About Université des Mascareignes

Welcome to Mauritius

Mark Twain once wrote, 'Mauritius was made first and then heaven, heaven being copied after Mauritius'. He was right.

Université des Mascareignes (UDM) is the fourth public university in Mauritius. This new tertiary institution in under the aegis of the Ministry of Education and Human Resources, Tertiary Education and Scientific Research.

Founded in 2012 after a merger between the IST (Institut Superieur de Technologie) of Rose-Hill and the Swami Dayanand Institute of Management (SDIM) of Pamplemousses, the ' Université Des Mascareignes (UDM) has some 1,100 students that are currently enrolled in various courses. The UDM provides broad-based education and training to students to fit perfectly into the service sector of the Mauritian economy in business related activities such as International Business Transactions, Distributive and Retail Operations, Financial services, Shipping, Company Operations, Managing Information Systems and ICT operations.

Keynote Speaker

Keynote 1: Publishing Ethics and Author Services


The importance of research publishing can be defined by a simple quote of Gerard Piel, which says "Without publication, science is dead." The first scientific journal was published in 1665 and we have travelled 350 years since then. In the last 20 years, science and reporting of science have undergone revolutionary changes. Computerization and Internet have changed the traditional ways of reading and writing. Hence, it is very important for scientists and students of the sciences in all disciplines to understand the complete process of writing and publishing of scientific paper in good journals. There is also a downside of digital publishing. The principal challenge for publishers is to handle ethical issues and it is of utmost importance for the authors to understand the ethical practices involved in the process.

The talk is designed to provide information on different ethical practices and also on how to make use of various author services for the publishing work.

Keynote 3: Swarm Intelligence: An Intelligent Way of Problem Solving


With the development of advanced technology, computational requirements have become high. Usually, for high computational needs, traditional algorithms become infeasible. In such case, some intelligent way of problem solving is required and swarm intelligence is one of them. Social creatures, like birds, fishes, ants, bees, termites etc, exhibit an intelligent social behavior during the search of food or protecting themselves from predators. This intelligent social behavior is usually, referred as Swarm Intelligence. Swarm Intelligence may be defined as, “When a group of active, dynamic, and stupid (with no inherent knowledge) members tries to solve complex tasks with collaborative, trial and error strategy, then the emerged behavior is known as Swarm Intelligence”. Researchers have always been fascinated with swarm intelligence and applied this to develop some advanced intelligent algorithms to solve the problems where either traditional approaches fail or infeasible to use. Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Ant Colony Optimization (ACO), Artificial Bee Colony Algorithm (ABC), Bacterial Foraging Optimization (BFO) and Spider Monkey Optimization (SMO) are some of the algorithms based on the principles of swarm intelligence. The talk comprises some basic principles of swarm intelligence, and demonstrates how they are applied to develop intelligent algorithms, particularly, PSO and SMO.
