Mathematics in Industry Study Group
Monday 7 February - Friday 11 February 2022
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.
The Study Group will be a Hybrid Study Group. Participants can either attend virtually online or in person.
Online participation allows researchers to attend who would otherwise find it difficult to participate. 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.
Participants who choose to attend in-person must provide proof of full vaccination when they register. The venue for the in-person events will be the University of the Witwatersrand which will be celebrating its Centenary in 2022. The MISG is part of the Centenary celebrations.
Wits Covid-19 policies and protocols to prevent the spread of infection must be observed.
