**A short description of the Symposium: **Mathematical modeling of technological processes is one of the most difficult tasks. Mathematics is used to solve them: differential equation, their systems and numerical methods.

The symposium is expected to discuss new results of mathematical modeling of basic technological processes, modern methods of describing fluid flow and heat and mass transfer in process equipment, the results of numerical solution of mathematical models.

The symposium can be submitted in the following topics:

- · Mathematical modeling of technological devices
- · Mathematical modeling of heat and mass transfer
- · Modeling of the main processes of chemical technology
- · Mathematical modeling of processes around the dispersed particles
- · Modeling of processes in solid mechanics
- · Modeling processes in system "gas-liquid"
- · Optimization problems of Chemical Technology
- · Modeling of modern problems in chemical engineering
- · Numerical methods for solving mathematical models
- · Numerical modeling of Medical Applications
