2013 is the International Year of the Mathematics of Planet Earth, and the 8th annual AMSI Winter School will be on this theme. The winter school is aimed at post-graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the mathematical sciences and cognate disciplines. The Winter School aims to enable participants to broaden and deepen their mathematical knowledge, and to build collaborative networks with other PhD students and early career researchers.

A series of mini-courses will be offered over the two-week long School. The courses in the first week will be more introductory in nature, and the courses in the second week will lead into current research problems. The courses cover a range of topics in the broad area of the mathematics of planet earth, and are offered by eminent national and international researchers.

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.
