The main purpose of SEMA, in organizing this event, is to continue and strengthen the high scientific quality standards achieved by the preceding ICIAM meetings. This general purpose will be pursued by means of the following objectives:
- Highlight the most recent advances in applied mathematics and their applications to sciences, engineering and industry.
- Emphasize industrial applications and computational science in new and emerging topics.
- Demonstrate to young researchers the potential of applied mathematics to solve problems of high applied interest, and also of problems originating from industry to generate interesting and original mathematical problems.
- Present the development of applied mathematics of emerging regions, in particular Mediterranean and African countries.
