2019 ICMS Modelling Camp

Tuesday 7 May - Friday 10 May 2019


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.
The organisers gratefully acknowledge the continued financial support of MIGSAA.
