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.
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.
Workshop Outline: Posing of problems by the 6 industry mentors. Half-hour introductory talks in the morning followed by a welcoming lunch. In the afternoon, the teams work with the mentors. The goal at the end of the day is to get the students to start working on the projects.
