2017 Industrial Problem Solving Workshop

  • Start Date: 08/07/2017
  • End Date: 08/11/2017

Centre de Recherches Mathématiques


The aim of the Industrial Problem Solving Workshops are to create a mutually beneficial link between researchers in industry and academic mathematicians. Research workers with industrial and commercial concerns are invited to present one of their current technical problems. Leading specialists from the academic community study these problems in teams during the week-long workshop, and present the results of their study back to the industrial participants at the end of the week.

Problems can come from a wide variety of subject areas, but should be amenable to mathematical modelling and analysis.


These workshops:

*Foster contacts between academia and industry, often leading to long-term research collaborations Introduce challenging new research areas with a direct bearing on physical problems to academics and their graduate students.

*Develop highly qualified personnel from the participation of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

*Provide Canadian industry with new ideas and approaches to solving current technical problems.


Problems considered at IPSW are chosen by the organizing committee. Selected companies may be asked to pay a small fee to help offset some of the costs of the workshop.
