Mathematics in Industry around the World

The 8th International Congress for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM 2015), was well represented by sessions on applied mathematics, but sadly, only 19 out of the 651 minisymposia at the meeting held in Beijing in August were designated as ‘industrial.’ Among these, a series called "‘Industrial Mathematics around the World," organized by the late Professor Yongji Tan (Fudan University) and Dr Yichao Zhu (Hong Kong University of Science and Technology), brought to light how different countries address industrial mathematics.
