NEW! Dear colleagues! We invite you to take part in the 12th International Workshop on Inductive Modeling IWIM2021, see http://www.iwim.irtc.org.ua/openconf.php. IWIM2021 will be held in Lviv, at the Lviv National Technical University "Lvivska Politekhnika", in conjunction with the host Conference "Computer Science and Information Technologies" CSIT2021 (http://csit.ieee.org.ua/ ), both are supported by IEEE. All submitted papers will be reviewed. Accepted papers will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library and sent for indexing to the databases SCOPUS and WoS. Updated versions of the best papers will be included in the book, which will be published in Springer's Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing (AISC) series.

Specialization and Results of ITIM DepartmentInductive modelingis a selforganizing process of evolutional transition from initial data to explicit mathematical models reflecting those functioning patterns of the simulated objects and systems which are implicitly contained in available experimental, trial or statistical data.The investigation strategy of the ITIM department covers a complete cycle of scientific research in the inductive modeling area:
Starting from 1998, when the Department has been established, there was developed:
The tasks of modeling of the following processes were solved:
