transport processes in building materials. The main topics include but are not limited to:
 
  • Theoretical models of transport phenomena
  • Computer simulation tools

E-mail: m.noori@kiau.ac.ir; dr.mostafanouri@gmail.com

Many problems have their mathematical representation in terms of   integral equations or they includes random factors. The modeling of these systems by integral and integro-differential  and stochastic integral equations usually requires that the parameters involved not be completely known. Such models often originate from problems in physics or economics where we have insufficient information on parameter values. A common way of dealing with this situation has been to replace the true values of these parameters by some kind of numerical methods and hope that the corresponding system will give a good approximation to the original one. Also, since some when obtaining of exact solution of these equations are impossible, numerical methods are used to obtain approximate solutions.  
 
In this Symposium we present improved numerical methods for the approximation of these equations that has become a field of increasing interest.

The fractional variational problems (FVPs) is a new interesting area in optimization problems. FVPs is a problem in which either the objective functional or the constraints, or both, contain at least one fractional derivative term. A FVPs can be defined with respect to different definitions of fractional derivatives but the most important types are Riemann-Liouville, Caputo and Rieaz-Caputo derivatives. 
 
So far, many researchers have studied the fractional variational problems and discussed the different types of problems. To obtain the necessary optimality conditions for FVPs is a one of the topics that interested for researchers.

E-mail: Submission to: skala@kiv.zcu.cz  subject: ICNAAM 2016

Standard computational methods across many application fields require tessellation in 2D or 3D using triangular or tetrahedral meshes. Tessellation itself is computationally expensive especially in higher dimensions and result of computation is again discrete and physical phenomena are not smoothly interpolated. Meshless methods are scalable for higher dimensions and offer smooth final representation. Meshless methods lead to a solution of system of linear equations, in general. The applicability of meshless methods can be found in several areas. 
The goal of this session is  to explorate theoretical foundations and applicability of meshless methods in Engineering fields and Computer Science. Also start-up common reseach activity targeted to EU project applications.

The Symposium is aimed to deal with a broad range of  theoretical and applied questions occurring in statistical practice and concerning Distribution Theory, Estimation, and Inference, which may be considered as the three main cornerstones or building blocks of statistics. Others would say they rather intertwine themselves to make the essence of Statistics. Indeed, in one way or another they are ubiquitous in any research in statistics, either theoretical or applied.
 
They have always been essential parts of the fundamental bases of all aspects associated with statistical studies. In many inferential processes, new and important results on the exact, asymptotic, or near-exact distributions of the associated test statistics and parameter estimators have been applied with considerable success in multivariate analysis; linear, nonlinear, and mixed models; order statistics; and extreme value theory. Also, recent results in estimation, combined with other new results in distribution theory and inference, have made major contributions to a broad spectrum of statistical techniques.  (in Preface of the Special Issue of Journal of Statistical Theory and Practice on ‘Distribution Theory, Estimation and Inference’, Vol. 9, Issue 1, 2015.)
 
This Symposium will cover topics on Univariate and Multivariate Analysis, Linear and Nonlinear Models, Order Statistics and Extreme Value Theory, which are key areas where works on the study of the exact, asymptotic or near-exact distributions of the associated test statistics and parameter estimators, as well as all aspects related with Estimation and Inference (as, e.g. contour sets and generating functions), are fields of major importance.
 
Topics on Distribution Theory may cover areas as:
 
  • Symmetric distributions
  • Skewed distributions
  • Directional distributions
  • Limit distributions
  • Methods for constructing distributions
  • Simulation of distributions
  • Asymptotic  analysis of distributions
  • Estimation and Testing related issues

Fractal harmonic analysis on local fields has been established. In the book “Harmonic Analysis and Fractal Analysis over Local fields and Applications”, the author shows basic  concept, fundamental and essential theories, as well as important methods about this new scientific area. Then the vast majority preparations for fractal ordinary differential equations   and fractal partial differential equations (simply, fractal ODE and fractal PDE) are almost completed. Obviously, there are very closed relationships and some inherent connections  between the fractal harmonic analysis and fractal ODE and PDE. Thus, our symposium is   named “Fractal Harmonic Analysis and Fractal differential equations”.  Moreover, some     new results in this new area are obtained recently, and will be shown on our symposium. 
 
Moreover, some new idea of applying fractal analysis to medical science and clinical medicines (except to control malignancy of liver cancers, to operate the auxiliary partial ortho-topic liver’s transplantation), for example, to devise robots for diagnosing malignancy degree of liver’ cancers. 
 
Certainly, many other scientific research topics have closed relationships with fractal  harmonic analysis and fractal ODE and fractal PDE, so that all theoretical and applicative   topics, nice research results about fractals, included new idea, new theory, new techniques and new applications are welcome in our Symposium. Other interesting topics related with fractal geometry and fractal ODE as well as fractal PDE.

E-mail: juraj.kralik@stuba.sk

The main purpose of the Section “Recent Advances in Numerical Methods and Simulations in Statics and Dynamics of Structures”  is the presentation of new methods to analyse of safety and reliability of the structures under extreme loads as the earthquake and climatic loads (temperature, wind, snow, rain and others), terroristic attack (aircraft, missile, blast, fire and others) or technology accident (explosion, high temperature and others). The nonlinear material and geometric behaviour of structures is necessary consider during extreme loads. The risk the structure collapse is determined by the model and resistance uncertainties. The deterministic and probabilistic analysis of  the structure failure during the extreme loading can be used.  The probabilistic assessment give us the most complex analysis of the acceptable level of risk. Recently, the theories of probability and statistics and reliability have provided the bases for modern structural design codes and specifications.
 
The main objectives of the Mini-symposium are developing:
 
  • The advanced methods and simulations of structure failure under extreme loads,
  • The nonlinear material and geometric  model of structures and the effective numerical methods,
  • The advances in the soil-base-structure or soil-fluid-structure interaction analysis under seismic loads, 
  • The experimental tests and the fluid simulation of the blast or extreme wind impact on  structures with various shape,
  • The optimisation of  the new composite materials or structure shape to have the higher safety of the structure under impact of extreme loads, 
  • The simulation probabilistic methods and the stochastic finite elements to probabilistic analysis of the structure resistance due to extreme loads,
  • The risk analysis of the structure failure using the fragility curves of the structural elements for various type of accident or extreme loads, 
  • The Reliability-Based Optimization procedures to consider of the effects of uncertainty by means of reliability, the applications involving optimal structural design for stochastic linear and nonlinear statics and dynamics. 
  • The experience from the experiment tests, modelling and simulations  of  the structure failure under extreme loads using the deterministic or probabilistic assessment are welcome.

Differential equations play an important role in several mathematical models that describe many phenomena in natural sciences, such as physics, biology, engineering,  and economics.  However, it is difficult to get exact solutions of the problems that the real life offers for these models.
 
Several scientists consider the group method approach a milestone in the search for solutions of nonlinear differential equations. In fact, although this approach is not always able to characterize the whole set of solutions, it allows one to get wide classes of exact solutions in a methodological way. Moreover the knowledge of symmetries admitted by an equation does not bring only to a reduction of independent variable but allows us to get conservation laws or to first integrals.
 
In the last few decades, a large amount of publications in theoretical and applied mathematics are devoted to the group methods and their generalizations.
 
The Lie group method specifies and extends the concept of symmetry, yields the effective methods of symmetry applications in complicated situations, gives correct statement of problems and in many cases indicates the possible way of their solutions. 
 
The aim of this minisymposium is to focus the attention of scientists in symmetry methods to the search for exact solutions of nonlinear models in physics, in engineering science, and in biology as well as to show recent developments of the theoretical tools of the group methods  applicable to the study of differential equations.

Computer modelling in applied quantum engineering is one of the most important keys in further progressing of material science and quantum electronics. In spite of essential achievements in theoretical quantum mechanics, the applied problems of practical electronics are less paid attention due to the increased complexity of phenomena arisen in electronic components that can be modelled only in a certain way using powerful supercomputers. Then, for practicing design and simulation engineers, the simplified analytical and numerical, including semi-classical models are needed that can be integrated with the contemporary electronic circuit design automation (EDA) tools and which are able to be improved or adapted to the concrete manufacturing technologies using the empirical or semi-empirical methods.
 
The proposed mini-Symposium is aimed to the researchers and engineers who are interested in the development and exploitation of the methods, algorithms and models applicable in practical quantum mechanics and nanoelectronics, but the contributions from broader area are considerable. For instance, the programming aspects of new design tools are in the field of this proposed mini-Symposium. Any abstracts on the experimental verifications of numerical models are in the priority list of this meeting. Completely theoretical contributions, which are prospective for practical simulations in the future, are highly welcome, as well.

There is a silent revolution happening in the world of education. The advancement of technology is allowing us to reach heretofore untouched regions of the world. The educational and pedagogical landscape too is not untouched by such rapid advancement of technology both in terms of challenges and opportunities. On one hand, when technological tools such as Moodle, Coursera and Edunet allow us to reach not only large student bodies, but also students located in geographically disparate locations, the challenges of teaching and evaluating such large number of students are numerous as well. In this symposium, papers that are written about how novel technology is effectively used to address the challenges of the new world, would be reviewed and accepted if found suitable.

Interdisciplinarity aims at obtaining the new by crossing boundaries between academic disciplines, and thinking across them.
 
Computer aided medical planning and simulation is a rapidly evolving research field that is going to alter dramatically the way practitioners perform their job. Mathematical models and computer simulations have a huge impact on modern medicine and engineering, in the treatment of diseases, in modeling engineering processes and prototypes and financial planning processes. For instance, a challenge lies in the modeling of the behavior of hard and soft tissue bringing together researchers from mathematics, medicine, economics, computer science and engineering. Another type of challenge could consist in data processing as subject to very general topics, including signal processing, field image or volume, with many applications in industry and medicine. Last but not least, modern medicine and state of the art engineering implies best "treatment" with cost effective optimization.
 
It should be emphasized that it is not expected the mathematician to become a physician or an engineer but to acquire interdisciplinary concepts and gain the ability to use and value modern methods across domains.
 
Besides talks of mathematicians, doctors and engineers, the master students, PhD students, post-doc students or junior researchers will have the opportunity to present their works.
 
Our minisymposium addresses issues related but not limited to:

84) Title: Vulnerability Reduction of Existing Buildings and Design of New Structures in Seismic Area

Organizers: Gabriele MILANI, Technical University of Milan, Piazza Leonardo da Vinci 32, Milan, Antonio FORMISANO, University of Naples Federico II, Piazzale Tecchio 80, Naples and Francesco CLEMENTI, Università Politecnica delle Marche, Via Brecce Bianche 12, Ancona

E-mail: gabriele.milani@polimi.it

Experience of past earthquakes has demonstrated that many common buildings and typical methods of construction usually lack basic resistance against earthquake actions. Open challenges to tackle a consistent seismic design are more profoundly faced by developing countries, were the inadequacy and poor access to advanced technologies, resources and knowledge lead to build new structures still vulnerable for horizontal loads. Conversely, open issues in industrialized countries like USA, EU and Japan are still the mitigation of the seismic vulnerability of the existing/historical built stock, almost always constituted by non-ductile materials and conceived to withstand only vertical loads. The MS aims at comprehensively collecting papers dealing with the important issues related to the correct design of new structures and the vulnerability reduction of existing buildings in earthquake prone areas.
 
Contributions on structures made by both traditional (steel, R.C., masonry and wood) and innovative (e.g. FRP) materials are encouraged, as well as detailed analyses on topics regarding strengthening of existing structures, seismic isolation and dissipation systems.
 
Experimental and numerical studies, as well as emblematic case studies and critical discussions on existing standardized methods are very welcome.

87) Title: Dynamical Systems and their Applications to Advanced Materials, Structures and Technologies

Organizer: Prof. Jiri Vala, Brno University of Technology, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Veveri 95, CZ‐602 00 Brno, Czech Republic

E-mail: vala.j@fce.vutbr.cz

The theoretical, numerical and computational analysis of dynamical systems and their  applications to the analysis of problems coming from civil, mechanical, electrical, etc. engineering and related subject fields, their formal verification and practical validation of relevant approaches constitute the unifying idea of this symposium, whose significance should be seen just in the confrontation of different approaches and intensification of multidisciplinary cooperation of experts (mathematicians, physicists, engineers, ...). Leaving nice model cases and seeing the real-world problems, we come to serious difficulties a) in the formal analysis of existence, uniqueness, stability, etc. of solutions, b) in the convergence of sequences of approximate solutions, as well as c) in the design of sufficiently robust and inexpensive algorithms for direct, sensitivity and inverse problems.

The unification approaches addressed to the continuous and discrete analysis, namely to the study of integral, differential, difference, etc. equations from engineering practice, both deterministic and stochastic ones, including their formulation on time scales, is needed: the theoretical problems include e.g. i) stability and observability of dynamical systems on time scales, their qualitative and quantitative analysis, ii) filtration of inner states of such systems and iii) identification of systems of orthogonal functions. The scope of applications is not limited, but both theoretical and computational predictions of mechanical, thermal, etc. behaviour of advanced materials and structures and control of related technologies, up to the development of modelling and simulation software tools, are welcome.

 

88) Title: Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Modelling – A Crucial Field in Both Secondary and Tertiary Education

Organizer: Prof. Dr. Rita Borromeo Ferri, University of Kassel, Germany

E-mail: borromeo@mathematik.uni‐kassel.de

This Symposium focuses on questions how Applied Mathematics and Mathematical Modelling can be taught at the secondary and tertiary education level to promote student’s understanding in mathematics and motivation. Research results show that many students have problem with basics of mathematics and so quit their university studies or change their study subject. In the last years Higher Education Mathematics was promoted in order to find ways of teaching, which are based on didactical reflections and learning theories.
 
The goal is to bring together researcher and scientist, who share their experience in their teaching. Highly welcome are ideas of lectures or experiences with seminars, which offer students for example an understanding of complex definitions or procedures. So questions of Higher Education Mathematics are stressed. The reflection of own teaching should be a crucial part of a lecturer and researcher.
