Mathematical Technology as a key tool for Industry 4.0

The Spanish Network for Mathematics & Industry (math-in) promoted a Mini-symposium in the framework of the XXV Congress of Differential Equations and Applications / XV Congress of Applied Mathematics (CEDYA + CMA 2017) celebrated on 28 and 29 June 2017 in Cartagena (Spain). The special session (SE 11), entitled “Mathematical technology as a key tool for Industry 4.0: some success stories”, was focused on showing the growing potential of mathematical technology as a key tool for innovation, allowing companies and administrations to move forward the challenges of the Industry 4.0 strategy. Additionally, the main capacities and background of the research groups, members of math-in, were shown. The speakers demonstrated the success of real collaborations between companies/administrations and research groups thanks to the transferred mathematical technology.

Details regarding the presentations are detailed below:

  • Castañon Quiroz, Daniel (BCAM)
    “Optimization of a nozzle design for 3D printing with laser by numerical simulation of multiphase turbulent fluid using FEniCS-HPC”
  • Charco Romero, María (CSIC-UCM)
