Bringing great minds together: Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013 - The Conference

A globalised world requires interdisciplinary co-operation. From 8 – 12 July, AMSI and the MPE partners will gather some of Australia’s top minds together to discuss how mathematical and related scientific disciplines can be utilised to better understand and solve issues related to the world around us. Local and international academics, researchers from Geoscience Australia, the Bureau of Meteorology, CSIRO, the Australian Bureau of Statistics and the MPE patron Ian Chubb will join industry representatives at Rydges Hotel on Exhibition Street in Melbourne for a week of lectures, breakout sessions and networking.

Director of AMSI, Professor Geoff Prince says “The overall goal is to strengthen current research and spark interdisciplinary collaboration”

The general public also has an opportunity to join in on 10 July, Professor Malcolm Sambridge, Head of Seismology and Mathematical Geophysics at Australian National University will be delivering a public lecture entitled The hidden Earth – How mathematics helps us see into our planet.
