LAHORE (PR) - The Lahore School of Economics, Centre for Mathematics and Statistical Sciences (CMSS), hosted eleventh conference on Recent Advances in Mathematical Methods, Models and Applications (RAMMMA16) at the Lahore School’s Burki Campus from April 9 to 10, 2016.

The "RAMMMA" tradition has these key features: the number of participants is usually bounded above by 70 with a mix of pure and applied interests; there are no parallel sessions so that all participants focus on each presentation and fully engage in each topic; and there is ample time for discussion of each presentation. The goal of conference was to bring together mathematicians and users of mathematics to talk to each other, to transfer problems, ideas and methods from one community to the other, so as to enhance progress in understanding.

Dr Ismat Beg is the pioneer of this tradition which has not only contributed to the ongoing research in Pakistan but has also brought together many researchers, mathematicians and students. The main organizers of the conference were Dr Ismat Beg from Center for Mathematics and Statistical Sciences, LSE; Dr Asghar Qadir from Center of Natural Sciences, National University of Science and Technology, Islamabad and Dr Saleem Asghar from COMSATS Institute of Information Technology, Islamabad. The local organizers of the conference were Dr Rana Abdul Wajid, Dr. Asma Khalid and Ms.Zoya Raza from Center for Mathematics and Statistics, Lahore School of Economics.
