The aim of Industrial Mathematics is to focus Applicable Mathematics on the solution of real life problems of industry. Successful activities in Industrial Mathematics have been reported from the aerospace, automotive, petrochemical / chemical, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, financial, agricultural and health industries.

The workshop will include keynote addresses, contributed papers and will provide a forum for cooperation between Universities and the various industrial organizations in the Gulf countries.


Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:

Mathematical Modeling of Real World Problems
Variational Methods
Mathematics of Finance
Stochastic Calculus
Image Processing - wavelets, fractals, etc
Computational Mathematics - Finite Element Analysis, etc
Differential Equations & Control Theory
Boundary Value Problems

Invited Speakers

Professor Noel Barton (Australia)
Professor Martin Brokate (Germany)
Professor Francesco Pappalardi (Italy)

Location and Climate

King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) is located in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia, between the headquarters of the Saudi Arabian Oil Company (SAUDI ARAMCO) and Dhahran Air Base. It is situated on top of the geologic dome, or anticline, where the first petroleum was discovered in Dammam Well No. 7, located about half a kilometer from the campus. A number of producing oil wells were at one time actually on University land, although sub-soil mineral rights are held by the Government.

The temperature at the time of the workshop will be around 28 C during the day and about 23 C at night.
