Date: 28 January - 1 Februari 2019
Location: congress center WICC in Wageningen
Organization: Jaap Molenaar (WUR), Vivi Rothschäfer (RUL) en Alessandro di Bucchianico (TU/e)

The Study Group Mathematics with Industry (SWI) is a combined industrial–academic week-long workshop sponsored by NWO. Roughly seventy mathematicians work in groups on problems submitted by companies. Companies present a selection of problems on Monday. The participants devote the entire week to studying these problems in smaller groups, and presents their results on Friday.
SWI is ideal for companies that are new to cooperation with academia. The event is often a first step towards a fruitful long-term collaboration between companies and academia.

Program-outline:
Monday morning: presentation of open problems by companies
Monday afternoon: initial modelling discussions of problem owners with participants
Tuesday - Thursday: whole day sessions of the teams to work on the problems. Meanwhile the problem owners are contacted when needed.
Friday morning: final presentation of the outcomes
After the modelling week: writing of two types of reports: a. popularized version for a broad audience, b. scientific reports containing the mathematical approaches and the conclusions.

NMC 2019

Location: Congrescentrum Koningshof, Veldhoven
Date: 23-24 April 2019
Organizer: Prof.dr. W.H.A. Schilders

We are organising a mini-symposium during the annual congress of the Royal Dutch Mathematical Society (KWG), which is organized in close collaboration with Platform Wiskunde Nederland (PWN) and NWO. The mini-symposium will on the one hand increase the visibility of 4TU.AMI, as it is in parallel with competing sessions by the gravity programs Networks and QSC (QuSoft), and cluster sessions (pairs of clusters organize mini-symposia, inspired by the Sectorplan Beta). On the other hand, the mini-symposium will highlight an important new development in computational science and engineering, namely the concept of digital twins, and the associated use of machine learning connected to data. We would like to emphasize the mathematical aspects of this development, and will concentrate on neural networks in this mini-symposium, as this is at the basis of this new development.

Equadiff 2019

Location: Leiden
Date: 8-12 July 2019

Study Group Mathematics with Industry  

SWI2019

Date: 28 January - 1 Februari 2019
Location: congress center WICC in Wageningen
Organization: Jaap Molenaar (WUR), Vivi Rothschäfer (RUL) en Alessandro di Bucchianico (TU/e)

The Study Group Mathematics with Industry (SWI) is a combined industrial–academic week-long workshop sponsored by NWO. Roughly seventy mathematicians work in groups on problems submitted by companies. Companies present a selection of problems on Monday. The participants devote the entire week to studying these problems in smaller groups, and presents their results on Friday.
SWI is ideal for companies that are new to cooperation with academia. The event is often a first step towards a fruitful long-term collaboration between companies and academia.

Program-outline:
Monday morning: presentation of open problems by companies
Monday afternoon: initial modelling discussions of problem owners with participants
Tuesday - Thursday: whole day sessions of the teams to work on the problems. Meanwhile the problem owners are contacted when needed.
Friday morning: final presentation of the outcomes
After the modelling week: writing of two types of reports: a. popularized version for a broad audience, b. scientific reports containing the mathematical approaches and the conclusions.

NMC 2019

Location: Congrescentrum Koningshof, Veldhoven
Date: 23-24 April 2019
Organizer: Prof.dr. W.H.A. Schilders

We are organising a mini-symposium during the annual congress of the Royal Dutch Mathematical Society (KWG), which is organized in close collaboration with Platform Wiskunde Nederland (PWN) and NWO. The mini-symposium will on the one hand increase the visibility of 4TU.AMI, as it is in parallel with competing sessions by the gravity programs Networks and QSC (QuSoft), and cluster sessions (pairs of clusters organize mini-symposia, inspired by the Sectorplan Beta). On the other hand, the mini-symposium will highlight an important new development in computational science and engineering, namely the concept of digital twins, and the associated use of machine learning connected to data. We would like to emphasize the mathematical aspects of this development, and will concentrate on neural networks in this mini-symposium, as this is at the basis of this new development.

Equadiff 2019

Location: Leiden
Date: 8-12 July 2019
