Our sincere thanks go to Phil Trinh for his exceptional work as photographer for the day. The photos are available here.


The aim of the conference is to bring together undergradute and graduate students, young researchers and faculty from a wide range of disciplines, sharing a common interest in Industrial and Applied Mathematics. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with one another, share their research/study interests, and make useful contacts both in the academic community and in industry.
