Students must register and pay for the Conference in addition to applying for the Student Support Scheme, and must present a talk at the Conference.

Anne Penfold Street Awards

The AustMS WIMSIG Anne Penfold Street Awards provide additional financial support to Australian mathematicians for their caring responsibilities, while they travel for conferences or research visits to collaborators, with approximately four Awards awarded annually. The potential uses of these Awards include, but are not limited to, short-term childcare or professional carers for elderly relatives. These Awards are open to individuals studying/working/living in Australia, regardless of gender, or members of organizing committees for mathematics/statistics conferences to be held in Australia. The Awards are funded by the Australian Mathematical Society (AustMS) and are an initiative of the AustMS Women in Mathematics Special Interest Group (WIMSIG), which administers them. Awards are determined on a competitive basis by a selection committee of distinguished mathematicians, appointed by the Executive Committee of WIMSIG.

Applications for AustMS 2018 must be submitted by the 1st of October 2018 if assessment prior to the conference is required. Applications may also be submitted for assessment in the round immediately following the conference, which closes on the 1st of April 2019. Further details on applying are available on the Anne Penfold Street Awards website.

Cheryl E. Praeger Travel Awards

The AustMS WIMSIG Cheryl E. Praeger Travel Awards are designed to provide full or partial support for Australian female mathematicians to attend conferences or to visit collaborators, with approximately eight domestic Travel Awards and four international Travel Awards awarded annually. The Awards are funded by the Australian Mathematical Society (AustMS) and are an initiative of the AustMS Women in Mathematics Special Interest Group (WIMSIG), which administers them.

Applications for AustMS 2018 must be submitted by the 1st of October 2018 if assessment prior to the conference is required. Applications may also be submitted for assessment in the round immediately following the conference, which closes on the 1st of April 2019. Further details on applying are available on the Cheryl E. Praeger Travel Awards website.

WIMSIG General Meeting and Women in Mathematical Sciences Dinner

The Women in Mathematical Sciences Dinner will be held at The Playford, 120 North Tce, Adelaide, on the evening of Monday 3 December and is free to all participants, regardless of gender or membership of WIMSIG. Please arrive for a 6:45 pm start. The purpose of the dinner is to support women, and particularly early career researchers, to enter and establish careers in mathematics. Come along to hear about the careers of the AustMS 2018 female plenary speakers, to discuss issues concerning women in mathematics in Australia, and to network with fellow WIMSIG members and supporters.

Due to space restrictions there are only a limited number of tickets available, so make sure to register early if you wish to attend, and please only register for the Dinner if you are planning to attend. Further details are available on the associated events page.

The annual WIMSIG General Meeting will be held from 5 pm to 6 pm on the 3rd of December, just prior to the Women in Mathematical Sciences Dinner. As with the dinner, anyone interested in WIMSIG activities is welcome to attend. The venue is room H6-03 on Level 6 of the Hawke Building, City West Campus, University of South Australia, 55 North Tce, Adelaide.
