The Australian Mathematical Sciences Student Conference is an annual conference for Australian honours and postgraduate students from mathematical sciences and related disciplines. The conference aims to bring students together to enable them to communicate their work, facilitate dialogue, and encourage collaboration, all within a friendly and informal atmosphere. The 2018 edition of the conference will run from the 28th of November until the 30th of November, immediately prior to the AustMS conference. Student support funding is available via the generous support of AMSI.
We are delighted to bring you three outstanding early to mid career plenary speakers from across the country to talk about their research and work. We will be announcing an invited speaker each week from the 15th of August.
All students in attendance are encouraged to give a talk. It is not mandatory to give a presentation to come to the event, but you do need to give a talk if you wish to apply for the Student Support Scheme. Talks will run for 20 minutes with an additional 5 minutes for questions. Please submit talk titles and abstracts (maximum 300 words) to amssc2018 - at - gmail - dot - com. Latex is the preferred format, but it is not mandatory. Abstract submissions close on the 10th November. You can still submit an abstract after this date, however it will not appear in the conference booklet.
Students giving a talk at this conference are eligible for the AMSI/AustMS Student Support Scheme, covering up to half of travel, registration and childcare costs. Full details can be seen on their website (details below).
You may apply directly on the AustMS Student Support Scheme webpage. Please note that the deadline for the Student Support Scheme is the 14th September: this deadline is firm so please make sure you send in your applications before the due date.
Note: students are eligible to apply for support for both AustMS AND AMSSC.
The conference will be held at the University of South Australia’s City West campus. Further details and downloadable maps will be available in September.
Adelaide Backpackers and Travellers Inn
The easiest way to get around Adelaide is to get a metro card. You can buy a metro card from the airport when you arrive in Adelaide. You are also still able to purchase single trip tickets with cash onboard buses, trains, trams. The City West campus is located in the CBD, so whilst there is paid parking available it is easier to catch public transport. We will provide more comprehensive details about transport, such as to and from the airport, closer to the conference date.
