The centre for Industrial Mathematics at the MS University, in partnership with the Finland based Lappeenranta University of Technology, will play host to a SGM (Study Group Meeting) at the Faculty of Technology and Engineering. The 5 day meeting commences from Monday.
The major aim behind the SGM is to provide the necessary exposure to all the research scholars along with the young faculties to face the industrial issues that need to be overcome with the help of mathematical solutions.
As many as 25 well known mathematicians and engineers from UK, Netherlands, France, Sri Lanka, Denmark, Japan, Finland, Indonesia and Malaysia would take part in the SGM. Additionally, more than 60 industry specialists are also expected to participate.
The assistant professor at the Department of Applied Mathematics, Nilima Shah, stated that "The meeting will focus on the providing an in-depth exposure regarding pertinent problems faced in various industries and finding solutions to those problems,"
She further added that "The interaction between the industry experts and the research scholars is likely to lead to a productive and efficient outcome of the various industrial problems using various mathematical models,"
SGM came into being in 1968 in UK with major contributions from professor Lesslie Fox and Alan Teylor. It has now taken the shape of 'European Consortium for Mathematics' in the entire industry. Due to the benefits it provides to both, the industry and academics, it has become a recognized model at the International level.
