The annual Heidelberg Laureate Forum brings together winners of the most prestigious scientific awards in Mathematics and Computer Science and a select group of talented young researchers.

This year AMSI in partnership with AustMS has funded five students to travel to Germany. Find out about their research and their hopes for the HLF.

FUNDING FUELS WORK-READINESS OF PHDS



Eight AMSI member universities have partnered with AMSI Intern to boost industry-academic collaborations and improve the work-readiness of Australian postgraduate students. The program increases the penetration of Australian graduates with advanced research expertise into the private sector, boosting innovation and business-university collaboration.

PREREQUISITES HIT THE HEADLINES


AMSI released the fourth discipline profile of the mathematical sciences on 4 August. Last year teaching out-of-field was the hot topic; this year it is prerequisites – or the lack there of. A staggering 86 per cent of science degrees do not have intermediate mathematics as an entry prerequisite.

Find out about AMSI's vision for a maths nation.

WELCOME TO INGE KOCH



Assoc. Prof. Koch joins AMSI as Executive Director of the Choose Maths program. We asked her a little about her stats, her life and her goals for the secondment with us.

Her research interests include statistical learning and data science involving new statistical methods and theory for high-dimensional data and their applications, in particular to proteomics and cancer research.

SLIPPERY EELS OF PROBABILITY



[http://staticapp.icpsc.com/icp/loadimage.php/mogile/1261883/47cbad3872fd26776ce10622b49ed9d3/image/jpeg]We are trained to think that maths problems always have one correct answer. But this is not necessarily true

for problems of probability.
