Pics! Program! Attendees!

Ji-Huan He has a blog post with a few photographs taken in an auditorium at Shanghai Donghua University. Original Chinese [Poof! Broken link] or Google's English translation. We reproduce them below, however, with embedded captions. Click any of them for a larger version.

This seems to be the official website of the event. From there we took the following two documents and re-hosted them on Scribd.

Program ISND 2010

Invited Lectures

They have subjected Prof. Yang, one of the invited opening speakers, to the indignity of appending "China" to "Taiwan". How rude:

Ciann-Dong Yang
Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics
National Cheng Kung University, Tainan 701, Taiwan, China

Although there's no comprehensive guest list that I can see, many attendees names can be found in the program.

There is a list of mini-symposia:

Mini-Symposium on Applications of fractional calculus in different areas of sciences
Chairpersons: Subir Das, H. Jafari
Emails :

Mini-Symposium on Frontiers in Nonlinear Structures in Plasmas
Chairperson: Tarsem Singh Gill

Mini-Symposium on Fractal , Fuzzy and E-infinity
Chairperson: Murdzek Radu [Physics Department, “Al. I. Cuza” University, Romania]

Nonlinear phenomena as well as fractal theory are of interest to engineers, physicists and mathematicians because most physical systems are inherently nonlinear in nature. The aim of this mini-symposium is to bring together scientists working on the development of fractal theory and analysis of fractal structures in correlation with the nonlinear phenomena as well as scientists interested in fuzzy theory and applications.

Mini-Symposium on Application of differential transform method for solving nonlinear engineering problems
Chairperson: M.M. Rashidi

Mini-Symposium on "Identification of nonlinear and fractional systems"
Chairperson: G Draganescu

Mini-Symposium on Computations of stochastic systems
Chairperson: Magdy A. El-Tawil

Mini-Symposium on "multiphase flow"
Chairperson: Lin Jianzhong

Mini-Symposium on Hybrids system dynamics.
Chairperson: Katica (Stevanovic) Hedrih

Mini-symposium on Exp-function Method and its Applications
Chairpersons: S. Zhang and Changbum Chun
Emails: /

Mini-symposium on "Turbulence models and their application for analysis of combustion and heat transfer processes."
Chairperson : Valery Sherbaum

Mini-symposium on the Homotopy Perturbation Method
Chairperson: D.D. Ganji

Mini-Symposium on Neural Networks and Their Applications
Chairperson: Tingwen Huang

Mini-symposium on Electrospun Nanofibers and Applications
Chairpersons: Hao Fong and Santi Maensiri

  1. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Sunday, October 24. Dr. «Strange wrap». Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

    El Naschie says John von Neumann was a great scientist, but suffered from mental ilness, having been driven mad by antisemitism. He likens von Neumann to Dr. Strangelove.

  2. The Great Man is in good shape, apparently.

  3. Regarding Taiwan: China never accepted the independence of Taiwan and still treats it as a part of Chinese territory. Pretty the same is the case of Kosovo - Serbia still treat it and will treat as a part of Serbian territory, no matter what happens.

  4. Ha, they even have a disco ball in the conference room (unless Jason photoshopped the picture), so that Jason's poster for ISND 2010 is more than appropriate. LOL

  5. Oh, but you did photoshop it (also with the beer and the whiskey - is it Johnny Walker Red Label?)! ;)))))

  6. If the special event mentioned at pag.45 of the program has gone well, we will probably see the two organizers become editors of half a dozen of new journals...

  7. I am disgusted by Ji-Huan He and Mohamed El-Naschie's claim about experimental proof of E-infinity theory, referring to the recent experiments by physicists at the Helmholtz center and Oxford university ( This is repeatedly claimed in the two pdf-files above, from the conference.

    I think it is one thing to publish crackpot papers isolated from the scientific community, but it is a much more offensive "crime" to spread lies like this at conferences. This is not acceptable!

    Jason, maybe you should contact the physicists at Hemholtz center and Oxford university to inform them about this distasteful abuse of their work.

  8. Shrink, I wanted to add a light show, pole dancer and a drunk passed out on the floor but they were too difficult so I settled for beer, whiskey and disco ball.

  9. My spelling mistake. Whisky, not Whiskey.

    About Taiwan, Shrink, I didn't mean to take a Taiwan vs. China position. It just seemed rude when they have a Taiwanese special guest to tack "China" on there gratuitously. It's unlikely he added it himself not just politically but as a matter of habit.

    Anonymous 5:10 AM. OMG about page 45! Yes, clearly there will be more work to do.

    H, Yes, that might be a good thing to do.

  10. Jason, I know that you didn't take any position regarding China vs. Taiwan, but I think the political situation force anyone in China to publicly denote Taiwan as part of China's territory. And I think the Taiwanese special guest is aware of that and didn't take it as an insult.

  11. Jason,
    Have you noticed the Sponsors and supporters of this conference
    You find
    A donation of money to the conference is highly appreciated. Please contact with the symposium secretary by email

    Donation of books/journals for exhibition is also welcome.

    Other donations are also considered.

    El naschie could be one of the main funding source for this conference. He is using his money for false celebration to deceive people in Egypt and Arabic countries.

  12. That's funny, isn't it. All the math conferences I've been to have been free to me, or even paid a stipend.

  13. Shrink, If Prof. Yang had a sense of humor, he could have thanked his hosts for acknowledging Taiwanese sovereignty over China. ;)
