New Zealand event, 29 June – 3 July, Auckland
A workshop to solve thought-provoking and industry relevant challenges through mathematics is being held in New Zealand after a gap of nine years. Join an assembly of New Zealand’s and Australia’s brightest maths minds on 29 June to 3 July, at Massey University Auckland to work on solving complex questions. Attendance is free for participating mathematicians, together with all other mathematical scientists, and subsidies are expected for postgraduate students to attend. Teachers of mathematics are welcome as well. A number of New Zealand businesses, including Compac Sorting, will be involved and are now identifying the challenges they need solved.
Up to six core business problems will be presented to participating mathematicians by businesses. In these workshops, industrial organisations present problems from their own context, and then subgroups are formed to develop solutions during the week, culminating in a review session on the final day. A plenary address will be given by a leading international industrial mathematical scientist. Publication of reports is encouraged for the ANZIAM Journal of Applied Mathematics (Series E).
The newly formed Mathematics-in-Industry New Zealand (MINZ) is running the event, led by Australian and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics Group (ANZIAM) and Kiwi Innovation Network (KiwiNet), and is supported by Centre for Mathematics-in-Industry Massey University, AUT Mathematical Sciences Group, Te Pūnaha Matatini (the Complex Systems Centre) and Callaghan Innovation.
