Who is AMSI?

The Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) is the collaborative enterprise of Australia’s mathematical sciences. It exists to give independence to our disciplines and provide infrastructure so that we can take initiatives on the national and international stage. These measures fall largely into three classes – research and higher education, school education and engagement with the industrial and commercial world.

What is Summer School?

The Summer School is a four-week residential school in the mathematical sciences and cognate disciplines.

Eight exciting subjects given by eminent lecturers from around Australia give you the opportunity to study areas that may not be available at your university.  You can choose to take one or two of the subjects that are on offer. You may be able to take these subjects for credit at your home institution.

There’s plenty of time to meet your fellow students, relax and start thinking about your future. Program extras include icebreaker events, special guest lectures, careers and women in mathematics events.

Who should attend?

The school is primarily for honours and postgraduate students in the mathematical sciences and cognate disciplines, but all with a suitable background are welcome to attend.
