Study Group Mathematics with Industry
Does your company have problems of a mathematical nature but no time to look into them? Would you like to strengthen your contacts in the academic world? Would you like to meet mathematicians whom you could offer a job?
Then submit your problem description to the Study Group Mathematics with Industry (SWI 2020)!
Then a group of 5-10 mathematicians will look into your problem for a whole week and present a solution on Friday.
The following is a sample of the problems submitted by more than 60 companies in 19 earlier editions:
- What is a fair price for a new financial derivative? (ING)
- Can we forecast a pension fund’s expected reserves 5 years from now? (Ortec Finance)
- When will each EU-country have a perfect mix of all the different euro coins? (DNB)
- Can “game theory” be used to understand the results of electricity auctions? (Statkraft)
Participation costs only €1.750 thanks to sponsoring by NWO.
SWI 2020 will take place at Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Tilburg from 27 January to 31 January 2020.
With best regards,
Dr. Bram van den Broek (Fontys)
Dr. Alessandro Di Bucchianico (TU Eindhoven)
Dr. Vivi Rottschäfer (Universiteit Leiden)
