South African Numerical and Applied Mathematics (SANUM) is a special interest group for South African and international academics in the areas of applied mathematics, numerical analysis, and scientific computing, and a yearly (typically three-day) conference with presentations and posters on these and related topics.
The conference currently rotates between three host institutions: Stellenbosch University, the University of Pretoria, and the University of Witwatersrand. It serves as the annual conference for the Applied and Numerical Mathematics research theme of the NRF Centre of Excellence in Mathematical and Statistical Sciences (CoE MaSS).
The 42nd SANUM conference
will take place at Stellenbosch University in 4-6 April 2018. Registration will open in late 2017.
In the meantime we encourage you to pre-register here or by mailing us at email@example.com.
We are pleased to announce the following plenary speakers:
We are pleased to announce the following special sessions:
Data Science is a new and evolving discipline that attempts to systematically find insights from data. Due to the data deluge of our generation and tremendous increase in computing power, Data Science has recently generated a lot of interest in both academia and industry. Researchers are working on very interesting mathematical and computational research questions in Data Science, but also on applications of Data Science to support decision making in all facets of life. This session will be composed of talks from the mathematics, computations and applications of Data Science.
If you are interested in presenting in this session, please contact Bubacarr Bah at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This special session focuses on finite element and finite volume methods used in computational fluid dynamics and structural mechanics. Presentations on the advances of the methods themselves, as well as on applications in any field, will be considered.

The aim of this special session is to promote the wide range of activities taking place in industrial mathematics in South Africa. Presentations in all areas of numerical and analytical mathematics (including optimization, control theory, image processing, fluid and solid mechanics) applied to industrial problems will be considered. Problems containing substantial mathematical modelling will be particularly welcome. All branches of South African industry will be considered, including manufacturing, mining, conservation and renewable energy, wine industry, sugar industry, iron and steel, and leisure industries such as sport and tourism.
