Applied Probability @ The Rock


17-21 April 2017

Applied Probability @ The Rock (AP@R) is an international workshop on Applied Probability, bringing together leading researchers from around the world to share recent discoveries and begin new collaborations. It also provides an opportunity to celebrate the 60th birthday of one of Australia's prominent Applied Probabilists, ACEMS Chief Investigator Professor Phil Pollett.

ACEMS Postdoc Workshop


20-22 March 2017

As discussed at the ACEMS Retreat last year, a workshop for ACEMS Postdoctoral Researchers and Research Associates in ACEMS will be held at the University of Queensland on 20-22 March 2017.

The aims of the workshop are as follows:

ACEMS/AMSI Workshop on Measuring Research Engagement and Impact in the Mathematical Sciences


Weds., 28 September 2016, 10 am - 4 pm

The aim of this workshop is to consider how the mathematical science research community should respond to the fact that its engagement and impact activities will be assessed differently by the government. For an enabling discipline such as mathematics, there are obvious challenges in this:  outside of applied mathematics and statistics, direct collaboration with industry is uncommon, and research commercialisation income is very low compared to other STEM disciplines.

Spot the Bull S...cience

Public talks

To celebrate National Science Week, and to demonstrate just how hard it is to get scientists to believe BS (bad science), The Science Nation is holding a contest of intelligence, interrogation and intimidation that sees a lineup of scientists each trying to have their peers believe complete and utter BS.

Awesome Reproducible Science with R


Wednesday, 17 August, 6 pm

Conference / Workshop

Coinciding with National Science Week, the theme of this meetup will be aspects of R that support reproducible science. We will explore RMarkdown for combining code and written analysis, devtools for turning your code into an installable package, and other reproducibility tips and tricks.

Workshop on Computational and Mathematical Foundations for Big Data Analytics


Monday 25th and Tuesday the 26th July, 2016

Conference / Workshop

The QUT node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS) will host a two-day workshop on Computational and Mathematical Foundations for Big Data Analytics. This event will run over Monday 25th and Tuesday the 26th July, 2016 at the QUT Gardens Point Campus in Brisbane

Joint Australia- Japan workshop on dynamical systems with applications in life sciences


18-21 July 2016

The focus of the workshop will be on current state-of-the-art work in applied dynamical systems and the participants will present on work in progress, rather than on finished work. These presentations can potentially be group presentations and time slots are organized as follows, 30 minutes presentation followed by 30 minutes discussions. For students the same format, but shorter, will be followed: 5 minutes short presentation followed by 10 minutes discussion.
