MISG 2017 ran from 13-17 February 2017. It was opened by Emeritus Professor John Ockendon from Oxford University, who was instrumental in setting up study groups around the world.
We had about 65 delegates at MISG 2017, of which about one-third were PhD students. Most delegates were from Australia, but we also had visitors from the UK, Europe, Japan and Korea.
The delegates tackled four industry problems:
- analysing the lateness of UK passenger trains
- determining the impact of safety cameras on road crashes
- estimating the transonic drag of projectiles
- developing electricity control and pricing mechanisms for micro-grids.
