Closing workshop: Looking forward to 2050


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

This workshop will report on progress achieved during the programme, including work on both operational timescale and investment timescale problems. There will be a knowledge transfer day and talks on research priorities looking forward to 2050.

There will be talks by world-leading experts with various backgrounds (such as engineering, optimization, control, machine learning, physics, economics, finance, atmospheric sciences) and the intended audience is accordingly not limited to mathematicians.
