The School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics at NUI Galway is hosting a four day Modelling Workshop from June 6th to 9th. Participants will take part in team-based modelling of real-world, industry-driven problems, supported with training and small group study sessions. Mentoring will be provided by experienced researchers.

The workshop is primarily aimed at postgraduate and early career researchers with a scientific or engineering background. Funding will be provided by MI-NET, the Mathematics for Industry Network, to support their participation.

Participation by undergraduate students is also welcome, with some limited funding provided by the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Applied Mathematics.

The workshop participants will work in small groups on problems posed by industry partners. Current problems being considered include

  • Optimising rainfall radar system for a meteorological service;
  • Simulating river flows;
  • Modelling medical devices.

The workshop will also feature sessions on developing skills in scientific computing, and presentation and communication skills.

General queries relating to the workshop should be directed to

Registration is free, but is required.

The workshop takes place the week before the European Study Group with Industry 128, organised by MACSI at the University of Limerick. The modelling week will be an excellent preparation for ESGI128.
