Modelling week in Lund
1-10 July 2000
organizes yearly a modelling week where students from the participating
institutions meet and work in teams on industrial problems in a simulated
study group with industry environment. The 14th modelling week is held
Sweden and is arranged by Centre for
Mathematical Sciences at Lund
Institute of Technology.
ReportingDuring the modeling week eight different projects were treated and the resulting reports are presented here. All the files are in pdf format.
Latest NewsDuring the week this home page was used for informing everybody about the ongoing activities. The (maybe somewhat outdated) list of 'Latest News' is available here.
Arriving in Lund
Accommodation and foodAll participants and instructors from outside Lund will be living in the International Graduate Student House. Contract for the two weeks from June 29th until July 12th will have to be signed at arrival in Lund. As you see on the home page given, this is a very good accomodation, so bring your laptop.
There are very many good restaurants, pubs, .. in town, but most of the eating during the week will be on the campus restaurant, Kårme (located in 'KH' on the map over Lund Institute of Technology (Centre for Math Sci is located in the 'maths' building on the same map)). You will however be asked to fix your own breakfast and you will also get the opportunity to try some of the restaurants in town during the evenings on Sunday (2/7) and Saturday (8/7). You will find more detailed information on the dining during the modelling week here.
ComputersThe computer facilities are the following, where the first decimal digit indicates the floor in the building. All the rooms are equipped with printers.
The first day all participants will get user accounts on for both operating systems. The accounts will be set up so that by default all students can read all other students' files. Matlab will be available on all machines.
Email of any type is easily read and written from the Unix computers. On the PC's it is only possible to use a mail service like Yahoo or Hotmail that uses HTTP. Unfortunately SMTP and all other ports are stopped by a firewall for security reasons.
More about our computers on our computer system homepage.
LibrariesThere are three libraries that will be open for you during the week. In the mathematics building, we have a library for mathematics and a library for mathematical statistics. You will have access to both of these for reading and borrowing via your instructor, also copying will be possible. On campus there is also a general university library, see UB2 on the campus map. You will have the possibility to use it for reading, and there will also be a facility for copying available. However, there will be some restrictions on the possibilities to borrow books from this library.
The department libraries will be possible to use whenever you can persuade your instructor to let you in. The university library will be opened during weekdays from 10 to 17 except on Wednesday when they close at 7 pm.
Social events and excursionsAs you can see from the program below there will be an excursion to the island Ven. This trip will bring you to some nice bathing shores, to the artefacts from the observatory of Tycho Brahe and we will have a little picnic!!
You will get a good opportunity to get more acquainted with Lund, since we are to arrange a Guided tour of the town during Thursday afternoon!
Furthermore, there will be presentations by COMSOL from Stockholm, Adtranz from Helsingborg and also some companies from Lund during the week.
And finally (in this part of the programme) there will be two dinners for all of us, the first on Friday 7/7 at 7pm we will have a TexMex dinner cooked by YOU (but with some organization by us). The second dinner is the ECMI MODELLING WEEK DINNER on the campus restaurant. You will get good Swedish food and you are supposed to organize the entertainment!
