Huge Mathematical Modeling in Industry event at UCalgary, June 2012

Submitted by ccunning on Fri, 02/10/2012 - 9:40am.
Hosted by PIMS and IMA.

The Institute for Mathematics and Applications and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences are holding a 10-day workshop on Mathematical Modeling in Industry at the University of Calgary, 18--27 June 2012. The workshop is designed to provide graduate students and qualified advanced undergraduates with first hand experience in industrial research.

Students will work in teams of up to 6 students under the guidance of a mentor from industry. The mentor will help guide the students in the modeling process, analysis and computational work associated with a real-world industrial problem. A progress report from each team will be scheduled during the period. In addition, each team will be expected to make an oral final presentation and submit a written report at the end of the 10-day period.

Industrial Partners: Boeing; Center for Advanced Radiotherapy Technologies, UCSD; Corning; Hampson-Russell Software & Services, a CGGVeritas Company; National Institute of Standards and Technology; Royal Bank of Canada.
