What is SANUM?

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).
