Virtual Mathematics in Industry Study Group
Monday 1 February - Friday 5 February 2021
A Mathematics in Industry Study Group is a five-day workshop at which academic researchers and graduate students work collaboratively with representatives from industry on research problems submitted by local industry. Study Groups have been organized for over fifty years in many countries around the world. The first Study Group in South Africa was held in 2004.
A Study Group is open and free from any non-disclosure agreement with industry.
Due to the Covid-19 epidemic the Study Group in 2021 will be a Virtual Study Group (VSG). A virtual meeting is an opportunity to develop further the Study Group in South Africa.
A VSG allows the participation of researchers who otherwise would find it difficult to participate in the Study Group. This includes experts in the field who are not needed for the whole of the meeting, those with travel difficulties both within South Africa and internationally, those with caring responsibilities and teaching commitments.
