# 2017 Graduate Math Modelling in Industry Workshop

## Details

The Graduate Math Modelling in Industry Workshop is designed to provided graduate students in the mathematical sciences, and qualified advanced undergraduates, with training and first-hand experience in industrial research. This one week event in Winnipeg will focus on team work to tackle specific projects in mathematical and statistical modelling of industrial process, with an emphasis on the development of young researchers.

This year's workshop is a joint project of Le Centre de recherches mathÃ©matiques, the Fields Institute, and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences, and funded through NSERC's support of the Institutes Innovation Platform. Students participating in the graduate modelling workshop are encouraged to apply for the 2017 Industrial Problem Solving Workshop in Montreal, scheduled for the following week of August 7-11.
