The challenge in mathematical modelling is “. . . not to produce the most comprehensive descriptive model but to produce the simplest possible model that incorporates the major features of the phenomenon of interest.” -Howard Emmons
Mathematical modelling essentially involves utilizing mathematical principles and concepts to describe real world phenomena. The end goal is to better understand these phenomena, glean insights about their behaviour and use obtained insights to control and make behavioural predictions about the phenomenon of interest. Mathematical models are finding renewed applications in disciplines ranging from economics to engineering, natural sciences, social sciences and interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary fields. Some mathematical problems often require the use of more than one tool or modelling technique for accurate analysis and solution. The challenge for modellers is often to determine the right tools and approach to use in solving real world problems.
We would like to invite researchers to contribute to publish both in the planned special issue in AJSTID and book chapters in the forthcoming book to be published by Taylor & Francis Routledge Publishers. Papers should describe contributions of mathematical modelling techniques or methods to solve problems and highlight how significant mathematical modelling limitations were handled. Furthermore the papers must demonstrate sufficient novelty and provide meaningful insights in the solution of practical problems. You are welcome to contribute original papers to be submitted by August 15, 2017.
The ASIALICS Organising Committee invites full paper submissions for the 14th ASIALICS Conference to be held in Tehran, Iran 30-31 August, 2017.
The main theme of the conference is Technological learning, innovation and catching-up in the context of international collaborations.
Paper submission deadline: 8 June, 2017
Key note lecture will be given by Prof. Lundvall from Aalborg University, Denmark and Prof. Djeflat from Université des Sciences et Technologies de Lille (Lille-1), France.
The conference will explore, among other things, the modes of technological learning and innovation within the context of international collaborations for successful catching-up. For West-Asia it is important to learn from the experiences of East-Asia’s successful countries while at the same time exploring its own way based on capabilities and conditions.
Original papers pertaining to the issues of technological learning and innovation, capability building, catching-up and even development in different levels (i.e. firms, industries or countries) are welcome.
