  • 11/29/17--00:00: EMAC 2017
  • Wed, November 29, 2017 - Fri, December 1, 2017

    EMAC is the biennial meeting of the Engineering Mathematics Group (EMG), a special interest group of the Australian and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ANZIAM) division.

    This meeting provides a forum for researchers interested in the development and use of mathematical methods in engineering and applied mathematics. It aims to foster interactions between mathematicians and engineers, from both academia and industry.

    A long-running feature of EMAC is the inclusion of special sessions on engineering/mathematics education focusing on the needs of both engineering and applied mathematics undergraduates.

    The 13th EMAC will be held in Auckland, New Zealand from 29th November – 1st December 2017. For more information, please contact us at info@emac2017.com

    Australian Algebra Conference logo

    Australian Algebra Conference 01

    Dates: 27–29 November
    Venue: University of Technology Sydney, Sydney CBD.
    (Lecture space to be advised.)

    The event continues the proud tradition that was previously known as the Victorian Algebra conference.

    The aim of the annual Australian Algebra Conference is to foster communication between algebraists in Australia. We interpret algebra broadly, including areas such as topological algebra, algebraic logic, graph theory and coding theory. The conference is run by the Australian Algebra Group, which is a special interest group of the Australian Mathematical Society.

    We especially encourage students to attend and to present a talk.

    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.

    Gauge Theory and Higher Geometry
    A conference honouring Michael Murray's contributions to mathematics.

    Dates & Venue: 27 November – 1 December 2017
    Venue: Room 7.15, Level 7, Ingkarni Wardlii Building, The University of Adelaide, South Australia

    Michael Murray This meeting will bring together leading international and Australian researchers to discuss new developments in differential geometry, with a particular emphasis on the areas of gauge theory and higher geometry in recognition of the important contributions that Michael Murray has made to these fields over the last four decades.

    The meeting will feature talks by invited speakers on current research topics, which will both describe recent advances in the areas of the workshop as well as highlight applications of these topics to other important areas in mathematics and physics. In more detail, the format of the meeting will be as follows: morning talks, by keynote speakers (one of whom includes Professor Frances Kirwan, FRS), will be 1 hour in length, followed by shorter, more focussed, afternoon talks of 45 minutes duration. We have also scheduled breaks in the middle of the day during which we hope that participants will be able to hold productive discussions on aspects of the different research topics that are being presented.

    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.
