Gandhigram founded in 1947 by the visionary disciples of Mahatma Gandhiji, Dr.T.S.Soundaram and Dr.G.Ramachandran, has emerged as an abode of many rural reconstruction activities. The Gandhigram Rural Institute (GRI) started with the aim of providing higher education to rural populace has become the pioneering model in implementing the three pronged approach of education viz., Teaching, Research and Extension. The achievements of GRI in the last five decades has lead to the conferment of Deemed to be University status by the University Grants Commission, New Delhi in 1976, accreditation with FIVE STAR status by NAAC in the year 2002 and Re-accreditation with ‘A’ Grade in the year 2010 and 2016. Situated in the cradle with Sirumalai Hills and Kodai Hills on the either side, the Institute has created a niche  in the educational map of India by offering unique academic programmes through its seven faculties and lures students not only from within India but also from abroad.


    The Department of mathematics was established in the year 1965 at The Gandhigram Rural Institue (Deemed to be University), Tamil Nadu. To compete with international standards, research on Stability Problems on Dynamical Systems including Neural Networks and Intelligent Systems, Fractal Theory and its Applications, Fuzzy Clustering in Medical  Images, Optimization in Marketing related Problems, Control Theory, Graph Theory, Algebraic Coding Theory are being carried out and the results are published as articles in the SCI scopus journals. Funding for research and development is provided by UGC, NBHM, CSIR and DST-SERB continuously for the past 15 years to the faculty members. As a result of consistent performance in research, the department is recently upgraded with UGC-SAP (DSA) and DST-FIST (level-II). Department also receives library grant from NBHM and equipped with research books and journals. 


      IWMMSC - 2018    is    to    serve    as   an    ideal   platform   for    academicians,   researchers,  engineers   and   scientists  to   exchange  their  expertise  in the field  of  Mathematical  Modelling and  Soft  Computing.  The  workshop  is  expected  to  help  the researchers to update themselves about  the  current  trend  of   their  research  field  through  resource  persons. Workshop  covers the special talks on the following topics:

                                                                             Ø  Artificial Intelligence
                                                Ø  Mathematical Modelling
                                                Ø  Fractal Analysis & Its Applications
                                                Ø  Image Processing
                                                     Ø  Graph Theory on Networks
                                                Ø  Algebraic  Graph Theory
