LAHORE, The three-day international conference on mathematical inequalities and applications concluded at Abdus Salam School of Mathematical Sciences of the Government College University here on Friday.
Around 200 mathematicians from 19 countries attended the conference in which 80 research papers were presented.
At the closing ceremony the international scientific committee of the conference announced three winners of young speakers prize.
They were PhD scholars Kristina Krulic from Croatia, and Naveed Latif and Muhammad Sarwar from Pakistan.
The prizes for the best research papers were shared by Lubes Pick from the Charles University, Prague and Muhammad Sal Moslehian from the University of Mashad, Iran.
ASSMS Director-General Dr A.D. Raza Chaudhry, while addressing the concluding session, said the conference was a great academic success for Pakistan, which was attended by a large number of mathematical scientists from various parts of the world.
It provided a platform to the Pakistani researchers to interact with the best minds in the field of convex analysis.
At the same time, he said, the foreign delegates had an opportunity to develop a very different image of Pakistan, a much more positive image of scientific stories.
They also appreciated the role of the government, particularly the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan, in making the GCU Mathematical School a successful institution that is now recognised the world over.
