Math Modelling in Industry Workshop

Registration Deadline: June 16th, 2017

Description

The Graduate Math Modelling in Industry Workshop is designed to provided graduate students in the mathematical sciences, and qualified advanced undergraduates, with training and first-hand experience in industrial research. This one week event in Winnipeg will focus on team work to tackle specific projects in mathematical and statistical modelling of industrial process, with an emphasis on the development of young researchers.

This year's workshop is a joint project of AARMS, CANSSI, CRM, the Fields Institute, and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences, and funded through NSERC's support of the Institutes Innovation Platform. Students participating in the graduate modelling workshop are encouraged to apply for the 2017 Industrial Problem Solving Workshop in Montreal, scheduled for the following week of August 7-11.

 

Eligibility

Applicants must be current graduate students in an MSc or PhD program in the mathematical sciences at a Canadian institution during the period of the workshop. In exceptional cases, strong undergraduate students will be considered.

 

Logistics

The event will start with a meet and greet on the evening of Sunday, July 30th. The workshop starts first thing on the morning of Monday, July 31st, and will conclude on the afternoon of Saturday, August 5th.

Short courses on mathematical modelling and use of scientific software for calculation and simulation will be held throughout the week, with a focus on applying to specific problems that arise in industrial settings. Team work on the problems and group interaction will to take place throughout the week. A wrap up on Saturday will include presentations of the work performed by each team.

Please see the event webpage for more up to date information.
