Women in Mathematical Sciences Dinner

Website Program

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. Registration and drinks will be available from 6:15 pm with dinner commencing at 6:45 pm. 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.

The Dinner is sponsored by ACEMS and the ARC Georgina Sweet Laureate Fellowship, held by Professor Kate Smith-Miles (University of Melbourne).

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. Check out the WIMSIG website for information on and advice from the female plenary speakers at this and past AustMS and ANZIAM conferences.

If you have any questions, please contact the organisers Melissa Humphries () and Judith Bunder ().

WIMSIG General Meeting


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.

Early-Career Workshop

The theme of this year's ECW will be "Making the most of your PhD: now and for your future career." Registration for the 2018 ECW is done as part of the registration of the Australian Mathematical Society Annual Meeting.

The workshop will be held at the Barcoo Function Centre, West Beach, Adelaide. Shared accommodation for participants will be provided at Adelaide Shores Resort, adjacent to the Function Centre.

Education Afternoon


The Education Afternoon will consist of three talks by professional mathematicians aimed at school teachers describing some interesting and cutting edge mathematics research and applications. In addition there will be some information about the CHOOSEMATHS programme, run by the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI), aimed at encouraging young girls to continue their studies in Mathematics. The afternoon can be counted towards professional development hours for secondary school teachers

The talks will be held from 3 pm to 6 pm on the 5th of December in Horace Lamb 422 (accessible via Hub Central) at the University of Adelaide.

If you wish to attend the Education Afternoon, please complete the registration form.

Australian Mathematical Sciences Student Conference


The Australian Mathematical Sciences Student Conference is held by students, for students, welcoming undergraduate, honours and postgraduate students from the mathematical sciences across the country. 2018 marks the 6th edition of the event, which will be held just prior to AustMS from the 28th to the 30th of November at UniSA. The conference aims to bring students together in a friendly, informal atmosphere, enabling them to communicate their work, facilitate dialogue, and encourage collaboration. Cash prizes will be awarded for the best presentations, and student support funding will be available via the generous support of AMSI.

Further details, including registration and plenary information, as well as deadlines for funding support and abstract submissions can be found at the event website.
