The following is a list of conferences that we are aware of in the Australian region, or which may be of special interest to Australian mathematicians. A much broader list of international conferences is maintained by the American Mathematical Society.
Winter School 2014 : Geophysical Fluid Dynamics
The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science will host its 3rd annual winter school in the Research School of Earth Sciences at the Australian National University.
Venue: Research School of Earth Sciences, Australian National University, Canberra
The 2014 winter school theme is Geophysical Fluid Dynamics.
This is a high-level education program for honours and graduate students interested in climate science. It will be of considerable relevance to those working in the atmospheric and ocean sciences, and also those in land related disciplines with interest in the planetary boundary layer and land-atmopshere feedbacks.
The winter school will consist of a series of lectures and lab sessions delivered by Centre of Excellence researchers from our five universities and partner organisations. An advanced Python tutorial will be delivered by our Computational Modelling Support Team.
There is an expectation that students undertaking this winter school will be well-versed in the mathematics underpinning fluid dynamics, including partial differential equations and vector calculus.
Applications open January 2014. To apply, please complete the application form.

Interactions between Operator Algebras and Dynamical Systems
Dates: 30 June – 4 July 2014
Venue: University of Wollongong
International experts Søren Eilers (Univ. Copenhagen) and Douglas Lind (Univ. Washington) will each give a four-part lecture series as an introduction to interesting open problems in operator algebras (Eilers) and dynamical systems (Lind). The lecture series will be accessible to PhD students. There will also be several more advanced talks from international and local speakers on interactions between the two topics.
AMSI Winter School 2014 : Contemporary Aspects of Cryptography
Date & Venue: 7–18 July 2014; University of Queensland
Cryptography is the practice and study of techniques for secure communication in the presence of third parties; that is, making codes and breaking codes. Historically, cryptography has effectively been synonymous with encryption and decryption. Modern cryptography involves sometimes surprising intersections of mathematics, computer science, and electrical engineering.
Discover contemporary cryptography and its modern applications Hear from eminent national and international lecturers Learn mathematical tools and techniques used in research in cryptography Understand key aspects of current research in cryptography Uncover the link with mathematics, computer science and electrical engineering Build collaborative networks with other PhD students and early career researchers Expand your skills in the mathematical sciences
The first week consists of relatively broad courses, designed to give participants an introduction to the mathematical tools and techniques used in research in this area. Specialised advanced courses through the second week build on this basis, to give participants an understanding of some aspects of current research in the area. The invited speakers are eminent national and international lecturers.
An intensive world-class program in advanced postgraduate mathematics.
The AMSI Winter School in the Mathematical Sciences is based on successful US and European models. Since 2004, the Winter School has become an annual event, hosted by the University of Queensland.
Postgraduate students in the mathematical sciences and cognate disciplines from around Australia and internationally attend the Winter School.
Register your expression of interest.
The 9th annual AMSI Winter School:
Contemporary Aspects of Cryptography
Dates & Venue: 7–18 July 2014; University of Queensland, St Lucia, Brisbane.
Hear from eminent national and international lecturers
Discover contemporary cryptography and its modern applications
Learn mathematical tools and techniques used in research
Understand key aspects of current research in cryptography
Find the link with mathematics, computer science and electrical engineering
Build networks with other PhD students and early career researchers
Expand your skills in the mathematical sciences
This School is open to both AMSI members and non-members who are domestic and international undergraduate, honours and post-graduate students, researchers and employees working or undertaking research in or around the following areas:
- related areas of mathematics
- cognate disciplines such as quantum science, computer science and electrical engineering.
Structure for two weeks
The first week consists of relatively broad courses, designed to give participants an introduction to the mathematical tools and techniques used in research in this area.
- DEADLINE: FRIDAY 2 MAY 2014 (click here)
Students, please note that registration does not guarantee a place at the Winter School. Final acceptance and offers of financial support is at the discretion of the Winter School Director.
There are also a limited number for travel and accommodation scholarships available to students and ECRs. In particular preference for financial support will be given to postgraduate students who can demonstrate how the program will enhance their further studies. In exceptional cases, highly qualified honours students will also be considered for support.
Registration for separate weeks is available to researchers and employees.
AN INTENSIVE WORLD-CLASS PROGRAM IN ADVANCED POSTGRADUATE MATHEMATICS
The AMSI Winter School in the Mathematical Sciences is based on successful US and European models. Since 2004, the Winter School has become an annual event, hosted by The University of Queensland.
The Winter School is one of AMSI's flagship higher-education programs, which comprise vacation schools (Summer School, Winter School and BioInfoSummer), Vacation Research Scholarships and the AMSI intern program. The annual AMSI vacation schools and scholarships are funded jointly by the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education and the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute.

The AMSI/AustMS conference on geometric analysis and stochastic methods in geometry
Dates: 21–25 July 2014
Venue: University of Queensland, St Lucia, Brisbane
The conference will bring together prominent international and Australian experts in geometric analysis. The focus will be on three areas, which are currently enjoying a particularly large amount of attention:
- heat kernels
- equations involving the Ricci curvature
- the Willmore functional.
As these areas are closely related to each other, the conference will aim to promote and facilitate interactions between mathematicians working in them. The list of speakers will include prominent experts in stochastic differential geometry. They will introduce their audiences to new approaches to problems in geometric analysis, thereby adding a further dimension to the meeting.
