Call for Participation Minisymposium on Mathematics Against Crime 2019

We are happy to invite everyone to submit original research to the 1st Minisymposium on Mathematics Against Crime (MACri), which will be held as part of CNMAC 2019 ( in Uberlândia, Minas Gerais, Brazil, September 16-20, 2019.

Motivated by the increasing importance of developing new technologies to prevent crimes, the MACri minisymposium brings a forum to discuss recent advances in computational and applied mathematics to analyze, model, and forecast criminal activities in urban areas. The minisymposium aims to disseminate current work in the field as well as to foster new research and collaborations.

We invite contributions in all areas of crime analysis, including (but not limited to):

  • dynamics of crime patterns;
  • criminal networks;
  • crime modeling;
  • dynamics and structure of transnational crime;
  • modeling of criminal hotspots;
  • crime prediction;
  • spatial and temporal regularity of crimes;
  • data science for crime analysis;
  • dynamics of cyber-crime;
  • criminal events and their relation with social-economic factors;
  • criminal events and their relation with urban infrastructure;
  • human mobility and crime;
  • visualization of criminal data;

Important Dates

  • Abstract submission: July 31, 2019
  • Notification of acceptance: August 15, 2019
