The International Conference on Mathematics, Statistics and Their Applications (ICMSA) is a series of conferences initiated by the Indonesia-Malaysia- Thailand Growth Triangle (IMT-GT) formed in 1993 by the governments of Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand to accelerate economic transformation in the region. Since its first event in 2005, ICMSA has been held for 11 times in various places in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Thailand. The Department of Mathematics of Syiah Kuala University invites you to join the 12th ICMSA conference that will be held in Banda Aceh, Indonesia on October 4-6, 2016. This conference will be held in conjunction with the 6th Annual International Conference (AIC) that is the regular international conference held by Syiah Kuala University every year.

All interested researchers are invited to contribute in the conference in the form of 10-15 minutes paper presentations. The topics should relate to the fields of Mathematics, Statistics, and their applications. The accepted and registered papers of ICMSA2016 will be published in the ICMSA2016 Proceedings that are indexed in IEEE XPlore and SCOPUS. The IEEE Indonesia Section provides technical support for the publications. The proceedings will publish original contributions written in English in the form of full- length papers in the fields of Mathematics, Statistics and their applications that should be submitted through EDAS.

Focus areas include the following fields but not limited to:   

  • Mathematical Logic and Set Theory
  • Discrete Mathematics including Combinatorics and Graph Theory
  • Algebraic Structures
  • Linear and Multilinear Algebra and Matrix Theory
  • Category Theory, Homological Algebra and K-theory
  • Lie Groups, Lie Algebras and Representation Theory
  • Real and Complex Analysis
  • Functional Analysis, Operator Theory and Operator Algebra
  • Geometry and Topology
  • Differential Equations, Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory
  • Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing
  • Statistics, Probability Theory and Stochastic Processes
  • Operations Research, Mathematical Programming and Game Theory
  • Computer Science
  • Applications in science such as Engineering, Economics and Information Theory, etc.
  • Mathematics Education



The accepted and registered papers of ICMSA2016 will be published in the ICMSA2016 Proceedings that is indexed in IEEE XPlore and SCOPUS. Topics for submitted reports include research reports, development work, reviews of the literature, and research activities. The objectives are to publish and promote research contributions and innovative work in mathematics, statistics, and their applications.The following guidelines are intended to help you make the most of the space you have available in the ICMSA2016 Proceedings.

  • We have designed a Microsoft Word template for ICMSA 2016 papers to help you fit your manuscript to the requirements described in this document. This template determines the basic structure for the paper and contains document settings such as fonts, page layout, special formatting, and styles. The template file is available from the ICMSA 2016 Website (
  • The manuscript must be written in English and should not exceed 8 pages. You are required to submit your paper through the EDAS in Word (.doc) or Latex(.tex) format’
  • You must also complete the Author Submission form through the EDAS.


Note: Only papers which meet the instructions to authors will be published in the proceedings. Those papers which also satisfy the refereeing process will be identified as such. Authors whose papers meet the requirements to be submitted in the journals will be notified and will have follow up process that depends on each journal.

Editorial Policy:
Papers must contain review articles and the results of original scientific research. Review for publication will be done by multiple independent reviewers specializing in the relevant field(s). Such reports and articles include those containing substantial supported theories, innovative work, substantial experimental results, and useful and constructive discussion, and review articles. An electronic journal is provided on the website ( The Editors reserve the right to require revision of the submitted manuscript as a condition for final acceptance.

Submission of Manuscripts:
Manuscripts must be written in English and submitted as one original file in Microsoft Word or LaTex through the EDAS management system. Revised manuscripts must be resubmitted.


Manuscript Preparation Guide:
