Summer School 2016 Wrap Up
SUMMER SCHOOL 2016
The AMSI Summer School is one of the key events on the calendar of the Australian mathematical sciences community, due to its focus on mentoring and engaging with the new cohort of emerging mathematical talent in Australia, and its role in public engagement and outreach.
The AMSI Summer School provides the opportunity for students to build both professional networks and peer friendships, which will aid them in their future careers. Students gain valuable knowledge from the specialised subjects offered, and they are exposes to some of the best young lecturing talent in Australia, while the Careers Afternoon remains an important activity for students seeking input into future career paths.
The Public Lecture was highly successful, with over 200 members of the public attending Margaret Wertheim’s talk on “Corals, Carbon and the Cosmos: The Story of Hyperbolic Space”.
AMSI Summer School 2016 was funded jointly by the Department of Education and Training, and the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, and supported by RMIT University, AustMS, ANZIAM, Australian Government Department of Defence, BHP Billiton Foundation (part of the Choose Maths initiative), CSIRO, City West Water, and Optiver.
