Coming up: 2nd NeEDS Modelling Week at Universidad de Chile, January 6th-11th 2020

The 2nd NeEDS Modelling Week will take place at the Faculty of Physical and Mathematical Sciences Universidad de Chile (Santiago de Chile, Chile) January 6th-11th, 2020.

The aims of NeEDS Modelling Week are:

(i) to train students in modelling real-world problems using quantitative approaches, drawn from Data Science and Mathematical Optimization,

(ii) to stimulate their collaboration and communication skills in an international and intersectoral environment,

(iii) to bring together academia with professionals from the public and private sectors to show the potentials advanced quantitative models can have for practice as well as to nurture the respective research agendas.

The participants will spend one week working to solve real-world problems using different quantitative modeling approaches. Small groups of Master students, Ph.D. students, and junior researchers (like post-doctoral students) will be assigned to each problem in term of their preference and own skills. During the first day of the event the problems will be presented. An instructor leads each of these groups throughout the week. During the following four days, students will work on solving the problems under the guidance of the instructor and industrial collaborators. The final day of the meeting will be devoted to the presentation of the results.
