Mathēmatica Sōlis et Terrae — an Australian Academy of Science,
Elizabeth and Frederick White Research Conference.
This event was originally scheduled in the MSI Special Year 2020 — Mathematical Physics
calendar but has been rescheduled to 2021 due to COVID-19.
Dates: 2–3 December 2021
Venue: Mathematical Sciences Institute, Hanna Neumann Building, ANU; Canberra, ACT
The rapid progress and expansion of computational power will soon reach the exascale, and provide the compute to solve a new class of problems. The enabling science of high-performance computing is computational mathematics: permitting solution to high dimensional problems, improve the efficiency of calculation, and robustly quantify uncertainty.
Mathēmatica Sōlis et Terrae: An Australian Academy of Science — Elizabeth and Frederick White Research Conference, is a two-day research conference. It will bring together a diverse group of disciplines to share challenges and explore synergies in high performance computing simulation in the fields of the solid earth (geophysics), land-atmosphere carbon exchange (earth systems science), and solar physics.
The conference will cover topics in numerical analysis (e.g. Galerkin methods, spline-based techniques, sparse-grids, uncertainty quantification and matching layers) and applications in geophysics, earth system science and solar and astrophysics.
Registrations for this conference are now open.

Code of conduct
The Mathematical Sciences Institute (MSI) Special Year is committed to ensuring all workshops, conferences and seminars are accessible to a diverse range of participants. We aim to create a safe, respectful and supportive environment to allow free flow of information, discussions and ideas. All staff and students have the right to be treated with courtesy, fairness and professionalism. Discriminatory or harassing behaviour will not be tolerated.
An essential part of maintaining a safe and respectful work environment is to ensure that individuals report any witnessed or experienced discrimination or harassment to the organisers, or to a member of the MSI staff.
