February 15-18, 2008

The IBARAKI KOSEN Workshop "Mathematics, Technology and Education" aims to provide a forum for researchers and students as well as practitioners to exchange innovative ideas and to be aware of each other's efforts and results. The workshop brings together researchers and scientists from mathematics and computer science as basic mathematical disciplines, researchers from various application areas who are pioneering advanced application of mathematical methods to sciences such as physics, chemistry, life sciences, and engineering, arts and humanitarian fields, along with software developers and vendors, to discuss problems and solutions in the area, to identify new issues, and to shape future directions for research, as well as to help industrial users apply various advanced mathematical techniques.

You are invited to submit a paper. Please see the Call for Papers for paper submission information. All accepted papers will be printed in the workshop proceedings. A selected number of papers will also be published as the special issue of  Mathematics Applied in Science and Technology (MAST) or/and other intentional journals ( in negotiation).

Following on the successful edition of the first IBARAKI KOSEN Workshop MTE 2006, this second edition MTE 2008 will take place on February 15-18, 2008 at Ibaraki National College of Technology (called ``Ibaraki Kosen" in Japanese), Hitachinaka-shi, Ibaraki (Japan).   The theme is "Advancing Science and Society through Mathematical Reasoning", to mark several decades of progress in mathematical science theory and practice, leading to greatly improved applications science. This workshop will be a unique event focusing on recent developments in novel methods and modelling of complex systems for diverse areas of science, scalable scientific algorithms, advanced software tools, computational grids, advanced numerical methods, and formal/novel application areas where the above novel models, algorithms and tools can be efficiently applied such as physical systems, computational and systems biology, environmental systems, finance, and others. We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting event!

The workshop MTE 2008 is in partnership with the conference:
