The Graduate Modelling Camp is a 4-day workshop from 14-17 March 2017 that aims to provide participants with hands-on experience of mathematical modelling under the guidance of an experienced instructor. The Camp is designed to promote a broad range of problem-solving skills, such as mathematical modelling & analysis, scientific computation & critical assessment of solutions.

The problems to be considered are inspired by real problems that have arisen in industry or science. The Camp begins with presentations from the mentors. Then, according to preference, the participants form teams to work on each problem. Scientific communication is an important part of the Camp and all participants are expected to make presentations.

Please note that both verbal and written business level English are essential requirements for attendance on the Camp, and participants must have commenced doctoral-level studies.

Local accommodation will be arranged for non-Oxford attendees. All meals will be provided for the duration of the Camp, including breakfast and evening meal for those staying at St Anne's. Attendees will be expected to cover their own travel to Oxford. Accommodation and all meal costs are included in the fee and attendees are advised to approach their home institution for support if needed.

There will be prizes for each member of the team deemed to have given the best presentation at the end of the camp. The prizes have been kindly provided by and include a year's membership of The Institute of Mathematics & its Applications (IMA). 

Application process:

The deadline for completing the registration form is Friday 3 February 2017. Applications received after this date will not be considered. We hope to inform all applicants of the decisions made by the middle of February 2017.
