Once a problem has been agreed, problem presenters will need to prepare a written problem description to go on this website and in the booklet issued to participants. The description is usually one side of A4, but can be longer if required. On the first day of the workshop, the problem presenter will give a presentation on their problem, usually lasting around 30 minutes, including time for questions from the audience.
A crucial aspect of the Study Groups is the interaction between the mathematical modellers and the problem presenters.
The modellers will largely be coming at the problems cold, and so are likely to have lots of questions to ask the presenters as they try to understand what is important to consider and what is not. It is therefore important that the problem presenters are in attendance for most of the meeting. In particular, the presenters must be present for the first day, in order to present the problem and answer any immediate questions when the groups first meet.
Study groups provide a unique opportunity for academics to work with industry to come up with new ideas and potential solutions for real problems.
The Agri-Food Mathematical Science Study Group with Industry will be held at the University of Bath. Further details on accommodation will be provided in due course.
All participants are responsible for organising and funding their own travel to and from Bath.
