A Knowledge Transfer Workshop/Sandpit on Industrial Inverse Problems will be held on 17-18 March 2008 at the University of Leeds.
The purpose of the meeting is for industrialists and academics to identify inverse problems of common interest. Inverse Problems seek to identify causes from given effects and as such they are at the heart of many physical phenomena and any advance into the subject should be encouraged.
The Workshop/Sandpit will follow the format of presentations from industry by way of introducing the problems on the first day, followed by intensive work on the problems by groups (academic and industrial) during the next day. The workshop will be facilitated by the Industrial Mathematics Knowledge Transfer Network.
As an outcome of this activity it is hoped that a relationship between academics and industrialists will be established and cemented through possible grant proposals for PhD Studentships / CASE Awards and Post-docs to be submitted to the EPSRC or to other foundations.
Academic participation is open to all members of the inverse problems community or related subjects, including postgraduate students, for whom the proposed activity provides an excellent training in oriented research. Please note that there are no fees to be charged for participating at the workshop.
To register for the workshop, academics and industrialists are invited to send their contact details (before 1st February 2008) to Dr Daniel Lesnic at the Department of Applied Mathematics of the University of Leeds.
