Tuesday 3rd May 2022 to Tuesday 17th May 2022


The Newton Gateway is implementing a number of short intensive training courses (2-3 days) in mathematical areas of relevance to individuals in industry, business and government. We envisage that these courses will provide technical training in the subject matter with the emphasis on practical applications of mathematics. In November 2021, the Machine Learning Training for Industry was successfully conducted in a hybrid format.
We are currently in the process of developing our second training course which will focus on Optimisation for Industry, more specifically, for Data Scientists/Machine Learning, and will take place over 3 days in a hybrid teaching format. We plan to hold this as a hybrid event. The first day of the course, Tuesday 3rd May, will take place physically at the Isaac Newton Institute, followed by 2 virtual sessions on Tuesday 10th and Tuesday 17th May 2022.

Aims and Objectives                                                       

We envisage that this course will provide technical training in optimisation and it is anticipated that participants will have practical experience and a numerate degree, but not necessarily in mathematical sciences.

This course will provide delegates with essential skills across the three sessions, which we plan to consist of:

  • Session 1: Introduction to optimisation and mathematical programming
  • Session 2: Optimisation under uncertainty
  • Session 3: Stochastic models

We anticipate that the course will run from 09:30 – 17:00 with breaks for refreshments and lunch.

Registration and Venue

To express an interest in registering, please follow the Expression of Interest link in the left-hand panel. As we are in the process of developing this event, we welcome any input on specific areas that would be useful to cover in the training.

Please note that the registration fee is to be confirmed and that the number of attendees will be limited to ensure delegates can fully engage with the tutor and to facilitate interaction between delegates.

Tuesday 3rd May will take place at the at the Isaac Newton Institutefollowed by 2 virtual sessions on Tuesday 10th and Tuesday 17th May 2022.

This training will be delivered in collaboration with an optimisation training body – more details of this will be shared in the months leading up to the event.
