On 24 January, the special session "Aspects of Industrial Mathematics in Spain" will focus on the transfer of industrial mathematics through different success case studies. The session aims to provide an overview of the situation of mathematics in Spain, providing advanced solutions to problems arising from different economic sectors. This special session is part of the 18 special sessions that will take place in the RSME Conference that will be held in the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Santiago de Compostela between 21 and 25 January 2013.

The evolution of industrial mathematics in Spain has experienced a spectacular growth in recent years. Numerous research groups have strengthened their contacts with industry and new infrastructures have been created such as the Spanish Mathematics Network (math-in) and the Technological Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITMATI).

This session is funded by the Spanish Foundation on Science and Technology - Ministry of Economy and Competitiviness and in which ITMATI also collaborates.
