QCIF is co-sponsoring this year’s AMSI Winter School, a mathematical science conference at The University of Queensland.
The online and in-person event, from 20 June to 1 July, develops the next generation of mathematical scientists, introducing them to cutting-edge research and methodologies in specialised themes.
QCIF Business Development and Communications Manager Troy Lockett said QCIF was looking forward to supporting the Winter School at UQ. “The guest speaker lineup and schedule for 2022 will make the event highly anticipated among students, early-career researchers, experienced mathematical scientists along with those from other fields of mathematics,” said Troy.
This year’s main theme of the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI)-hosted event is “New Directions in Representation Theory”.
Representation theory is the mathematical study of symmetries and has applications in a wide range of fields, including physics, chemistry, robotics, computer vision, and medical image analysis.
The program features lecturers at the forefront of their fields and is designed for postgraduate and early-career researchers in the mathematical sciences and cognate disciplines interested in exploring new directions in representation theory.
Keynote speakers include Professor Geordie Williamson (The University of Sydney), Dr Ting Xue (The University of Melbourne), Dr Asilata Bapat (The Australian National University), and Associate Professor Uri On (The Australian National University).
The Winter School will have up to 30 sponsored places for Australian-based postgraduate students and early-career researchers.
This year, AMSI is partnering with the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in the US to virtually host some of its students.
As part of the event, there will be a free public lecture held in-person and online about “Maths, AI and intuition” on Thursday, 30 June from 6pm–7:30pm (AEST) at UQ St Lucia.
