Mathematics with Industry invites companies to submit problems

If you could borrow a group of talented mathematicians for a week, what would you have them do? The Study Group Mathematics with Industry is a combined industrial-academic workshop where mathematics is used to tackle problems presented by companies and other organizations outside academia. Roughly sixty mathematicians, both from industry and academia, gather during the week to collaborate intensively on industrial problems.

The format of the workshop follows the original Oxford model, dating back to 1968. Six companies present their question on Monday morning. At the end of the week, all groups present their results. The participants devote the entire week to solving the problems in groups. Participating in the SWI leads to new insights for the company or confirmation of company insights by experts. The week also allows companies to become acquainted with students and evaluate them for future employment.

More information can be found at the SWI2019 pages.
