OCCAM Graduate Modelling Camp 2010
OCCAM Hosts the 2nd UK Graduate Modelling Camp
The Mathematical Institute & St Hugh's College, Oxford.
Tuesday April 6th - Friday April 9th, 2010
The Graduate Modelling Camp is a 4-day workshop that aims to give participants hands-on experience of mathematical modelling under guidance of an experienced instructor. The Camp has been designed to promote a broad range of problem-solving skills, including mathematical modelling & analysis, scientific computation & critical assessment of solutions.
The problems for this year's Camp are:
These problems are inspired by real problems that arise in industry or science. Following presentations on the Tuesday morning, participants will be formed into teams that will work on each problem. Scientific communication will be an important part of the camp & all participants will be expected to make presentations.
The Camp is designed to run back-to-back with the 73rd European Study Group with Industry (ESGI), The University of Warwick 12th - 16th April 2010. The Camp runs the week before the ESGI & the participants should also attend the Study Group wherever possible. In effect, the camp provides an additional problem-solving experience for Graduate Students as a warm-up prior to the Study Group.
Organiser: Dr Chris Breward
