The Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) and its partners are committed to connecting the public and private sectors to the expertise in mathematical sciences research at the ten PIMS universities. These bridges are built with events such as the Industrial Problem Solving Workshops and Mathematical Modelling in Industry Workshops. The IPSW and MMIW apply the latest advances in the mathematical sciences to current, real-world issues in industrial processes. PIMS applies mathematics to topics such as seismic and medical imaging, financial mathematics, and complex fluids through a variety of events, including summer schools, cross-industrial meetings and Industrial Short Courses. In Calgary, the PIMS/Shell Lunchbox Lectures enable busy professionals to learn the latest developments from PIMS scientists.
