There were over 200 participants from all over the world joining the 5-day conference. The conference programme covered a wide range of topics in mathematical modeling including Teaching Method, Teaching Cases and Investigation of Students Performance etc. There were Keynote Speech, Plenary Speech, Symposium, Parallel Sessions and Plenary Panel Session in the conference.
The keynote and plenary speakers are:
Keynote Speech - Prof. BURKHARDT, Hugh (The University of Nottingham, UK)
Prof. ANG, Keng Cheng (Nanyang Technological University, Singapore)
