The American Mathematical Society and the African Mathematical Union are supporting it.
School of Science executive dean Dr Basil Marasinghe said the conference was expected to attract more than 100 international participants.
“A significant number of top-level mathematicians from all over the world including those from Oxford University and Harvard University are expected to arrive in PNG,” Marasinghe said.
They will present papers and join in discussions on the theme: Contemporary developments in mathematical sciences as tools for scientific and technological transformation of PNG.
Dr Samuel Kopamu, the chief oganiser of the conference, said not only the latest developments in pure and applied mathematics would be presented but more importantly their applications in a number of other fields would be discussed.
“Therefore, this conference will be attractive not only for mathematicians but also researchers, administrators, engineers and mathematics teachers of secondary schools or tertiary institutions, postgraduate and undergraduate students from almost every other field,” he said.
