Climate Change Forum
Start: Wed 2 May 2012
End: Wed 2 May 2012
Location: Basement Theatre, Spot Building, 6.30 to 8.30pm
Climate change presents nations world wide with complex and challenging policy dilemmas. This Forum aims to help typical Australian households understand what current policies will mean for them personally, and ultimately to help them decide if climate change policy should sway their vote at the next Federal election. Government and Opposition spokespersons will seek to explain the consequences of their current policies for households in simple and specific terms, using relevant quantitative data. What will happen to prices and the cost of living? How will households be compensated? Will the policy help ensure that emission targets are met? What will the longer term impact be on job opportunities and the economy? Other panelists will provide independent perspectives on the economic, social and ethical issues.- More information...
The 4th mini-conference on Probability Theory & its Applications
Start: Tue 27 Mar 2012
End: Tue 27 Mar 2012
Location: Old Geology Building, Theatre 1, The University of Melbourne
We are delighted to announce that a "micro-conference" on Probability Theory & Its Applications proudly supported by MASCOS will be held at the University of Melbourne on Tuesday, 27 March 2012 afternoon (16:15-19:05). There will be four 30+5' talks, to be followed by a dinner.

2012 Summer Workshop: Random Media and Random Walks
Start: Sun 8 Jan 2012
End: Fri 13 Jan 2012
Location: Nelson, New Zealand
This workshop, presented by New Zealand Mathematics Research Institute and New Zealand Institute of Mathematics & its Applications, will consist mainly of 6-8 mini-courses (3 50-minute talks) presented by distinguished international speakers, on some of the many interesting topics in probability theory and statistical physics. The workshop may be of interest to mathematics PhD students in probability, statistical physics, analysis, and discrete mathematics. There will also be an evening of seminars (and celebration, including dinner) in honour of Prof. Peter Whittle, on the evening of January 7 or 8, 2012. The theme of the seminars will be Stochastic modelling in physics, geophysics and communications. See the link below for further details.- More information...
Modelling and Decision Making in Ecological Systems
Start: Mon 12 Dec 2011
End: Fri 16 Dec 2011
Location: Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, Perth, Western Australia
Special Session: 19th Biennial Congress on Modelling and Simulation (MODSIM 2011). This session, co-presented by Phil Pollett and Peter Taylor, will bring together researchers with interests in modelling, optimisation and decision theory in ecological systems. Ecological should be interpreted to include epidemiology, and papers with a focus on conservation biology and/or stochasticity are particularly welcome. Selected papers from this session will appear in a special issue of "Ecological Modelling". See the website below for further details.- More information...

Start: Mon 5 Dec 2011
End: Fri 9 Dec 2011
Location: GTAC, Melbourne, Australia
The Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI), EMBL Australia, Bioplatforms Australia and The Walter Eliza Hall Institute are holding a summer school in bioinformatics. The event, AMSI Summer Symposium in Bioinformatics (BioinfoSummer 2011), is a major annual bioinformatics education and outreach program in Australia which draws over 120 participants who are interested in learning and applying bioinformatics. The program covers state-of-the-art technologies used in medical and biological research and also teaches fundamentals of bioinformatic data analysis. And this year we have a strong emphasis on Massively Parallel Sequencing technologies, with two full days on research projects and methods using these technologies.
