Sessions - Minisymposia

Procedures for the approval of a proposal for a Session-Workshop or Minisymposium

The organizer must provide:
1. A proposal for the organization of a Session-Workshop or Minisymposium.
2. A small description of his/her proposal (no more than 150 words).
3. A short CV.
4. Information about the procedures which will be followed for the promotion of that Session-Workshop or Minisymposium (the organizer is responsible for the promotion).
5. His/her full affiliations along with an e-mail adress for the submission of papers on the subject of the Session-Workshop or Minisymposium.

Attention Note: The maximum number of papers per author is four (4)

After the approval, the organizer will be the person responsible for the selection of the papers. The papers must be sent to the ICNAAM Secretariat until 22/7/2015. In the Proceedings of ICNAAM 2015 the Sessions-Workshops and Minisymposia will lie in a separate section of the Volume with a Preface created by the organizer. Occasionally, the organizer must inform us about the participation of his/her Session. If a Session consists of at least 6 registrations, the organizer will be granted free registration for ICNAAM 2015. If a Symposium consists of at least 10 registrations, the organizer will be granted free registration and have a part of the accomodation expenses covered.

If a participant wants to send a paper to a Symposium mentioned below, please use the e-mail address(es) of the organizer(s).





1) Title: The 10th International Symposium on Numerical Analysis of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer - Numerical Fluids 2015

Organizer: Dr Dia Zeidan, School of Natural Resources Engineering and Management, German Jordanian University, Amman, Jordan


This symposium series started in Crete, Greece, in 2006 chaired by Professor Pawel Kosinski of the University of Bergen, Norway. The symposium is associated with the annual edition of the ICNAAM since 2006. It represents one of the largest and most successful activities of ICNAAM with a strong commitment to research and development within the academic community. Since its start, the focus of the symposium is numerical mathematics for fluid flow problems and related topics.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  • formulation, identification and solution of multidimensional fluid flows and heat transfer
  • numerical methods for fluid flows and heat transfer
  • multi-phase fluid flow problems
  • non-Newtonian fluid dynamics
  • free surface, environmental and geophysical flows
  • population balance modeling, optimization and control
  • agglomeration, breakup and collision
  • shock waves, combustion and explosions
  • biological fluid flows
  • fuel cell, granular and porous media
  • microfluidics and nanofluidics
  • fluid-structure interactions
  • magnetohydrodynamic flows
  • turbulence and phase interaction in fluid dynamics
  • engineering applications of fluid dynamics and heat transfer
  • experimental measurements and numerical modelling of the fluid flows and heat transfer


2) Title: Signal Processing and Pattern Recognition in Geosciences

Organizer: Dr Gaci Said

Recently, a wide range of digital signal processing and pattern recognition applications is receiving an increasing attention in geosciences. Our session will illustrate potential of the following methods and other relevant topics: linear/nonlinear time-series analysis, statistical methods, fractal analysis, spectral analysis using Fourier/wavelet transforms, fuzzy Logic, genetic and neural algorithms, etc.

We encourage scientists to submit contributions related to the application of these techniques in different fields of geosciences: geophysics (seismic, gravity/magnetic, electromagnetism/magnetotelluric, etc.), geology, hydrogeology, geodesy/topography, etc.

3) Title: Statistics and Modelling VI

Organizer: Dr. Milan Stehlik, Universidad Tecnica Federico Santa Maria, Valparaiso, Chile  - Institut fur angewandte Statistik, Freistadter Stra?e 315, A-4040 Linz, Austria


This session will address a recent developments in statistics and modelling. In particular also applications will be considered.


4) Title: The Second Symposium on Approximation of Curves and Surfaces (ACS 2015)

Organizer: Prof.  Dr. Abedallah Rababah, Chairman, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Jordan University of Science and Technology, 22110  Irbid, Jordan


The Second Symposium on Approximation of Curves and Surfaces will be held within ICNAAM 2015 that will take place at Rodos Palace Hotel in Rhodes-Greece, September 23-29, 2015. Presentations will be for 30 minutes including questions. All papers presented at ACS 2015 will be published in AIP Proceedings (American Institute of Physics).

The symposium will be devoted to approximation  of curves and surfaces and their techniques and applications in all fields of science. All topics in Approximation Theory, Computer Aided Design, Computer Graphics, Computational Geometry, Image and Signal Processing, Modelling, Expansions, Splines, Wavelets, and all related issues and their use in solving real life problems will be covered.

Papers that address issues related to the following categories are welcomed:


  •  Approximation theory and Orthogonal Polynomials
  •  Computer Aided Geometric Design and the Bezier curves and surfaces
  •  Computer Graphics, Visualization, and Image Processing
  •  Approximation and Interpolation of Functions
  •  Simulation and Modelling in Science, Engineering, and Life Science
  •  Computational Geometry and CAD
  •  Splines and Wavelets (univariate and multivariate) 

5) Title: Fourth Symposium on Statistical Inference in Linear Models

Organizer: Prof Dr Francisco Carvalho, Unidade Departamental de Matemática e Física, Instituto Politécnico de Tomar, Estrada da Serra – Quinta do Contador, 2300-313 Tomar, Portugal and Centro de Matemática e Aplicações, Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, 2829-516 Caparica, Portugal


Linear models play an important role in several fields of science, either in the design of the multiple experiments, or by the analysis of data necessary to uphold the decision making. This Symposium will be devoted to new developments in estimation procedures for such models and to applications with these models.
The topics that have been selected include
  • estimation,
  • prediction and testing in linear models,
  • robustness of relevant statistical methods,
  • estimation of variance components appearing in linear models,
  • generalizations to nonlinear models,
  • design and analysis of experiments, including optimality and comparison of linear experiments.
In this Symposium, contribution in these areas, including procedures, applications, computational solutions, are welcome.
