The 48th European Study group Mathematics with industry
Wiskunde met de Industrie) will be held from March 15th-19th 2004 at
the Faculty of Electrical
Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science of Delft
University of Technology.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together mathematicians and
commercial companies to tackle industrial problems. The workshop is
supported by ITW (Industrial and Applied Mathematics), STW
(Stichting Technische Wetenschappen) and NWO/EW, and ECMI (European
Mathematics in Industry).
is no registration fee for participants attending the workshop.
The organisation hopes that
many participants will stay in one of the hotels in Delft, since
will create a good and creative atmosphere. Some funds are available to
travel or accommodation for those unable to find any other source of
This support is limited and must be requested by sending an email to
organising committee (firstname.lastname@example.org

At the beginning of the week, a
representative from each company
invited (5-7 companies in all) presents their industrial problem to the
participating mathematicians (approximately 60 or so). The academic
participants then allocate
themselves to the groups who work full-time on each problem over the
three days. By the last day, each group of mathematicians must ensure
their ideas are developed enough to collate them into a final
to the other study-group participants. The collaboration does not
end at this point as the mathematicians must also write an article for
proceedings, which can act as a formal record of the work done for the
company. This provides the possibility of encouraging further research,
to new links between industry and academia.

a problem. Almost all industrial problems have some mathematical aspect
