AICES Excursion 2012

AICES Excursion 2012

On July 25, 2012, the AICES excursion, which was organized by the two AICES fellows Marcus Schmidt and Amir Niazi, took the AICES members to the climbing park Fun Forest in Venlo in the Netherlands. The climbing park has 9 different courses in living trees ranging in various heights and levels of difficulty.

After an exciting and exhausting climbing experiences, the AICES members have not only gained comfort with taking risks but also developed teambuilding skills by pairing up and helping each other.

At the end of the afternoon, the AICES team visited the Café Central in Venlo. Strengthened by a tasty lunch, the AICES team finally set out on a tour to explore the city center.

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).
