    Statistical Challenges in Astronomy

    Dates: 7–8 December 2017
    Venue: RC4082, The Red Center, University of New South Wales

    Current and future astronomical survey projects produce large volumes of high quality data to enable research on topics including the formation and evolution of the Milky Way, the architecture of exoplanetary systems, and the evolution of galaxies across cosmic time.

    This workshop will bring together statisticians and astronomers to stimulate discussions of new ideas and foster new collaborations, and hence accelerate discovery across disciplinary boundaries. Topics will include:

    • group finding for big data
    • high dimensional data visualisation
    • generative models
    • Bayesian modelling.

    The format of the workshop seeks to overcome cross disciplinary language barriers and to initiate potential collaborations between participants.

    Risk: modelling, optimization and inference
    with applications in Finance, Insurance and Superannuation

    Dates: 7–8 December 2017
    Venue: Lecture Theatre A, Robert Webster Building, UNSW Sydney, Australia

    AFAS Macquarie University, School of Mathematics and Statistics UNSW, and School of Risk and Actuarial Studies UNSW are organizing this two-day workshop. This is going to be a very interesting workshop, with many high calibre international researchers presenting.

    In the wake of the latest financial crisis, hurricane damages, the growing number and severity of bushfires and floods, the benefits from risk management are well understood by the community. Modelling and assessing risk, risk evaluation and estimation is a current issue for many diverse industries. The role of academics is to provide useful fundamental research in this area that is to be implemented in the industry. Important application areas are Finance, Insurance and Superannuation.

    It is jointly organised by:

    • School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW — represented by A/Prof. Spiridon Penev
    • Dept. of Applied Finance and Actuarial Studies, Macquarie Univ. — Professor Pavel Shevchenko
    • School of Risk and Actuarial Studies, UNSW — A/Prof. Benjamin Avanzi

    The idea of the workshop is to keep the level of talks to be suitable for postgraduate (and advanced undergraduate) students, as well as for researchers and practitioners, particularly from the Finance, Insurance, and Superannuation Industries, who would like to learn more about the mathematical, statistical and operations research aspects of risk. Many leading experts in the above areas will give presentations at the workshop. The workshop's dates of Thursday and Friday, 7–8 December 2017 are chosen to be close to the dates of the annual ‘Quantitative Methods in Finance’ conference (QMF) that will start in Sydney on Monday 11 December 2017.

    A.J. Guttmann Prize

    This prize ($500) is awarded for the most outstanding talk by a student or recent graduate (PhD completed in the calendar year of the annual meeting) at the Annual Meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Mathematical Physics (ANZAMP). The prize is named in honour of Professor Anthony J. Guttmann, who has been, and continues to be, a leading figure in the mathematical physics community in Australia. Among many distinctions, Tony Guttmann has a distinguished research record in statistical mechanics, was President of the Australian Mathematical Society and was one of the leading figures in the establishment of the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute. Tony is renowned for the guidance and wisdom he offers to his colleagues and students, and he is a tireless advocate of programs for talented students in mathematical physics, and mathematics more generally.

    IGA Australia–China Conference on Non-Commutative Geometry

    Dates & Venue: 18–22 December 2017
    Venue: The University of Adelaide, South Australia

    Noncommutative geometry (NCG) is a theory using algebra of operators to study a class of nonstandard spaces, initially arising from quantum mechanics. Over the past few decades, it developed into an active research area with connections to many branches of mathematics and physics. This conference will bring together leading experts and early career researchers working in several streams of NCG, namely, C*-algebra, dynamics, K-theory, representation theory and mathematical physics, to promote the dissemination of novel research findings. This conference is a great opportunity for research communications and collaborations between Australian and Chinese mathematicians, and between students and experts in this field.
