The Conference focuses on various aspects of mathematical modelling and usage of finite difference and finite element methods for numerical solution of modern problems in science and engineering. It aims, in particular, at fostering cooperation among practitioners and theoreticians in this field. Another very important goal of the MMA meetings is to assist in the creation and maintenance of contacts between scientists from the West and the East. Working language of the Conference is English.

Basic Topics

  • Analysis of numerical methods for solving problems of mathematical physics. 
  • Application of numerical methods to industrial and engineering problems. 
  • Parallel algorithms and parallel computing. 
  • Qualitative analysis and applications of ordinary and partial differential equations and difference equations problems. 
  • Scientific computing. 
  • Financial mathematics and mathematics in economics.
  • Mathematical modelling and analysis on the basis of fuzzy sets

The scientific program includes invited plenary talks (40 min) and contributed talks (20 min). We also invite participants to organize mini-symposia. The format for a mini-symposium might be a principal lecture and a number of communications of 15-20 minutes given by the other speakers. The mini-symposia will be scheduled in parallel sessions.
