Attending the event is free (for more info, please visit


    In our session on "Mathematical methods for sustainability challenges", we welcome papers presenting new theoretical developments, mathematical models and innovative empirical applications to tackle sustainability challenges. Topics include, but are not limited to, mathematical methods tackling the assessment of the three pillars of Sustainable Development: People (social sustainability), Planet (environmental sustainability) and Prosperity (economic sustainability). Theoretical and methodological challenges in understanding the determinants of sustainable development in key sectors (e.g., education, health, justice, water and sanitation, waste, energy, or others) will be welcome too.
