The 2018 Mathematics in Industry Group workshop was held in Adelaide from 29 January – 2 February. There were four projects from three companies:
- Australian Bureau of Statistics: combining publicly available data to infer information about sub-populations
- ElectraNet: incorporating the stochastic behaviour of new electricity generation technologies into long-term network optimisation
- ElectraNet: how do non-sychronous power generators, such as wind turbines and photovoltaic generators, impact the stability of electricity systems?
- Australian Lamb Company: optimising red meat cuts.
MISG was attended by about 75 delegates. Most were from Adelaide, but delegates also came from Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Newcastle. International delegates were from Oxford (UK), South Korea, Japan, Spain, Turkey and Italy. About half of the delegates were PhD students.
MISG was opened by Professor Emily Hilder, director of the Future Industries Institute at the University of South Australia. The MISG dinner was held at the State Library of South Australia.
The venue for the next 2019 MISG will be announced here once it has been decided.
