The 2018 Mathematical Problems in Industry Workshop will be held June 25-29 at Claremont Graduate University.
Mathematical Problems in Industry (MPI) is a problem solving workshop that attracts leading applied mathematicians, scientists, and junior researchers (graduate students, postdocs, and junior faculty) from universities, industry, and national laboratories. During the workshop, engineers and scientists from industry interact with academic participants on problems of interest to their companies.
The workshop is a lively, five-day interaction on problems of interest to science and industry. On the first day, industry representatives present their problems to the whole group. These problems vary widely in nature from those requiring basic physical modeling to those requiring significant simulation, computation, or data analysis. For the rest of the week, workshop participants break up into small working groups consisting of senior faculty and attending scientists, graduate students, and industrial representatives to discuss and tackle the problems in an informal setting. On the last day of the workshop, an academic participant from each group presents the results obtained and discusses possible future directions. A written report detailing the progress made during the workshop is prepared subsequently and sent to the industry representatives.
The MPI Organizing Committee is committed to working with representatives from industry to strengthen academic-industrial ties on research challenges. The workshop also seeks to provide a stimulating and engaging collaborative environment for students and faculty to work together and explore innovative approaches to novel real-world problems.
