The Atlantic Association for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (AARMS) will host its second Industrial Problem Solving Workshop (IPSW).
The main goals of an IPSW are to build connections between researchers in industry, non-profit organizations, and academia. Four or more organizations based in Atlantic Canada and elsewhere will present problems related to their interests, and participants will break into teams to explore solutions to these problems. The problems come from a variety of subject areas, but all are designed to be approachable by students and postdocs with backgrounds in pure mathematics, modelling, scientific computing, computer science, or data analysis. Each problem group will be led by one or more university faculty members with expertise relevant to the technical challenge at hand, but participants with a wide range of interests and expertise are welcome. Over the course of the five-day workshop, problem groups will work collaboratively to explore possible solution strategies to the technical challenges and propose longer-term research directions, as well as make connections to a larger group of companies and academic researchers with similar interests.
