This Special Section of the ANZIAM Journal (Electronic
Supplement) contains the refereed papers from the 2011
Mathematics and Statistics in Industry Study Group (MISG
2011) held at RMIT University in 6--11 February 2011. The
MISG is a special interest meeting of ANZIAM, the Australia
and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ANZIAM)
division of the Australian Mathematics Society. The MISG
meetings take place annually and provide a forum where
problems proposed by industry can be worked on intensively,
by high profile scientists in the fields of Applied
Mathematics, Statistics and Operations Research, from
Australia, New Zealand and the world beyond, along with
representatives from the industries proposing the problems.

Five problems were presented from diverse industries, with
73 delegates participating.

All the papers were written by the problem moderators in
consultation with the company representatives. The
manuscripts were submitted to the editors; Associate
Professor John Shepherd, Dr Andrew Stacey and Professor Tony
Roberts; and were subsequently refereed by two expert
referees. On the advice of the referees manuscripts were
accepted for publication, subject to the recommended
revisions, and formally approved by the editorial committee.

  • Director: Associate Professor John Shepherd
  • Deputy Directors: Dr John Gear and Dr Lynne McArthur
  • Administrative Officer: Ms Leanne O'Doherty
