Mathematics provides a surprising amount of techniques to solve challenges in logistics and transport. Does your company have such challenges but no time to look into them? Or would you like to strengthen your contacts in the academic world? Would you like to meet mathematicians whom you could offer a job?
Then submit your problem description to the Study Group Mathematics with Industry (SWI 2024)!
A group of 5-10 mathematicians will analyze your problem for a whole week and present a solution on Friday.
Here is a sample of the problems and solutions of more than 60 companies in 20 earlier editions:
- How can the roster for reserve cabin crew be optimized? (KLM)
- How can we prevent dangerous roll of container ships? (MARIN)
- Can we create an energy-efficient railroad timetable? (NS)
Participation costs only €1.750 thanks to sponsoring by NWO.
SWI 2024 will take place at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam from 29 January to 2 February 2024.
