Industrial Problems Seminar

In collaboration with the Minnesota Center for Industrial Mathematics, the Industrial Problems Seminars are a forum for industrial researchers to present their work to an audience of IMA postdocs, visitors, and graduate students, offering a first-hand glimpse into industrial research. The seminar series is often useful for initiating contact with industrial scientists. The IMA’s seminar series is the oldest and longest running seminar series in industrial mathematics.

Seminars take place Fridays from 1:25-2:25 p.m. in Walter Library 402 or virtually by Zoom. Please check the individual seminar page for details.

The seminars are organized by Gilad Lerman , School of Mathematics, University of Minnesota.
