Graduate Talks in Geometry and Topology, (GT)^2, is an online symposium organised by and for graduate students, running fortnightly throughout Semester 1, 2021 starting on Tuesday 2 March. The symposium is designed to provide an opportunity for Australian graduate students in geometry and topology to present their research to a diverse audience, as well as […]

Michael P.H. Stumpf (University of Melbourne) & Jiayu Wen (Australian National University) Cells have been called the “natural levels of abstraction in biology”: they are the essential building blocks of multi-cellular organisms, and most life-forms on earth are single-celled organisms. Inside cells there are complex molecular processes and machineries at work, which in concert enable […]

Description: Motivated by the notion of entropy for continuous morphisms in a topological dynamical system, one can similarly define the notion of categorical entropy for endofunctors in triangulated categories. Computing entropy of a given endofunctor can be quite complicated – even in topology, many papers were devoted to introduce different methods of computing entropies for […]

Description: Category theory is a branch of mathematics which seeks to understand abstract mathematical structures and the relationships between them. Originating in investigations of connections between algebra and topology, category theory has broad applications across various branches of pure mathematics, as well as logic, computer science, linguistics and physics. This symposium will enable research students […]

PDE models in mathematical biology will be an online forum to hear from leaders in the Australian mathematical biology community, specifically those researchers who use partial differential equations in mathematical biology. The fully online half-day event will include three Australian keynote speakers from the mathematical biology community with plenty of opportunity for discussion with the […]

Description: Mathematical biology is a diverse, cross-disciplinary area of research at the interface of applied mathematics, statistics, biophysics and experimental science. Cross-collaboration between experts in these fields is quickly becoming requisite for impactful research. This online symposium will foster new collaborations and skill development across each of these fields through talks, lectorials in model calibration, […]

The recent drive in theoretical physics to unify gravity with the other fundamental forces has led to an explosion of activity at the interface between mathematics and physics, and conformal field theory has proven to be a particularly active and exciting example of this interaction. While conformal field theory was initially developed for physical purposes, […]

This workshop at The University of Sydney will bring together experts and emerging researchers from Australia, the USA and Europe to report on recent results and explore future directions in computational and algorithmic topology and related areas. There will be a focus on problems in discrete geometry and computational topology. This workshop aims to stimulate […]

The Statistical Society of Australia (SSA) will host the Early-Career & Student Statisticians Conference (ECSSC) 2021 virtually from July 26th to 1st August, 2021. The conference is aimed at developing, maintaining and improving contact and support amongst ECSSs working in various scientific disciplines, including agriculture, economics, bioinformatics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and environmental statistics. […]

Register now at Eventbrite This national and international two-day symposium will address the pressing challenge of how to Indigenise mathematical practice at Universities, both in education and research. The methodology is of collaboration and sharing of knowledge and worldviews from within both Indigenous cultures and the cultures of mathematics and its allied disciplines. The symposium […]
