An Event Not to be Missed
MYHIMS-C 2021 Virtual Conference and Forum will be held from 17th to 19th August 2021 with the theme “Emerging Trends in Mathematics and Statistics: Empowering Industrial Innovation.”
MYHIMS-C 2021 aims to enhance collaborations between academia, technology providers and industry players
- to develop talents and maximize resources in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
- to innovate new technology and solutions using mathematical and statistical tools.
Emerging Trends in Mathematics and Statistics: Empowering Industrial Innovation
The International Seminar on Mathematics in Industry 2021 (ISMI2021) is a virtual conference that brings Quadruple Helix model of collaboration and synergy among academia, government agencies, industry, and community. It aims to disseminate knowledge and share the experiences and research on all aspects of industrial mathematics and statistics.
Since 2013, ISMI has established itself as a multidisciplinary platform that enables the mathematical scientist and industry practitioners to discuss their experiences in emerging developments, innovations as well as challenges encountered in the real industrial problems. Following from ISMI2013, ISMI2017, and ISMI-ICTAS2018, closer ties have been forged between mathematical scientists and industry partners in Malaysia through various successful project collaborations.
This year, ISMI2021 will be held on 17th to 19th August 2021 with the theme “Mathematical Thinking in Industrial Innovation”.
ISMI2021 is organized by UTM-Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (UTM-CIAM) and Department of Mathematical Sciences, Faculty of Science, UTM in collaboration with MyHIMS Solutions PLT. This year will mark a new history for ISMI where it is colocated with MYHIMS-C 2021.
We look forward to seeing you online – at ISMI2021.
Scope of Seminar
The conference will cover following broad areas of research and development in Mathematics for Industrial and Real Applications but not limited to
- Applied Mathematics
- Theoretical Statistics
- Applied Statistics
- Operational Research
- Computational Mathematics
Full papers will be reviewed and considered for publication in the SCOPUS Indexed Journals and ESCI-WoS Indexed Journals:
- ASM Science Journal
- Journal Akademia Baru
- Malaysian Journal of Fundamental and Applied Sciences (MJFAS)
About ISM-V 2021
Institut Statistik Malaysia, ISM is a leading statistical society in Malaysia with a long history of nearly 40 years in tradition since its establishment in 1981.
ISM mission is to promote proper practice, propagation, and dissemination of statistical knowledge for the benefit of society. Our members are diverse , associated with academic institutions, Department of Statistics Malaysia, Bank Negara Malaysia, various government agencies and industries.
ISM flagship event is the biennial ISM International Statistical Conference, where participants from Malaysia and across the globe meet to exchange and explore ideas and to network. The first ISM, ISM-1 was conducted in 2012 at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). Other ISM conference were hosted previously by Universiti Malaysia Pahang, Universiti Malaya and Sunway University for the second, third and fourth series respectively. The fifth ISM makes its way once more to Johor Bahru where UTM play host to this important event, ISM-V.
This time ISM International Statistical Conference, ISM-V is broadcasting to you for the first time on 17-19 August 2021, virtually. See you then!
Scope of Seminar
The ISM-V organiser cordially invites both academicians and practitioners to take part on the first virtual conference of ISM, focusing on, but not limited to:
Statistical theory, distribution theory, probability models, stochastic process, statistical inference, prediction analysis, survival analysis, biostatistics, bioinformatics, epidemiology, reliability theory, quality control, sampling, statistical computing, Bayesian analysis, time series, econometrics, demography, robust methods, Monte-Carlo methods, statistical education, financial mathematics, forecasting, actuarial science, environmental statistics, economic statistics, official statistics, multivariate analysis, spatial analysis, directional data analysis and related topics.
Presentations and paper submissions that address the ISM-V’s scopes are welcome.

Sustainable Farming: Monitoring Catchment Pollution
Many agricultural projects begin by making sense of data, which has been collected in a (sometimes) arbitrary fashion without some real goal or purpose, and most likely the reason for its collection is not very clear. It is very important to know what is wanted and what is needed to understand before data is assembled. Therefore, having a pre-determined model is important.
In many circumstances quite basic statistical techniques are used by practitioners, who are often unfamiliar with the recent agricultural systems-techniques now available internationally to understand, use and process this data. Often few attempts are made to track “cause- to effect”,

Testing in Models That Are Not True
The starting point of my presentation is the apparently popular idea that in order to do hypothesis testing (and more generally frequentist model-based inference) we need to believe that the model is true, and the model assumptions need to be fulfilled. I will argue that this is a misconception. Models are, by their very nature, not “true” in reality. Mathematical results secure favourable characteristics of inference in an artificial model world in which the model assumptions are fulfilled. For using a model in reality we need to ask what happens if the model is violated in a “realistic” way. One key approach is to model a situation in which certain model assumptions of, e.g., the model-based test that we want to apply, are violated, in order to find out what happens then. This, somewhat inconveniently, depends strongly on what we assume, how the model assumptions are violated, whether we make an effort to check them, how we do that, and what alternative actions we take if we find them wanting. I will discuss what we know and what we can’t know regarding the appropriateness of the models that we “assume”, and how to interpret them appropriately, including new results on conditions for model assumption checking to work well, and on untestable assumptions.

Intensifying Tech Intensity: Staying Relevant and Succeeding in The 4th Industrial Revolution
Data and AI is accelerating the 4th Industrial Revolution, but COVID-19 has forced upon us digital transformation much sooner than expected. While our customers today need to continue run their matured business efficiently and successfully, it is no longer an option for them to continuously embark on bold and rapid innovation to seek new disrupt or protect against being disrupted. This requires companies to leverage on the democratized digital platforms to enable them to engage the modern customers effectively and optimally, while constantly exploring new business models in ways that manages the risks. In addition, the people need to have the right skills to harness the value of data using the digital platforms. The core body of knowledge in STEM plays a central role data science that enables organizations to unlock the power of Data and AI. With the fast-changing use of technology, it is important for all of us to strengthen the relatively timeless fundamentals, and supplement these with applied skills that we need to constantly learn to be successful in this new world. This interplay of technology adoption and skilling is we term as “Tech Intensity” which is needed by all organizations to stay relevant and succeed in this new world.

Innovation: The Inevitable Process
This presentation discusses about the very meaning of innovation, understating its relevance and implementation in the current scenario. It also shares some typical types of innovations and example study cases with actual market experience sharing along the lines of Innovation in products, services, marketing, business models, process as well as organizational. Indeed, innovation is inevitable, hence, innovate or you will evaporate.
