- Goals/motivation: numerical and symbolic computation plays a vital interdisciplinary role in different disciplines like applied mathematics and information systems, computer science, physics, biology, medicine, economy and engineering. This symposium is designed to exercise such multidisciplinary nature of numerical and symbolic computation with the emphasis on computer vision and data management.
- Topics of importance: high accuracy measurements of geometrical properties like trajectory and shape recovery, human gait and motion restoration, facial expression description, intelligent video analysis, image processing and biometrics and other missing information are vital to the analysis of the hidden structure not fully transparent from various noisy or noiseless data. The asymptotic behaviour of the proposed algorithms/schemes (e.g. interpolation, approximation or modelling via dynamical and PDEs systems) are also important aspects which will be examined in this symposium. Symbolic aspects of computation involved will be considered at different levels of generality of syntactic and semantic data structuring integrated within the frames of granular computing paradigm. Not limited to the mentioned above topics, other papers on numeric, applied mathematics and information systems are welcome. In particular, the latter includes multidimensional analysis, computation in dynamical systems and modelling of risk in banking and insurance.
- Symposium format: it is intended to consist of oral sessions run during 1-2 day(s) in September 23rd-29th of 2015. The speakers will deliver the talks and possible software presentation in 20-30 minutes time intervals. One/two invited speaker(s) will open/close the this symposium. Each co-chair will present at least one paper. If the number of papers is large then some papers may be re-allocated to the poster session (if agreed with ICNAAM organizers).

Real systems such as power plants, production, communication and distribution systems are subject to deterioration and random failure, which can have significant impact on safety, product or service quality, and on the operating cost. Due to the recent advancements in automated data collection, computer technology and information system development, condition monitoring systems have been widely implemented which provide useful information about the actual operating state, which is unknown. Such data can be obtained without interrupting system operation, but this data generally carries only partial information about the system state. The objective of this session is to invite papers dealing with the mathematical modeling and control of such systems with the focus on the development of the optimal control policies as well as the statistical methods used for model fitting and residual life estimation based on the data obtained from condition monitoring.

In many dynamical networks of various nature links between the nodes demonstrate complexity of different types. The aspects of this complexity include nonlinearity of the connections, variability of their strength, dynamical nature of coupling, coupling delays, nontrivial topology of connections, etc. The study of influence of these features on the network dynamics is an important and actual task of applied mathematics. In the symposium “Dynamical networks with complex links” we plan to bring together specialists from various areas facing the problems of complex links in the networks in their study.
