Second CAMMP @ RWTH

Second Cammp

What is the best way to load passengers onto a plane? And can paper talk? Once again, CAMMP sought to provide answers to questions like this. The Computational and Mathematical Modeling Program brought together students, teachers and researchers from both high school and university, working intensively over the course of a week on complex real-world problems by using mathematical models.

CAMMP took place from June 24 – 29, 2012 in a youth hostel in Voeren, Belgium, and was organized by Professor Martin Frank (MathCCES), Professor Ahmed Ismail (Molecular Simulations and Transformations), as well as Dr. Nicole Faber (AICES Graduate School).
