114th European Study Group Mathematics with Industry

The Study Group Mathematics with Industry 2016 invites companies to submit problems The Study Group Mathematics with Industry (SWI) is a combined industrial/academic workshop where mathematics is used to tackle problems presented by companies and other organisations outside academia. Roughly between fifty and eighty mathematicians, both from industry and academia, gather during the week to collaborate intensively on industrial problems. The format follows the original Oxford model Oxford model, dating back to 1968, which is used worldwide in similar study groups. Companies present a selection of problems on the Monday. The participants devote the entire week to solving these problems in smaller groups. During the week groups maintain contact during with the problem owner to ensure that their efforts stay targeted at the problems posed by the companies. All groups present their work on the Friday morning. Reporting after the week is done through a popular proceedings (written by a professional technical writer and targeted at a general audience) as well as scientific proceedings (written by the participating mathematicians and targeted at a technical audience). The 2016 edition of the Dutch SWI will be held 25-29 January at Radboud University Nijmegen.

Companies that wish to pose a problem to SWI 2016 are invited to contact Professor Eric Cator (e.cator@science.ru.nl, phone +31 24 3653140) or Dr. Ross Kang (r.kang@math.ru.nl, phone +31 24 3653226).
