Math for the Digital Factory

Developing a holistic mathematical view on digital manufacturing

Join us in the University of Limerick on March 21st-22nd for conference that outlines the importance of mathematics for the 4th Industrial revolution - Industry 4.0.

Industry 4.0, the 4th industrial revolution, smart manufacturing, digital factories…etc. are some of the phrases being used today to describe a series of game-changing innovations that are changing the way products are manufactured for ever. Industrial mathematics is at the heart of these innovations. 

The workshop is organised together with the Special Interest Group “Math for the Digital Factory” of the European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI).

Registration is now open and will close on 31st of Janurary 


  • Chris Decubber - European Factories of the Future Research Association (EFFRA)

  • Louise Clune - Rusal Aughinish Alumina

  • Johan Carlson - Fraunhofer Chalmers Centre for Industrial Mathematics

  • Simone Göttlich - University of Mannheim

  • Luca Formaggia - MOX, Polytechnico Milano

  • Alfred Schmidt - Bremen University

Contributed oral presentations 

We invite applications for contributed oral presentations from both academic and industrially based researchers developing and implementing mathematical models for advanced manufacturing. Please upload a 300-word abstract as part of your registration. Applicants who are successful will be given up to €100 towards travel expenses for attending the event.

Some of the areas we are seeking: 

  • Data analysis and modelling
  • MSO of production systems
