Brief description
The event will be an interactive workshop, where you will work with experienced mathematicians and scientists on three specific challenges, with a mathematical content, from innovative industries such as:

- Complex energy systems: Use of storage and demand response in balancing electricity networks

- Agri-tech: Efficient calculation of set partitions for optimal scheduling of crops in agriculture

- Cyber-security for connected and automated vehicles: Data poisoning in machine learning algorithms.

For briefs on problems please see Google Shared folder: CRITICS Event II (access will be granted to registered participants).

Each problem will be addressed by a project team under the guide of an experienced workshop leader. The challenge is to formulate a high-level mathematical description of the problem and a project plan showing the main approach and the pathway to developing a viable solution.

The workshop leaders will share their valuable experience, each gained from a different perspective:
a) Andrei Bejan (Senior Researcher, Origami Energy) is a mathematician, formerly an academic, now working in industry
b) Stan Zachary (Heriott Watt University) is a mathematician with a long-standing experience of working with the energy industry
c) Darren Handley (Lead Cyber-Security, Connected and automated vehicles, Department for Transport) is a senior scientist, working in the R&D in the UK government, together with mathematicians to solve some highly mathematical problems.

By taking part in this workshop you will gain valuable insight about:
a) Working as a mathematician in industry or academia in collaboration with industry
b) Working in a project team to create and deliver a solution beyond the theory
c) Presenting to a client/funding panel and defending the proposed solution.

In preparation for the workshop, each participant will be provided with a detailed information pack about each problem, followed by a one-to-one session with Cristina V. Sargent to discuss the topics in detail.

Please note that participants are not required to prepare a presentation or other materials for this workshop.
