ab: Summary: This chapter will contribute to the discussion in one of the two
symposia held at ICTMA-15, in particular the symposium about the role
of theory in the research about mathematical modelling. First, the
necessity to discuss theoretical approaches in the research about
mathematical modelling and the idea of the symposium will be pointed
out. Subsequently in the second part of the chapter the role of theory
in research will be described more differentially. Finally, the
contributions to the symposium are classified concerning the role of
theory in the theoretical approach. The chapter closes with open
questions still remaining, which may guide future symposia on the
topic.
