Information for Academics

The academic participants are a diverse group of people, including MSc and PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors, with expertise in Mathematical fields such as Operations Research, Optimization, Statistics, Numerical Analysis, Computer Sciences, Physics, Finances, Data Analysis, among others.

At the beginning of the week, a representative from each company presents their industrial problem to the participating mathematicians. The participants allocate themselves to a group, each of which works in one of the proposed problems with the industrial partner. The work will be developed in full-time over the next days. On the last day, each group will make a presentation of the results obtained and all participants share suggestions for further work.

After the study group, a report on each problem will be sent to the corresponding firm. Apart from the results obtained during the study group, this report may contain suggestions for further collaboration. Proceedings with the technical reports produced by the participating groups will be published.

There is no participation fee for academics and students. Coffee, lunch and dinner is free for all participants. Moreover, we strive to cover the accommodation and to contribute to the travel expenses of academic and student participants.
