Modelling Camp 2018

Tuesday 8 May - Friday 11 May

This Modelling Camp will have 3 main aims:

  1. To train students and early career mathematical science researchers to engage in study groups and similar activities
  2. To offer broader skills training - team-working, coping outside of one's comfort zone, introduction to modelling methodology, report writing, and enhancing communication/presentation skills
  3. To learn how different branches of mathematics can be applied in various industrial settings.

The meeting will be structured to maximise time for networking and informal discussions.

More specifically, this modelling camp will be held in advance of the  Study Group with Industry (ESGI), University of Bath, 16-20 July 2018. Further details on Study Group are available here.

The organisers gratefully acknowledge the continued financial support of MIGSAA.
