Industrial Mathematics at UOIT, September 22, 2012

[15/09/12 Update: The location of the event is Science Building SA 1240, for directions see]

Contrary to popular belief, theoretical math can have practical applications. At this meeting, the applications presented will range from biomedical to finance. You will get friendly introductions to these applications and have a chance to interact with mathematicians who implement these models in the industry. If you are thinking about applying your mathematical knowledge to real world problems, this meeting will surely be an opportunity to learn and to network.
