Expand your mathematical world

AMSI Summer School is an annual national training and networking event for honours and postgraduate students in the mathematical sciences and cognate disciplines, early career researchers and industry professionals looking to upskill.

Celebrating its 22nd year, Summer School 2024 returns to a four-week in person event hosted by Australian National University from 8 January – 2 February (virtual participation also available).
