The IMA is holding a 10-day workshop on Mathematical Modeling in Industry. The workshop is designed to provide graduate students and qualified advanced undergraduates with first hand experience in industrial research.

Format

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.

Projects and Industry Mentors

There will be 6 teams participating in the workshop. The following industry scientists have agreed to participate as mentors.

Application Procedure (Application deadline has passed)

Graduate students and advanced undergraduates are invited to apply. An application form must be submitted to the IMA. In addition, two letters of recommendation are required; one must be from the student's advisor, director of graduate studies, or department chair. Prerequisites vary and depend on the project, but computational skills are important.

The IMA will cover local living expenses but not travel (IMA Participating Institution may use their PI funds for this purpose). Selection criteria will be based on background and statement of interest, as well as geographic and institutional diversity. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to apply. Applications must be completed by April 15 2005 for full consideration. Early submissions are encouraged. Successful applicants will be notified by April 30, 2005.

Completed application forms and Letters of Recommendation should be addressed to "Math Modeling Committee" and emailed to mm-applications@ima.umn.edu. Text, pdf or postscript files are prefered.
