The Australian Mathematical Sciences Student Conference is an annual conference for Australian honours and postgraduate students from mathematical sciences and related disciplines. The conference aims to bring students together to enable them to communicate their work, facilitate dialogue, and encourage collaboration, all within a friendly and informal atmosphere. Registration for the event is only AUD$20-30 (discounts available for undergraduates and AustMS members), which also includes the conference dinner.
The 2018 edition of the conference will run from 12.30pm Wednesday 28th November through to the evening of Friday 30th November. The conference dinner will be held on the 29th November at the King's Head Pub; and a preliminary schedule is available below.
We can still take additional registrations (but not talks) - if you would like to participate please email us ASAP and let us know!
We are delighted to bring you three outstanding early to mid career plenary speakers from across the country to talk about their research and work. We will be announcing an invited speaker each week from the 15th of August.
All students in attendance are encouraged to give a talk. It is not mandatory to give a presentation to come to the event, but you do need to give a talk if you wish to apply for the Student Support Scheme. We will also have cash prizes for the best presentations! Talks will run for 20 minutes with an additional 5 minutes for questions. Please submit talk titles and abstracts (maximum 300 words) to amssc2018 - at - gmail - dot - com. Latex is the preferred format, but it is not mandatory. Abstract submissions close on the 19th of November. You can still submit an abstract after this date, however it may not appear in the conference booklet.
Students giving a talk at this conference are eligible for the AMSI/AustMS Student Support Scheme, covering up to half of travel, registration and childcare costs. Full details can be seen on their website (details below).
You may apply directly on the AustMS Student Support Scheme webpage. Please note that the deadline for the Student Support Scheme is the 14th September: this deadline is firm so please make sure you send in your applications before the due date.
Note: students are eligible to apply for support for both AustMS AND AMSSC.
The conference will be held at the University of South Australia’s City West campus. We will be based in rooms HH3-08 and HH3-09 of the Sir Hans Heysen Building (Google Maps). The campus map can be seen below or a pdf downloaded here.
The conference dinner will be at the King's Head Pub, on the corner of King William and Sturt St. It is a 20-25 minute walk or you can take a 10 minute tram trip from the City West tram stop to the City South stop to go virtually door to door.
Adelaide Backpackers and Travellers Inn
All domestic and international flights arrive and depart from Terminal 1 at Adelaide Airport, located close to the Adelaide CBD. The easiest way to get around Adelaide is to get a metro card. You can buy a metro card from the airport when you arrive in Adelaide at a ticket vending machine. You are also still able to purchase single trip tickets with cash onboard buses, trains, trams. The City West campus is located in the CBD, so whilst there is paid parking available it is easier to catch public transport.
When you exit the airport, either walk straight across the plaza to the road (if someone is picking you up), or, for all other transport walk across the plaza to the left of the main carpark building - this includes buses, taxis or rideshare services. A map can be seen below or downloaded here.
Buses: The JetExpress (J1X) bus travels without intermediate stops in both directions between the Adelaide CBD and Adelaide Airport on weekdays. This bus operates on the standard MetroCard and Metroticket. The J1, J1A (every day) and J1H (weekends only) also travel between the airport and Adelaide CBD.
Taxis: Taxi fares leaving the airport incur a $2 levy. A taxi from the airport to the Adelaide CBD will cost about $30, but possibly more in peak times with traffic.
Rideshare: In our experience rideshare services are about 20% cheaper than a taxi, but this may change in peak times.
