Association of Australian Mathematics Students (AAMS) Launch

At the recent AustMS meeting in Brisbane, a new student association within AustMS was launched. AAMS will be student run and entirely focused on student centric activities. The fundamental and most important objectives of AAMS are to provide support to mathematics students in their studies and research, and to promote and bolster their mathematical knowledge. AAMS’ motto is “empowering the mathematical minds of the future”. All student members of AustMS are now members of AAMS and membership will be free.

Computational Techniques and Applications Conference (CTAC2022), 29 November to 2 December 2022, QUT (Brisbane)

The 21st Biennial Computational Techniques and Applications Conference (CTAC2022) will be held at QUT in Brisbane from 29 November to 2 December 2022.

The conference website is:  Registrations will open soon.

CTAC is organised by the special interest group in computational techniques and applications of ANZIAM, the Australian and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics Division of the Australian Mathematical Society.

The meetings provide an interactive forum for researchers interested in the development and use of computational methods applied to engineering, scientific and other problems. The CTAC meetings have been taking place biennially since 1981, the most recent being held online in 2020 at the University of New South Wales.

Please contact with any questions or comments related to the conference.

ICM2022 Down Under @SMRI, 6–8 July 2022

Sydney Mathematical Research Institute (SMRI) Sydney, 6–8 July 2022, register here:

The official International Congress of Mathematics 2022 will now take place as a virtual event. Sydney Mathematical Research Institute (SMRI) will attempt to create some of the usual spirit of the ICM.

The local event will feature talks by the Australia based invited speakers, presentations on the work of the Fields medallists, and interactive streaming of plenary and special session talks selected by the participants of ICM2022 Down Under.

Live talks will be given by Regina Burachik (University of South Australia, Section 16 – Control Theory and Optimisation) and George Willis (University of Newcastle, Section 2 – Algebra).

The ICM Down Under will conclude with a twilight talk by SMRI Director Geordie Williamson on Friday evening (8 July 20:00 AEST). The talk will be recorded and broadcasted by the London Mathematical Society (virtual ICM public lecture, 8 July 12:00 BST).

The IMU Awards Ceremony, Prize Winners’ Lectures and ICM 2022

On 5 July 2022, the International Mathematical Union (IMU) prizes – Fields Medals, IMU Abacus Medal, Chern Medal Award, Carl Friedrich Gauss Prize and Leelavati Prize – will be announced at an award ceremony, which will be held live in Helsinki, Finland at Aalto University (Runeberginkatu 14–16, Aalto Töölö, 00100 Helsinki).  Note that the IMU Abacus Medal replaces the Nevanlinna prize.  A limited number of places are available for those who wish to attend the ceremony in person. But registration is required. A live stream of the award ceremony and further details on the event can be found here:

On 6 July 2022, the 2022 Fields Medallists and IMU Abacus Medallist will give their prize winner lectures live at Aalto University. Admission to the lectures will be open to all who wish to attend. The lectures will also be streamed live via the virtual ICM 2022 platform. This requires registration for the ICM 2022.

Participation in the virtual ICM is free of charge but access requires registration. Anyone who wishes to register but hasn’t done so yet should do it very soon. See further information on registration and the schedule of the ICM here:
