SWI (Study Group Mathematics with Industry) is looking for mathematicians to work on challenges provided by industry from 23 to 27 January 2017 at Amsterdam Science Park!
During SWI, you will work for one week on a real-life problem presented by one of the participating companies. Representative of the companies present the problems on Monday. The rest of the week is devoted to studying this problem in teams at the event location. The teams present their work on Friday. Participants from earlier editions describe SWI as highly interesting and challenging, and many return the next year. An overview of the problems for SWI 2017 can be found here: http://www.swi-wiskunde.nl/swi2017/problems/
Both junior and senior mathematicians are welcome to participate. Participation, including lunches and dinners, is free of charge after registration on http://www.swi-wiskunde.nl/swi2017/homepage/register/). Accommodation will be provided by the SWI organization on request for participants from outside the Amsterdam region.
SWI 2017 is co-organized by the Korteweg – de Vries Institute for Mathematics of the University of Amsterdam and Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI). For more information, registration and a full programme, visit www.swi-wiskunde.nl/swi2017.
