Isaac Newton Institute

United Kingdom


The Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information (CCIMI) annual Industry engagement day aimed to showcase the research that is being carried out at the Institute and enable delegates to hear more detail about some of the current project collaborations and industry challenges that CCIMI is exploring.

This hybrid event followed the previous industry and academic engagement events delivered since 2016 and more information is available on the Gateway initiatives webpage.

The Cantab Capital Institute for the Mathematics of Information accommodates research activity on fundamental mathematical problems and methodology for understanding, analysing, processing and simulating data. Data science research performed in the Institute is at the highest international level, aiming to extract the relevant information from large and high-dimensional data with a predictable certainty. For more detailed information on projects, please see the CCIMI website.

Aims and Objectives

The main focus of this one day industrial engagement event was to provide an update on research and collaborations taking place at the CCIMI, as well as presenting interesting research being developed elsewhere.

The talks highlighted research taking place at CCIMI, with associated industrial speakers and explored the big questions in data science, especially where mathematics is most suited to help provide answers.  As in previous years, there was also a session hosted by CCIMI students which they will develop and deliver as a group.
This event was of interest to participants including economists; social scientists; physicists; engineers; biomedical scientists as well as those working in statistics; pure, applied & computational analysis; quantum computing, cryptography, communication & security and those from data processing.

The Programme is available here.

Poster Session

For those attending in person, there was the opportunity to present a poster. Students and early career researchers (within 7 years of completing their last degree) were encouraged to bring a poster and discuss their work at an exhibition that run during the lunch and networking sessions.

A prize was awarded for the most enlightening poster by a student/ early career researcher. Congratulations to CCIMI PhD Student Oscar de Witt who won the prize this year, which was awarded by CCIMI co-director Dr. Randolf Altmeyer. 


Registration and Venue

Registrations are now closed for this event. 

To maximise networking opportunities and interaction with speakers and other participants, we encouraged in-person attendance to this workshop. This event was also hosted as hybrid via Zoom.
The workshop took place at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Cambridge. Please see the Isaac Newton Institute website for further information about the venue.
