Mathematics at the heart of driving innovation in Irish Smart Manufacturing Research Centre

ECMI Special Interest Groups (SIG) exist to promote collaborative research on specific topics in Mathematics for Industry within Europe. The Math for the Digital Factory SIG brings together university mathematicians working in modelling, simulation and optimisation related to manufacturing with practitioners from manufacturing industry The University of Limerick is currently hosting the Math for the […]

Student Modelling Weeks

By Niall McInerney Study groups with industry can be an intimidating environment for early stage researchers. The unstructured nature of solving a real world problem in the company of Professors can be incredibly daunting, and often an MSc or early PhD student is not yet equipped with the skills necessary to contribute to the problems […]

Welcome to Limerick!

MACSI are delighted to be the featured node for the next couple of weeks where we will have posts on industry projects, the ECMI Math for the Digital Factory meeting takes place in Limerick next week (21-23rd March), the mathematics of batteries, and why distractions during your PhD are sometimes a good thing! First up is […]

RealForAll: Real-time measurements and forecasting for successful prevention and management of seasonal allergies in Croatia-Serbia cross-border region (project ID: HR-RS151)

Exposure to aeroallergens is associated with allergic rhinitis and asthma that significantly reduce quality of life and have a notable economic impact on society in the Croatia-Serbia cross-border region (Figure 1). Numerous sources of allergenic airborne pollen are present in the region resulting in exposure to strong allergens (e.g. birch trees, grass, common ragweed) on […]

Workshop Mathematics for Big Data

Dates: May 31- June 1, 2017 Place: University of Novi Sad, Serbia The availability of huge amounts of data is often considered as the fourth industrial revolution we are living right now. The increase in data accumulation allows us to tackle a wide range of social, economic, industrial and scientific challenges. But extracting meaningful knowledge […]

Applied mathematics in stent development

Dr Tuoi Vo Coronary artery disease is a global problem and devising effective treatments is the subject of intense research activity throughout the world. Over the past decade, stents have emerged as one of the most popular treatments. Acting as a supporting scaffold, these small mesh devices are now routinely inserted into arteries where the […]

Improving weather forecasting using mathematics

Weather affects all of us and we take a close interest in it; national and regional television news reports typically finish with a weather forecast watched by millions. Accurate weather forecasting has become essential in the transport, agricultural and energy sectors, and for managing the day-to-day operations of the emergency services. The challenge The Met […]

Liquid Crystals, Elastomers and Biological Applications Special Interest Group

It has been a successful year for the ECMI Special Interest Group on Liquid Crystals, headed by the University of Bath’s Apala Majumdar (Bath ECMI Representative) and the University of Strathclyde’s Nigel Mottram. Majumdar was awarded the London Mathematical Society Anne Bennett Prize in 2015 for “her outstanding contributions to the mathematics of liquid crystals […]
