The XIXth International Symposium on Mathematical Methods Applied to the Sciences (XIX SIMMAC) is the most important event in applied mathematics in Central America. It is organized by the Center for Research in Pure and Applied Mathematics (CIMPA) of the University of Costa Rica every two years, with the support of the School of Mathematics.
Since 1978, this activity has been developped with the participation of several mathematicians and scientists of affine disciplines, coming from Central America, Europe, North America and South America.
Registration to the SIMMAC begins on Monday 24th at 2 p.m., at the Physic-Mathematic building. Registration on Tuesday opens at 8 a.m.
XIX SIMMAC will take place from February 25th to 28th, 2014.
