Workshops on Industrial Mathematics

We endeavor to actively change the nature and intensity of cooperation between mathematicians and contracting parties. For this reason we have started a series of workshops, creating a platform for cooperation between people from industry, business and science, including graduate students of the sciences interested in the applications of mathematics.

Mathematical Modeling of Industrial Problems

Warsaw, March - May 2011

The goal of the workshop is to familiarize graduate students with methods typical for Industrial Mathematics. To achieve this goal the students will be given the opportunity to work on problems faced by companies, which can be effectively solved by mathematical methods. The workshop is intended to enrich the educational offer for the stidents of mathematics and prepare the participants to work in various branches of economy.

We are now seeking Polish companies coping with problems which can be solved with the methods of industrial mathematics. In an ideal scenario, we would expect a representative of the company to describe the problem at the beginning of the workshop and be available to answer questions which may arise during work on the problem.

More information can be found in the Workshop Leaflet (in Polish).

EMS School on Industrial Mathematics

Będlewo, October 2010

The School took place between 11th and 18th October 2010. in the IM PAN Conference Center in Będlewo. The school was organized in cooperation with Mathematical Center for Science and Technology, Stefan Banach International Mathematical Center (Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences), Hugo Steinhaus Center (Dept. of Fundamental Studies, Wrocław University of Technology) and the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Mechanics of the University of Warsaw, with the support of the Mathematical Committee of the Polish Academy of Sciences. The school was also a part of the activities of the European Mathematical Society.

Delivered lectures:

Apart from lectures, workshop sessions were also held, devoted to finding solutions for practical industrial problems. The problems were presented at the beginning of the school. Next, the attendees were divided into teams working on particular problems. The results of their works are described in the reports below:
