Workshop in Industrial Mathematics (WIM2021)

Printer-friendly versionSend by email
The Workshop in Industrial Mathematics (WIM2021) with the Reduced-Order Modeling, Simulation and Optimization of Coupled Systems theme focuses on various aspects of mathematical applications in the industry with an emphasis on “Reduced Order Methods” (R), “Optimization and Inverse Problems” (O) and “Coupled Systems” (C) addressing a variety of challenges arising in a broad array of industrial applications.
WIM2021 is divided into three main blocks, dedicated to O, C, and R class of problems with talks of invited experts in this field and further contributed talks. The workshop, moreover, includes an industry-featured session, hosting speakers from the industry on mathematical aspects. It hopes to provide the participants an insight into the various facets of industrial mathematics.
