The Department of Mathematics, IIT Roorkee proposes to organize the 5 Edition of Study Group Meeting at IIT Roorkee in collaboration with Industrial Mathematics Group (IMG, IITBombay) and the Oxford Centre for Collaborative Applied Mathematics (OCCAM, UK).

This will be a 6- day meeting (16-21, March 2009) on Real Life Industrial Problem Solving. Oxford Centre for Applied Mathematics has been very actively interacting with industry from mathematical perspective for more than three decades and is one of the leading centers of its kind in Europe. IMG at IIT Bombay has also been in the forefront in establishing links with industry for the past fifteen years. IMG has hosted several national and international workshops in this area to create awareness in the scientific community in India about the importance of Industrial Mathematics.

One of the objectives of the Meeting is to give exposure to Research Scholars and young faculty to live industrial problems requiring mathematical solutions. We, therefore, invite them to apply for participation in this important academic event. Efforts will be made to provide financial support for travel, boarding and lodging for all selected participants. Selection will be based on merit.
