Due to the universal nature of both mathematics and natural sciences the symposium invites not only researchers from developing countries, but also all interested scientists from developed countries. Indeed, the symposium will present a number of prominent scientists from Europe, Asian and Australia as keynote speakers. This will expose the pertinent, though not exhaustive, current progress in mathematics and natural sciences, that would be important to all interested researchers for providing a better future, especially in the development of their fields as well as for supporting new technologies.Read More
Geert de Snoo is a professor at Leiden University. His research and education concerns are biodiversity and sustainability in rural areas, especially about the impacts of chemicals on biodiversity, ecological risk assessment and development of recovery strategies and the impacts of land use changes on biodiversity, biodiversity & landscape management, ecological restoration and transition towards sustainable production and land use.
Professor Irth is vice-Dean at the VU Amsterdam Bèta-faculty and is both appointed interim Dean to the Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences and the Faculty of Science at the VU Amsterdam from June 1st to September 1st. Previously, Professor Irth worked as researcher at LACDR between 1991 to 1999, and for his new function he will be appointed Professor of Biomolecular Analysis. Commenting on his return to LACDR: "It is a great honour for me to be a part of such a renowned research institute which is the LACDR. As scientific director it is again a wonderful opportunity to be intensely involved with education and research.”
Her main research interests are currently focused on the design, synthesis and characterization of novel tailor made macromolecules as well as on the development of sustainable, eco-efficient and competitive production methods of polymeric materials. By utilizing modern polymer synthesis techniques including biocatalysis and other controlled polymerization methods my research aims to expand fundamental scientific knowledge towards advanced technologies.
Prof. Thomas Palstra holds a chair in Solid State Chemistry and has a leading research group in electric conduction, magnetism, superconductivity and ferroelectrics. His present scientific interests include crystal structure-property relationships of transition metal oxides, organic conductors and organic-inorganic hybrid materials. He has coauthored approximately 190 manuscripts which were cited more than 12000 times, resulting in a Hirsch-index of 54. He was elected in 2010 member of the Dutch Royal Academy of Sciences.
Prof. Palstra has fulfilled a number of management responsibilities including vice-dean and dean of the Faculty of Mathematics and Physical Sciences (2008-2009), and is presently director of the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials. He was responsible for the RUG Sectorplan Physics and Chemistry (2009) and for the self-evaluation of the Zernike Institute (2010). The latter resulted in a no.1 position in the ranking of the six top-research schools, ex aequo with NOVA, astronomy.
Professor Pollett holds an honours degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Adelaide and a PhD degree in Applied Probability from the University of Cambridge. His research is recognized internationally for significant contributions to Markov process theory, and mathematical modelling of complex systems in population biology, ecology, chemical kinetics and telecommunications. This research has been supported by twelve ARC Discovery/Linkage grants. Additionally, he was a Chief Investigator and node leader within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematics and Statistics of Complex Systems (2003-2014), and is presently a Chief Investigator and node leader within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (2014-2020). In 1993 he was awarded the Moran Medal by the Australian Academy of Science for distinguished research in applied probability.
Dr. Terry Mart is a professor of physics at Departemen Fisika, FMIPA, Universitas Indonesia. He was born in Palembang on March 3, 1965. He received his sarjana degree from Universitas Indonesia in 1988 with cum-laude. In 1996 he received Doctor rerum naturalium (Doctor of sciences) from Universitaet Mainz, Germany, also with cum-laude. Between 1997 and 2000 he spent his post doctoral research time mostly at the Departement of Physics, the George Washington University, Washington DC, USA, Department of Physics and Science Simulation Center, the Okayama University of Sciences, Okayama, Japan, and the Institut fur Kernphysik, University of Mainz, Germany. His current research interests are electromagnetic production of strangeness on nucleons and nuclei, properties of nucleon resonances, production of hypertriton and heavier hypernuclei, and properties of the neutron star matter. One of his theoretical models for the production of strangeness on nucleon called KAON-MAID is accessible via internet at the homepage of theoretical hadronic physics group, the University of Mainz. The model has been intensively used by both theoreticians and experimentalists working on the subject since the year of 2000. Up to 2009 he has written around 100 scientific papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings.
Hasmadi Ismail is a Professor of Faculty of Forestry in Universiti Putra Malaysia. He has many publication since 2007 until now.
