The Cape Verde International Days on Mathematics 2017 (CVIM'2017) will take place at University of Cape Verde, Campus de Palmarejo, from 8 to 11 May, 2017. The conference is the third in the conference series "The Cape Verde International Days on Mathematics" organized by the University of Cape Verde, Cape Verde, and the University of Aveiro, Portugal.

Aims and Scope

Topics of the conference include (but are not limited to):
  • Optimization and Variational Analysis
  • Mathematical Systems Theory
  • Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations
  • Geometric Nonlinear Control and Applications
  • Mathematical Modeling and Numerical Methods Applied to Biomedicine
  • Matrix theory and its applications
  • Fractional Calculus
  • Calculus on Time Scales

The conference will consist of invited plenary talks (40 minutes + 5 minutes) and contributed paper presentations (20 minutes + 5 minutes).

Selected full papers of this conference will be published in an international journal.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Praia, Cape Verde! It will be a mathematically enriching and socially exciting event.

Cape Verde comprises ten islands and is located 600 kilometers off the coast of Senegal. The islands vary in geographical characteristics. Sal, Boavista, Maio, and São Vicente are flat and desert-like, with stretches of sand dunes. Santiago, Santo Antão, Fogo, and São Nicolau are more mountainous and arable, although all the islands have a long history of drought. They are all of volcanic origin; Fogo, the only volcano still active, last erupted in 2014. The capital, Praia, is on the island of Santiago which is the largest in terms of area and population and the first one to be settled.

Cape Verde’s climate is pleasantly tropical with year round average temperatures between 26° and 30° C, uninterrupted sunshine from November to May and a rainy season between the months of June and October, when sudden but spectacular rainstorms can punctuate the hot sun.
