Organized jointly by the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) and the Institute for Data Valorization (IVADO), the Eleventh Montreal Problem Solving Workshop (IPSW) will be held from August 23 to 27, 2021.

The IPSW will bring together industrial representatives, university researchers, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows. Participants will work in teams, each of which studying a problem proposed by a company or a public or quasi-public institution.

The main of the goals of the workshop: 1.) to provide organizations with mathematical tools for solving problems; and 2.) to allow researchers and students in the mathematical sciences (including data science, statistics, optimization, financial mathematics, natural language processing, etc.) to consider real-world problems. The IPSW is seen as an “incubator” of collaborations between companies and university researchers; the work carried out during the workshop can lead in medium- and long-term projects, financed through various types of grants.
