Call for Presentation Abstracts: In conjunction with the Southern Africa Mathematical Sciences Association (SAMSA) Annual Conference and the Masamu Advanced Institute (MASI) and Workshops in Mathematical Sciences, an international research symposium will be held on Monday, November 20, 2023 at the Menlyn Protea Hotel Fire and Ice. The Symposium starts at 9am. Registration at 8:30am. 

Symposium Theme: "Mathematics Connecting to One Health"

The symposium will focus on the interconnection of human, animal, and environmental health. We will highlight the previous work done by the network and work on future collaborative research areas and knowledge transfer. By using mathematical and statistical tools and research teams from different disciplines and geographical areas, as well as utilizing policymakers and practitioners, we can inform policy and practices to improve the health of all.

Target Participants: Allied Health organizations, agencies, government, industry, nonprofits, and academia. Participation is limited to 80 individuals. 

The symposium will provide an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to showcase their current research work through 15-minute presentations or poster presentations for participants to highlight their current research work and needs for future work. Researchers and practitioners are welcome to submit abstracts by August 1, 2023 and will be notified about the acceptance of the presentation by August 31, 2023. Space is limited, so there will be no deadline extensions.

The abstract, limited to 1 page, should include theme (see list below); title; co-authors, last and first name, organization (maximum 500 characters); an introduction, objectives, methods, results, and a conclusion.  

Abstracts may be submitted as part of SAMSA2023 Conference Registration here on this website.
