Summer School 2013 Wrap Up
SUMMER SCHOOL 2013
The 11th AMSI Summer School was hosted by the University of Melbourne from 7 January to 1 February 2013. The School is an exciting opportunity for mathematical sciences students from around Australia to come together over the summer break and develop their skills and networks.
Over four weeks students took innovative courses in new and emerging areas of the mathematical science as well as more traditional ones. The eight short courses were taught by hand picked lecturers from around Australia.
There were lots of social events including BBQs, public lectures, student seminars, the annual Summer School dinner and bowling.
The Careers Afternoon provided the opportunity for students to find out about career paths and meet prospective employers, companies such as Google, Ernst and Young, Bureau of Meteorology and the Commonwealth Bank attend.
Dr Keith Devlin, Stanford University, spoke at the Summer School dinner. His research focused on the use of different media to teach and communicate mathematics to diverse audiences. He also works on the design of information/reasoning systems for intelligence analysis.
