Math+X interfaculty research workshop

Wednesday, September 20, 2023 9:30 am - 2:00 pm EDT (GMT -04:00)

The Faculty of Mathematics will host a Math+X Inter-Faculty Research Workshop with a theme on Data+ Computation for the 5 Global Futures, on Wednesday September 20, 2023, 9:30am-2:00pm, in DC1301/1304.

The goal of the workshop is to initiate inter-Faculty, interdisciplinary research collaborations that address the 5 Global Futures which the University of Waterloo has identified in its Waterloo at 100 Strategic Vision to address the most pressing challenges for humanity and our planet. Aligned to our academic and research strengths, the 5 Global Futures reflect the many changes happening in our region, country and world: Economic Futures, Health Futures, Societal Futures, Sustainable Futures, and Technological Futures.

Faculty members from any of Waterloo’s 6 Faculties who are interested in exploiting data and computation for attacking their research problems related to the 5 Global Futures are invited to attend this research mash-up event with networking lunch. One of the main objectives is to facilitate formation of interdisciplinary teams to tackle challenging research problems where data and computation can help to obtain transformative research outcomes.

Faculty members are asked to register now to indicate your interest in participating in this event either as a presenter or audience member. Registration deadline is September 6, 2023.

For presenters, please provide:

  • Title of presentation (5-minute talk)
  • Short abstract, including what type of collaboration you are seeking

For audience members, please provide:

  • Your area of research expertise and interest in collaboration
