The 35th ECMI Mathematical Modelling Week will take place on 5–12 July, 2020 at Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU), Saint-Petersburg, Russia. Modelling week will be included in International Polytechnic Summer School, which is annually held in SPbPU since 2012.

ECMI has been running annual Modelling Weeks for students since 1988. Students come from all over Europe to spend a week working in small multinational groups on problems which are based on real life problems. Each group is led by an ECMI instructor who introduces the problem – usually formulated in non-mathematical terms – on the first day and then helps to guide the students to a solution during the week. The students present their results to the other groups on the last day and then write up their work as a report. After finishing the report students will get 3 ECTS credits.

One problem will be tutored by Idoia Cortes Garcia in the field of accelerator magnets.

Update: the modelling week is postponed to 2021.
