As many as 300 mathematicians from 13 countries on five continents follow the 6th SEAMS-GMU 2011 International Conference on Mathematics and Its Applications seminar. The event is held from 12 to 15 July 2011 in Auditorium of Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences Universitas Gadjah Mada. A number of countries participating in the event are South Africa, Australia, America, India, Iran, Nigeria, the Philippines, Pakistan, Mexico, Malaysia, Mongolia, Taiwan and Thailand.
The conference organized by Department of Mathematics, UGM, in cooperation with mathematicians’ organization in Southeast Asia (SEAMS) presents 18 guest speakers from various countries. It is divided into five fields, namely algebra, applied mathematics, statistics, computing, computer science, and analysis. Some of the experts are Prof. Ang Keng Cheng (Singapore), Prof. Halina France-Jackson (South Africa), Prof. Andreas Rauber (Austria), and Dr. Peter Filmozer (Austria).
According to the Committee Chairman of SEAMS-GMU Conference 2011, Dr. rer.nat., Dedi Rosadi, M.Sc., the conference was intended as a forum for researchers, lecturers, educators, and students to communicate with each other, share information and discuss research results and new developments in the field of mathematics, statistics, and computer science.
In addition, the conference is expected to enhance cooperation between researchers from various countries in Southeast Asia and other regions. "The expectation is this conference could also enhance networking among researchers in various areas," he added.
Dedi stated that at this conference, a number of researchers are also invited, both from the country and abroad, to present research findings in the parallel session, which will present as many as 217 papers from various fields of mathematics and its applications.
Still in the series the 6th SEAMS-GMU 2011, Workshop on Stochastic Models in Biology (6-8/7) has been conducted, presenting speaker Prof. Jean Sthepanie Dhersin (Institute Galiee) and Workshop on Financial Mathematics (7-8/7), presenting Dr. Svetlana Borovkova (de Vrije Universiteit, The Netherlands).
