SANUM2020/21 News (Update - August 2021)

We regret to inform you that due to the current COVID-19 situation in South Africa we have decided to cancel this year’s SANUM meeting, which we had hoped to have in-person in November.

In its place, we have decided to collaborate with the South African Mathematical Society (SAMS), and will now have an online SANUM in the form of a special session at this year’s SAMS congress. The dates are 29 November to 01 December, and registration is free at

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) symposium with presentations and posters on these and related topics.

The symposium currently rotates between three host institutions: Stellenbosch University, the University of Pretoria, and the University of the Witwatersrand. It serves as the annual symposium for the Numerical and Applied Mathematics research theme of the NRF Centre of Excellence in Mathematical and Statistical Sciences (CoE MaSS).
