International Conference on Applied Mathematics

The Department of Applied Mathematics of the University of Crete, the Archimedes Center for Modeling, Analysis and Computation (ACMAC) and the Institute of Applied and Computational Mathematics - FORTH organized the International Conference on Applied Mathematics that was held on the grounds of FORTH, Heraklion, Crete, Greece on September 16 - 20, 2013.

In the Conference there was presentation of plenary lectures and mini–symposia that were organized on targeted thematic programs. The Conference covered major recent developments in the general area of Applied Mathematics and attracted in FORTH a large number of leading researchers in the field of Applied Mathematics.

The plenary lecturers were:
