Workshop on Iterative Approximation of Fixed Points

in the framework of


19th International Symposium on Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing

Timisoara, Romania

September 21 – 24, 2017

Workshop deadlines

+ Submission of papers:July 25, 2017 (hard deadline)
+ Notification of acceptance: August 10, 2017
+ Registration: September 1, 2017
+ Final paper: September 1, 2017
+ Revised papers for post-proceedings: November, 2017

Workshop Co-Chairs

+ Vasile Berinde, Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, Technical Univ. of Cluj-Napoca, North University Center at Baia Mare, Romania
+ Ștefan Mărușter, Department of Computer Science, West Univ. of Timisoara, Romania
+ Ioan A Rus, Department of Mathematics, Univ. “Babes-Bolyai”, Cluj-Napoca, Romania


The workshop seeks to gather together scientists working in the field of Fixed Point Theory with special emphasis on the iterative methods for fixed point approximation. We hope that it will highlight the most recent advances in various branches of this area and will be an opportunity to exchange ideas and new results.


Proposed list of topics, not limited to:
+ Fixed point theory for various classes of contractive type operators.
+ Convergence and stability of fixed point iterative algorithms
+ Ulam-Hyers stability and fixed points
+ Applications of fixed point theory

Paper Submission

Papers (up to 8 pages in the two-column format) or extended abstracts (up to 2 pages) must be electronically submitted using the submission system accessible setup on EasyChair.


The papers accepted for presentation will be included in a locally edited proceedings (electronic version on a memory stick).

Extended versions of the papers accepted and presented at the workshop will be considering to be published as a special issue in the Mathematics and Computer Science Annals of the West University of Timisoara or SCPE – Scalable Computing: Practice and Experience (indexed by SCOPUS).

Other possibilities for publication will be formulated soon after the workshop.
