Modelling Camp 2017

May 01, 2017 - May 04, 2017

ICMS

 

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 Warwick, 04-08 September 2017.  Further details on Study Group are available here.

 

The organisers gratefully acknowledge the financial contribution from MI-NET. MI-NET is funded by COST through the EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020

Programme

The Modelling Camp will last for 3.5 days (Monday 1st May - Thursday 4th May)

The first day (Monday) will include a half-day of 'scene setting' and presentation of the industrial problems for consideration.  The cohort will then split into the appropriate nu mber of groups (depending on final number of problems covered).   Groups will work on the problems over the next 2.5 days, assisted by the instructors and additional support.  There will be a progress report session late on the 2nd day (Tuesday).  On the final morning (Thursday) there will be a 'wash up' session were results will be presented.

The provisional programme is shown below.

Industrial Problems for consideration at Modelling Camp 

It is proposed to have 4-5 Problems for consideration at the Modelling Camp.  The final number will depend on the number of students.  Some of the problems are currently under preparation (see details below).  Further details will be posted as they develop.


1.Bottle testing : reduction of costs "A company's quality control of the containers it produces involves testing for leaks. The standard initial test is noisy: about 8% fail, but only about 0.4% are judged to fail a secondary test. How can one bring down the false negatives without introducing too many false positives?" 

2. Contact Lens Production Line Modelling   Modelling of Contact lens production line to support an upgrade.  Modelling will include consideration of Heat and mass transfer, ODEs/PDEs.
