research findings. He is the deputy editor of Afrika Matematika - a journal of African
Mathematical Union. He also served as an editorial board member and reviewer to many
reputable international Journals.

Professor Makinde is presently the Secretary General of African Mathematical Union (AMU),
Advisory board member of Pan African Centre of Mathematics (PACM) based in Dar es
Salaam, Tanzania, Scientific committee member of Centre for Applied Research in
Mathematical Sciences (CARMS) at Strathmore University in Kenya and an associate member
of National Institute of Theoretical Physics (NITheP) in South Africa. He served as academic
advisory board member for African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) - South Africa
(2003-2005), Associate Member of International Centre for Theoretical Physics (2000-2005),
General Secretary of the Southern Africa Mathematical Sciences Association (2002-2004) and
Vice–President (2004-2006), a resource person to South African CSIR Modelling and Digital
Science (MDS) unit (2008 till present) and a member of organizing and scientific committee for
Mathematics in Industry Study Group of South Africa (MISGSA).

Professor Makinde received several academic and research excellent awards and honours
within South Africa and beyond, among them are: Winner of 2009-2010 prestigious National
Science and Technology Forum & National Research Foundation award for his outstanding
contribution to Science, Engineering, Technology and Innovation as well as research capacity

OVERVIEW

This program will focus on the role of Mathematical modelling and scientific computing in understanding and illuminating our complex world. The development of computational methodologies and framework has been a mainstay of the Applied Mathematics community for more than 50 years. The workshop and training will expose participants to a broad range of topics related to Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing with MAPLE. Important applications with respect to Engineering, Industrial, Environmental and Biological problems will be considered. The Scientific program consists of lectures by international experts, group discussions and intensive laboratory demonstrations. The training sessions will have a tutorial structure, i.e. will include lectures and exercises.

Professor O. D. Makinde [BSc (Hons), MSc, PhD]

Senior Professor & Director of Postgraduate Studies

Professor Oluwole Daniel Makinde is a Senior Professor and Director of Postgraduate Studies

at Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) in South Africa. Prior to his present

appointment, he was a Senior Professor and Chair of Postgraduate Studies in the Faculty of

Engineering at CPUT. He is also the founder and Director of the Institute for Advanced

Research in Mathematical Modelling and Computations at CPUT. He was a Professor and

Head of Applied Mathematics Department for many years at Univesity of Limpopo in South

Africa. He is an NRF-rated researcher and his research work covers a broad range of topics

including improved perturbation techniques, bifurcation analysis, heat transfer, fluid mechanics,

solid mechanics, bio-mathematics, combustion theory, etc. His research work in the area of

computational mathematics has generated a new approach of tackling nonlinear problems that

model real systems.
