The MPI Workshop is a lively, 5-day interaction on problems of interest to science and industry. On the first day, the industry representatives present their problems to the group of participants; these problems vary widely in nature from those requiring basic physical modeling to those requiring significant computation or data analysis. For the rest of the week, the workshop participants break up into small working groups consisting of senior faculty and attending scientists, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and the industrial representatives, to discuss and tackle the problems in an informal setting. On the last day of the workshop, an academic representative from each group presents the results obtained and discusses possible future directions. A written report detailing the progress made during the workshop is prepared subsequently and sent to the industry representatives. Upon approval by the industry representative, the reports are posted online. The format of the workshop is not strict and some variation is possible. The Organizing Committee is committed to working with representatives from industry to meet their needs, and we are especially interested in encouraging new contacts with industry while continuing to seek collaborative opportunities with existing ones.
All activities of the Workshop will take place at the New Jersey Institute of Technology from June 12-16. Lodging for industry representatives and visiting faculty will be in local hotels, while lodging for visiting graduate students will be provided in university housing (see below for more information). A light breakfast and lunch will be provided on campus each day for all Workshop participants. During the Workshop, participants will have access to campus computing, Wi-Fi, and select facilities.
Participation in MPI 2023 is open to mathematicians, scientists and engineers from industry and academia. If you wish to be considered for participation in the Workshop, please complete this online registration form by May 1, 2023. There is no registration fee but space is limited; to ensure the best Workshop outcomes, all applications will be screened to secure an appropriate range of expertise. Early-career faculty and postdocs are especially encouraged to apply. Exceptional applicants may be eligible for some travel support. Graduate students who have participated in previous MPI Workshops or have attended the Graduate Student Mathematical Modeling Camp are also invited to apply.
