Workshop on Mathematical solutions for Industry: Success stories and perspectives

27-28 October, 2016
Madrid, Spain

Scope of the workshop | Mathematical technology provides advanced solutions to diverse problems encountered in companies in the development of their productive activity. The aim of the “Workshop on Mathematical solutions for Industry: Success stories and perspectives” is to promote the transfer of mathematical technology to companies and institutions, showing the technological solutions provided for each industrial sector and contributing, in turn, to the generation of research and development from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Within this event it is planned to present several successful collaboration examples between research groups and companies from the industrial sectors involved:
– Energy and Environment
– Biomedicine, Pharmacy and Health Care
– Economy and Finance
– Information and Communication Technology and Logistics
– Materials, Aeronautics and Automotive

Confirmed speakers include representatives of | Instituto Geológico y Minero de España (IGME), Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM), CICEnergiGUNE, Instituto Ciencias Matemáticas (ICMAT), Universidad del País Vasco/Euskal Herriko Unibersitatea (UPV/EHU), Analistas Financieros Internacionales (AFI), Universidade da Coruña (UDC), Banco de Santander, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos (URJC), Consortium Madrid-MIT M+Visión, Universidad de Valencia (UV), IS3D Engineering, Universidad de les Illes Balears (UIB), Centre Nationale Etudes Spatiales (CNES), Universidade de Vigo (Uvigo), Fundiciones Rey, Universidade de Santiago de Compostela (USC), GKN Driveline and Agencia Estatal de Seguridad Aérea (AESA).

124th European Study Group With Industry

29 August – 2 September, 2016
Rome, Italy

Sportello Matematico per l’Industria Italiana, with the support of MI-Net COST Action, organizes the 124th European Study Group with Industry. The event will take place in Rome from August 29th to September 2nd 2016.
European Study Groups with Industry are events with a well-established international tradition: enterprises and researchers in Applied Mathematics work and brainstorm together to solve real industrial problems. A Study Group represents a great chance for researchers that allows to work on cutting-edge industrial problems, find new connections with industrial partners and explore novel research lines.
The participation to the event is free for Academics. Funds are available to support accommodation costs for a limited number of participant.
All the information concerning the programme of the week, the selected industrial problems, and the registration procedure are available on the event website: www.sportellomatematico.it/ESGI2016
For any further information feel free to contact the organization team esgi2016@sportellomatematico.it.

Call for Nominations of Candidates for The Felix Klein Prize

Nowadays, mathematics often plays the decisive role in finding solutions to numerous technical, economical and organizational problems. In order to encourage such solutions and to reward exceptional research in the area of applied mathematics the EMS decided, in October 1999, to establish the Felix Klein Prize.

The mathematician Felix Klein (1849-1925) is generally acknowledged as a pioneer with regard to the close connection between mathematics and applications which lead to solutions to technical problems.
