  1st Oporto Meeting on Mathematics for Industry

4th Porto Meeting on
7th to 9th June 2012


About the Meeting

The purpose of this meeting is to focus the attention on the many and varied opportunities to promote applications of mathematics to industrial problems. Its major objectives are:

  • Development and encouragement of industrial and academic collaboration, facilitating contacts between academic, industrial, business and finance users of mathematics
  • Through "bridging the industrial/academic barrier" these meetings will provide opportunities to present successful collaborations and to elaborate elements such as technology transfer, differing vocabularies and goals, nurturing of contacts and resolution of issues.
  • To attract undergraduate students to distinctive and relevant formation profiles, motivate them during their study, and advance their personal training in Mathematics and its Applications to Industry, Finance, etc.

The meeting will be focused on short courses, of three one-hour lectures each, given by invited distinguished researchers, which are supplemented by contributed short talks by other participants and posters of case studies. This edition is especially dedicated to two main themes

Financial Mathematics
 Machine Learning Theory

The meeting is promoted as one of the activities of both GEMAC (Gabinete de Estatística, Modelação e Aplicações Computacionais) and Master course in Mathematical Engineering.

The meeting will be preceded by the 86th European Study Group that will take place in Porto (IPP) between the 7th and the 11th of May 2012.
