2020 is a Special Year in Mathematics Communication, hosted by the Mathematical Education Research Group in CARMA.
Upcoming events include:
- MISG: 28 Jan – 1 Feb
- MathsCraft: 14 Mar
- Writing Mathematics proposals for the ARC workshop: TBA
- EVIMS: TBA
- MESIG: December
as well as regular seminars during the teaching semesters. Events and seminars will address the increasing importance of mathematics communication for and amongst a wide range of contexts and audiences, including across disciplines and industries, with the general public, and in education from kindergarten to PhD.
Further information and details of events will appear on the MathsComm web page.
Mathematics of Sea Ice and Ice Sheets
Monday, 9th Nov 2020 — Friday, 13th Nov 2020V205, Mathematics Building
The cryosphere is one of the critical components of the earth climate systems, and it has been the subject of significant transformation in recent years in response to climate change. There are several mathematical challenges to modelling this system, and the program aims to bring other researchers who are experts in the mathematical modelling of ice sheets and sea ice, two related but separated parts of the cryosphere. We anticipate the workshop will run for five days, with the first day being devoted to introductory lectures and the final day been given over to focused research sessions.
