Symposium on Applications of Mathematical Sciences

KIT Center MathSEE is one of the eight interdisciplinary research centers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. It pools knowledge between sciences, engineering and economics and builds the bridge to the mathematical sciences achieving success through interdisciplinary research on scientific and societal challenges. It also aims to bring experiences on a national, european and international scale together and be the town square for exchange of ideas, best practices and co-operations.

Through the symposium on applications of mathematics, the center fosters discussion and promotes new partnerships in science and with the industry. On-site costs are kindly covered by MathSEE so that the registration fee for the symposium itself is free.

In September 2023, the second MathSEE Symposium will take place and in this spirit, we welcome you most warmly to join us at the symposium and become part of the Math-SEE community! 

The symposium will feature 8 plenary lectures and several sessions on the applications of mathematical methods along the following tracks:

  • Mathematical structures: Shapes, Geometry, Number Theory and Algebra
  • Mathematical Modeling, Differential Equations, Numerics and Simulation
  • Inverse problems and Optimization
  • Stochastic Modeling, Statistical Data Analysis and Forecasting

Scroll through the following pages, Submit your contributions and interact with the mathematical community at KIT and worldwide, to discuss, to share and to network!
