The 37th Annual Workshop on Mathematical Problems in Industry
June 14 - 18, 2021
The University of Vermont

About MPI

Mathematical Problems in Industry (MPI) is a problem solving workshop that attracts leading applied mathematicians and scientists from universities, industry, and national laboratories. During the workshop, engineers and scientists from industry interact with the academic participants on problems of interest to their companies. In the past, problems have been drawn from many areas of industrial practice, including:

  • engineering and product design,
  • process design and control,
  • analysis of datasets,
  • scheduling and optimization,
  • environmental remediation,
  • financial modeling.

Main missions of MPI are:

  • Help companies meet their technological challenges,   and
  • Provide graduate students with experience of working on real-world applications.

The MPI workshop is a resource that offers:

  • clarification and formulation of a proposed or existing process,
  • methods to solve problems of interest to industry,
  • links with applied mathematicians from universities and national laboratories,
  • fresh input of new ideas.
  • recruitment opportunities of and for graduate students


The organizers of MPI 2021 gratefully acknowledge:

  • funding from our industrial participants and the National Science Foundation through the Division of Mathematical Sciences’ Infrastructure Program,  
  • logistical support from the University of Vermont and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
