ACEMS 2020 Virtual Retreat

When: 

2-6 November 2020

Conference / Workshop

The ACEMS Annual Retreat is an opportunity for the ACEMS community to come together, celebrate and share the Centre's achievements and research from the past year, as well as discuss the vision and goals for the coming year. Due to the COVID 19 situation with lockdown and travel restrictions in Australia, the 2020 retreat will primarily be held online.

ACEMS Virtual Public Lecture - When mathematics becomes art...the unexpected beauty of self-evolving mathematical functions

When: 

Weds, 7 October: 12 pm - 1 pm AEDT

Public talks

In this talk, Professor Kate Smith-Miles will describe how her research quest to generate mathematical functions that are challenging and “stress-test” optimisation algorithms has led to a large collection of intricate and beautiful 2D images, arising as contour plots of mathematical functions that have been mathematically generated to create challenging landscapes.

ACEMS Virtual Public Lecture - Analytics and Bikes: Riding Tandem with Motivate to Improve Mobility

When: 

Wednesday 2 September, 11am-12pm AEST

Public talks

In this lecture, Professor Shane Henderson, Cornell University, discusses how mathematics, statistics and computational methods improved bike sharing systems, describing the problems his team tackled and the methods developed, providing a taste of a few ideas from the field of operations research that lie at the core of their work.

Virtual Public Lecture - Looking at the Great Barrier Reef from organisms to ecosystems: how maths can help translate observed patterns into management-ready information

When: 

Tuesday 14 July, 12.30pm-1.30pm

Public talks

In this lecture, Dr Ortiz will highlight how he has used relatively simple mathematics to help understand and contextualize patterns in empirical and experimental observations to reach conclusions that are relevant for the management of the Great Barrier Reef.

 

ACEMS COVID-19 Research Workshop

When: 

Wednesday, 17 June, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

Conference / Workshop

** For Centre members only **

We are aware that many ACEMS members are working on projects related to COVID-19, and we thought that it would be of interest to share our collective efforts with others in the Centre. 

We are therefore soliciting interest in participating in a three-hour ACEMS workshop over Zoom to be held on Wednesday 17th of June, 9:30am – 12:30pm. The first part of the workshop will comprise short presentations (max 10 minutes) and the second part will be devoted to discussion. 

Public Lecture: Behavioural Big Data and Healthcare Research

When: 

POSTPONED

Public talks

About this Event

Behavioural Big Data (BBD) is a growing area of interest for healthcare researchers. However, the way in which health researchers utilise this powerful analytical tool can differ markedly from its traditional use.

Monash Business School and the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS) invite you to a special public lecture, presented by Professor Galit Shmueli, on the challenges and dilemmas around the use of BBD.

ANZAMP 2020

4 - 7 February, 2020

Conference / Workshop

ACEMS is a proud sponsor of the Eighth Annual Meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Mathematical Physics (ANZAMP) being held this year in Tweed Heads, NSW.

ANZIAM 2020

When: 

2 - 6 February 2020

The Australia and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ANZIAM) Conference. The annual conference is being held in Hunter Valley, NSW

Data Science Down Under

When: 

8 - 12 December, 2019

Conference / Workshop

The aim of the workshop is to bring together Australian researchers and practitioners as well as key international academics in areas related to data science, e.g., mathematics, statistics and computer science, to discuss recent advancements, share ideas and foster new local and international collaborations. 

Bayes on the Beach 2019

When: 

25 - 27 November, 2019

Conference / Workshop

Bayes on the Beach is a biennial conference held in Australia, organised by the Bayesian Research & Applications Group (BRAG) in collaboration with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical & Statistical Frontiers  (ACEMS); the Australasian chapter of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA); the Statistical Society of Australia (SSA) Bayesian Statistics Section; and Queensland University of Technology (QUT). This meeting has been held for almost 15 years and is a small gathering of Bayesians drawn from across Australia and around the world.

OzViz 2019

When: 

21-22 November 2019

Conference / Workshop

OzViz is an informal get­-together for researchers from around Australia and New Zealand to discuss Scientific Visualisation. It's an opportunity to meet with peers, see what the hot topics are and what is happening across the Australasian and Pacific Region.

MathsCraft Immersive PD Workshop

When: 

20 - 24 Nov 2019 (Wed - Sun)

Mathscraft

MathsCraft - Doing maths like a research mathematician

Enabling your students to work in a way that is similar to the way a research mathematician works can dramatically change the classroom experience, for the better. Would you like to find out how, for example, a topic like Pythagoras' Theorem could be approached a little differently?

This immersive professional development event will give you more information about the MathsCraft program, and equip you to run MathsCraft problem sessions for your own class as well as for schools in your local area.
