MathMods :: Joint MSc



Here you'll find news about our applications opening, selection results, events as well as updates from our five partner universities.

12 Jul

MaMoW (Mathematical Modelling Workshop: MathMods & EMA Alumni Meeting 2014) is the first official meeting organised by our MathMods alumni. MaMoW will run from Monday 14 to Saturday 19 (July 2014) in the Math Department (D.I.S.I.M.) of the University of L'Aquila, which has coordinated the whole MathMods project since its beginning back in 2008.

The Workshop will consist of two parts:

  1. On 14 and 15 July the Alumni meeting will take place: students from different EMA courses will be gathering to discuss their common experiences in round table sessions, scientific camps and talks.
  2. From 16 to 18 July the Mathematical Modelling Workshop with mini-lectures, talks, contributions and poster sessions will be held with a focus on the many aspects of mathematical modelling.

Finally, on the last day (19 July), a social trip to some beautiful nearby villages (like Santo Stefano di Sessanio and Rocca Calascio) will be organised.

On 6 July we participated with the largest MathMods running group (37 runners) ever since the programme started. The KKH-Alster-Run 2014 has been organized by a German health insurance company. The entry fee (6 euro for each runner) went to Germany's wellknown charity programme entitled "Ein Herz für Kinder". The running distance was 7.4 km, around the Outer Alster which was quite a lot farer than the previous years (4.5 km through the Hafencity) It was amazing that so many students participated, a few of them even during the Ramadan, on that hot summer day (about 28 degrees)!

The programme was very family-friendly (different distances for different target groups) and motivating, especially the guided warming-up exercises for our long distance runners were great fun for everybody (sportsmen and fans :-)). We think that the fotos speak well for themselves. As special guests we welcomed our visiting professor Sergio Gonzalez as well as Professor Gasser's daughters who both were very successful in the run for beginners (2.4 kilometers) .

In order to pass the time while the runners were competing the spectators enjoyed the wonderful Alster panorama as well as the performances of typical (German) sports club culture (dance and cheerleader performance of young girls and trampoline acrobatic). Additionally beverages were for free as well as a shorts-shirt for all runners.

All our sportsmen were successful. Congratulations! Here comes the ranking of the best runners:
1. Professor Gasser (39 minutes) 2. Miriam (43 minutes) 3. Adriano (Professor Gasser's nephew) (43 minutes), 4. Mohamed (45 minutes) 5. Alexandr (46 minutes).

At the end there was a presentation ceremony and surprisingly Professor Gasser was awarded a cheque about 200 euros for the University of Hamburg for our team being the third largest of the event!

Congratulations to the all runners and supporters!

Here are a few photos from our ERASMUS-(MUNDUS)- MathMods event at the Guesthouse of the University of Hamburg. About 60 students from both programmes joined us. It was amazing to welcome students from so many different countries. Students from 5 different MathMods generations (2nd-6th cycle) joined us.

It was great fun! During the official part we had the pleasure to listen to 30 different languages when the students presented each other in their mother tongue. After the official part we had some delicious (German) food together. Later on we watched Mexico - Brazil and Luiz from Mexico brought a gigantic Mexican flag with him.

We had also the pleasure to welcome Sergio Gonzalez-Andrade, our MathMods visiting professors from Ecuador and special guest that evening.
