Computational Modeling and Data Science: Workshop with Industry – Lappeenranta September 11-12, 2019
The outreach workshop was intended for fostering interaction between industrial representatives working in R&D projects and university researchers working in computational fields – broadly named as computational technology or industrial mathematics. Our wish was to attract industry representatives who are willing to present a case example, a practical problem, technical challenge, where computational approach, modelling, data analysis, simulation, optimization, scientific computing is seen as an essential component.
Besides the search for future collaborators, we also wanted to promote utilization of young talent in industrial projects, in the form of student internships and thesis projects. About 40 participants showed up. A nice dinner and get-together was part of the event.
