The purpose of this 4th International Conference is to bring together worldwide experts; to give presentations in the fields of Optimization and Numerical Analysis and related applications and to promote scientific exchange and discuss possibilities of further cooperation, networking and promotion of mobility of senior and young researchers and research students. In addition, presentations of novel and advanced applications in science, engineering, medicine and commerce, etc., are encouraged in order to facilitate cross-fertilization among various key sectors of pure scientific and applied knowledge.

The participants will present their results and discuss further new developments concerning applicable methods in their fields. The conference will feature lectures by invited prominent scientists and will provide the opportunity for regional researchers to present their latest work.

NAOIV-2017 is the 4th conference in a series organized every three years, with previous ones held in 2008, 2011 and 2014. The Conference will be organized by the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, College of Science, SQU; Department of Mathematics and Science, German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech); and Oman Mathematics Committee.
