This edition is organized by the Department of Mathematics, Faculty of Sciences, University of Porto in collaboration with the Portuguese Network for Industrial Mathematics (PT-MATHS-IN) and the Spanish Network for Mathematics and Industry (math-in).
The Iberian Modelling Week is an event organized jointly by the Portuguese and Spanish networks of Industrial Mathematics (PT-MATHS-IN and math-in, respectively) and is intended for students of master's degrees and with strong component in mathematics. This initiative aims to provide students the opportunity to work on real problems, thus preparing them to better address the labor market and be able to respond to their demands. The international nature of the event also allows the exchange of experience among students with different realities of teaching.
This event also aims to raise Industry awareness of Mathematics contribution to solving real life industrial problems.
The Iberian Modeling Week is an itinerant event that takes place alternately between Portugal and Spain, taking place each year in a different higher education institution. After Coimbra and Santiago de Compostela, Porto is now the city chosen to host this third edition.
The III IMW is funded by COST Action TD1409, Mathematics for Industry Network (MI-NET).
