Second AUS Regional Student Conference on Mathematics RSCM 17
Second AUS Regional Student Conference on Mathematics
March 4, 2017
Organized by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics
College of Arts and Sciences
American University of Sharjah
The primary objective of this conference is to bring
together undergraduate and graduate students from the UAE and neighboring
countries to a forum in which they can exchange ideas in different branches of
mathematics and communicate recent developments in mathematical research and
education. The conference will include contributed talks by students and keynote
Topics to be covered include but are not limited to:
- Applied Mathematics
- Differential Equations
- Discrete Mathematics
- Financial Mathematics
- Mathematics Education
- Number Theory
- Numerical Analysis
- Probability Theory
- Statistics and Its Applications
- Stochastic Differential Equations
- Topology and Geometry
Contributed talks and poster presentations by undergraduate and
graduate students are welcome.
Participants are invited to submit extended abstracts or short papers
that will be published in the conference proceedings.
- The deadline for abstract submission is January 31, 2017.
- Abstract selection decision will be made known to all presenting authors by email no later than January 31, 2017.
Early registration period ends at 11:59 pm UAE local time on February 15, 2017.
- Early registration fee is US$ 60.
- Late registration fee is US$ 80.
- While on-site registration is possible, it is recommended that participants register well in advance and take advantage of the fee reduction.
Edriss S. Titi
Edriss S. Titi is the holder of the Owen Professorship of Mathematics in Texas
A&M University, since 2014. He is also Professor Emeritus in the University
of California, Irvine, where he used to hold (1988-2013) a joint appointment in
the Department of Mathematics and the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace
Engineering. He was the L.E. Dickson
Instructor at the University of Chicago (1986-1988), and at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in
Cornell University (1988-1989). He has been a frequent visitor and consultant
to the Center of Nonlinear Studies
(CNLS) in the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) since 1989. He was
the Orson Anderson Distinguished
Visiting Scholar (1997-1998) at the Institute of Geophysics and
Planetary Physics and the Stanislaw M.
Ulam Scholar (2002-2003) at the CNLS in LANL. In 2004 he was elected Fellow of the Institute of Physics,
UK. In 2009 he received the Humboldt
Research Award for Senior US Scientists, and also the Society for Industrial and Applied
Mathematics (SIAM) Prize on Best Paper in Partial Differential
Equations. He was honored in 2012 by being elected as a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM
Fellow), and as a Fellow of the
American Mathematical Society (AMS Fellow). In 2013 he received the Ciência sem Fronteiras - Science without
Boundaries- Scholarship by the Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento
Científico (CNPq), Brazil.
research of Professor Edriss S. Titi in applied and computational mathematics
lies at the interface between rigorous applied analysis and physical
applications. Most of his work has been focused on the development of
analytical and computational techniques for investigating nonlinear phenomena.
Specifically, in studying the Navier-Stokes equations and other related
nonlinear partial differential equations. Such equations arise as models in a
wide range of applications in nonlinear science and engineering. The
applications include, but are not limited to, fluid mechanics, geophysics,
turbulence, chemical reactions, nonlinear fiber optics and control theory. More information about Professor Edriss
Titi can be found here.
Dr. Youssef Belhamadia is Assistant Professor
of Mathematics at American University of Sharjah. Prior to joining AUS, he was Assistant
Professor in Campus Saint-Jean at the University of Alberta in Canada, and he
was also Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical
Engineering and Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at the
University of Alberta. He received his PhD from Laval University in Canada. He
was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Jacques-Louis Lions Laboratory (LJLL), Pierre
and Marie Curie University, Paris 6, France, and a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Civil
Engineering Department at the University of Calgary, Canada. His research focuses on the development
and the implementation of numerical methods for partial differential equations
with strong applications in biomedical and industrial problems. He is mainly
interested in problems where a moving interface is a central issue and where
development of mathematical models and accurate numerical algorithms is needed.
He successfully contributed to solutions of moving interface problems involved
in solid-liquid phase change, cryosurgery, and electrocardiology. His research has been awarded grants from the
Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and from the Heart
and Stroke Foundation of Canada. More
