Jointly organized with the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.
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.
Selected students will be housed on the Minnesota campus and provided with
per diem for meals. They will be reimbursed for travel expenses up to a limit.
Students will work in teams of up to six students under the guidance of an industry mentor.
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
also 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 workshop.
