The IMA is holding a 10-day workshop on Mathematical Modeling in Industry. This event will take place at CIMAT in Guanajuato, Mexico. 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.

Financial Support
Selected Canadian and US participants will be provided with travel support by PIMS and IMA. All participants will be provided with room and board at CIMAT.

Application Procedure
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.

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 16, 2010 for full consideration. Early submissions are encouraged. Successful applicants will be notified by April 30, 2010.

For a complete application, please fill out the application form and have two letters of recommendation sent to "Math Modeling Committee" at mm-applications@ima.umn.edu. Plain text or pdf are prefered.

On the application form you will be asked to indicate your top 3 project choices. You must submit 3 different project choices!
