On behalf of the Statistical Society of Australia and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, the organising committee invite you to register your interest in attending the joint:
Australian Statistical Conference
Institute of Mathematical Statistics Annual Meeting
Dates & Venue: 7–10 July 2014; Australian Technology Park, Sydney, Australia
Delegates from all areas of statistics will join with world class Australian and International statisticians and mathematicians to develop, network and share their knowledge and expertise. In 2014 the Statistical Society of Australia will hold its biennial Australian Statistical Conference in conjunction with the IMS Annual meeting. The Conference will provide opportunities for presentations on a wide range of topics and recognises the role that statistics plays in all aspects of modern life.
The conference objectives are to:
- attract world class statisticians to share their knowledge and expertise;
- inform delegates about new work and developments in statistics, probability and mathematical statistics;
- provide an opportunity for professionals from all of these aforementioned areas to network, present and discuss ideas.
Topics of interest include: spatial statistics, bayesian statistics, computational and asymptotic statistics, sample surveys/methodology, stochastic/statistical modelling, biostatistics, multivariate statistics, probability, mathematical statistics, econometrics and financial statistics.

Geometric and Asymptotic Group Theory with Applications
The eighth edition of the conference series GAGTA (Geometric and Asymptotic Group Theory with Applications) will be held:
Dates & Venue: 21–25 July 2014; Newcastle, Australia.
GAGTA is a series of conferences organised periodically, since 2006, by researchers in Group Theory all over the world.
GAGTA conferences are devoted to the study of a variety of areas in Geometric and Combinatorial Group Theory, including asymptotic and probabilistic methods, as well as algorithmic and computational topics involving groups. In particular, areas of interest include group actions, isoperimetric functions, growth, asymptotic invariants, random walks, algebraic geometry over groups, algorithmic problems and their complexity, generic properties and generic complexity, and applications to non-commutative cryptography.
More details will be available soon.
International Congress of Mathematicians, 2014
Dates: 13–21 August
Venue: COEX Convention & Exhibition Center, Seoul, Korea
Hosted by: The Korean Mathematical Society.
The International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM) is the largest international congress in the mathematics community. It is held once every four years under the auspices of the International Mathematical Union (IMU). The Fields Medals, the Nevanlinna Prize, the Gauss Prize, and the Chern Medal are awarded during the opening ceremony on the first day of the congress. Each congress is memorialized by printed Proceedings recording academic papers based on invited talks intended to reflect the current state of the science.
The Korean mathematical community is delighted to host the next congress in Seoul, Korea in 2014. We will make every effort to make SEOUL ICM 2014 a turning point for mathematics; to reach out to the public and to be recognized and valued by society.
