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.

The conference ist supported by the COST Network MI-NET and by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation SERI.

All lectures are open to the public. Please register for this event.

Key Note Presenter

Scientific topics

We want to leave the topic open as «Mathematics for Industry», but put a thematic focus on:

Specific sample topics

Industrial Mathematics

Financial Mathematics

Mathematics for Smart Maintenance



ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences, Technikumstrasse 9, 8400 Winterthur, Switzerland, Laborgebäude (TL)

The conference venue is situated at a walking distance of 450 metres from the station.

Travel to ZHAW School of Engineering, Winterthur

From the Zürich airport local transport brings you to the centre of Winterthur in just 20 minutes.

The conference takes place in a short walking distance to the train station. Numerous hotels in the immediate vicinity will ensure a pleasant stay in Winterthur

By train
The trains run as often as every 15 to 20 minutes from Zürich Airport and Zürich City and take about 15 minutes to arrive in Winterthur.

From the main railway-station, the conference location can be reached within a walking distance of less than 5 minutes.
