1st European COST Conference on Mathematics for Industry in Switzerland
We would like to welcome you to the «1st COST Conference on Mathematics for Industry in Switzerland», hosted by the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Physics and the Institute of Data Analysis and Process Design at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences ZHAW in Winterthur, Switzerland.
1st COST Conference on Mathematics for Industry in Switzerland
September 15, 2016 - ZHAW Winterthur, Technikumstrasse 9, 8400 Winterthur
Aim of the conference
We aim to bring European academics, young researchers, students and industrial practitioners together to promote «Mathematics for Industry» in Switzerland. We want to promote «Mathematics for Industry» in Switzerland, similar to what ECMI is doing on an European-wide level.
We have three thematic workshops, focusing on Industrial Mathematics, Mathematics for Smart Maintenance, and Financial Mathematics.
All lectures are open to the public. Please register for this event.
