The Study Group will folow the usual format of presentations from industry introducing a problem on the first day, followed by intensive work on the problem by groups during the next three days and presentations by the academics on the final day. A report on each problem will be prepared after the meeting.
These can be in any area suitable to a mathematical treatment. In the past these have varied from micro-wave cooking to air traffic control; from the incubation of penguin eggs to the evaluation of marketing strategies.
Something about the pictures
The local organisers work along side the Smith Institute to attract novel industrial and technological problems to ESGI, and to ensure that appropriate mathematical expertise attends the conference.
Typical details of minimum deliverables, IPR arrangements etc. are available as a printable document. PDF version of document lifted from Bristol webpage with Eddie Wilson's permission.
Companies interested in presenting a problem should contact Heather Tewkesbury, or another member of the organising committee, directly. Each company pays a problem fee of £3,000 + VAT which contributes to covering the costs of the week, preparing materials in advance and writing final reports. Individual industrialists will need to pay their own travel, accommodation and food costs.
Those wishing to participate in problem solving are very welcome to attend with free accommodation. However, registration is required. Postdoctoral researchers, PhD students and Masters students are particularly encouraged to participate.
