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 or two sides 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.
The participation fee is £8,500. Please contact Heather Tewkesbury for more information.
Study groups provide a unique opportunity for academics to work with industry to come up with new ideas and potential solutions for real problems.
ESGI130 will be held at the University of Warwick. Further details on accommodation will be provided in due course.
All participants are responsible for organising and funding their own travel to and from Coventry.
Registration information for ESGI130 at the University of Warwick, Monday 4th-Friday 8th September 2017 will be available here shortly.
