ECMI Modelling Week 2014

(August 24 - 31, 2014)

In the last week of August 2014, the IFIM hosts the  ECMI-Modelling Week 2014.
This event, for which more than 60 mathematics students  from ECMI institutions in all European countries come together with academic supervisors and representatives from industry, is taking place annually at varying locations in Europe. Students (typically at the level of Masters degree courses) work together in groups on projects defined and supervised jointly by academic and industrial cooperation partners, and thus find out how mathematics contributes to the solution of currently relevant industrial problems.

After arriving on Sunday, the student participants will be presented a number of problems from various application contexts and form teams that are going to tackle one of the problems during the following week. Together with an instructor, they have to understand the problem sufficiently well to decide on the fundamental modelling approach (or possibly to try out more than one approach). After that, the actual model will have to be developed and a solution method has to be devised and implemented, using MATLAB, C, C++ or other languages or packages. After five days  of working, learning (and also some fun) students and instructors present their results to all other participants, instructors as well as representatives from industrial partners and ECMI institutions. Finally, each group prepares a report on the assigned problem and its solution.
