11th AMSI Summer School

Dates & Venue : 7 January to 1 February 2013; University of Melbourne.

The School is an exciting opportunity for mathematical sciences students from around Australia to come together over the summer break and develop their skills and networks.

Over four weeks students take innovative courses in new and emerging areas of the mathematical science as well as more traditional ones. The eight short courses are taught by hand-picked lecturers from around Australia.

There are lots of social events including BBQs, public lectures, student seminars, the annual Summer School dinner and anything from picnics to rock climbing and paint balling.

The Careers Afternoon provides the opportunity to find out about career paths and meet prospective employers, companies such as Google, Ernst and Young, Bureau of Meteorology and the Commonwealth Bank attend.

Dr Keith Devlin (Stanford University) will speak at the Summer School dinner. His current research focuses on the use of different media to teach and communicate mathematics to diverse audiences. He also works on the design of information/reasoning systems for intelligence analysis.

The annual Summer School is funded jointly by the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education and the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute.
