EViMS 2: Effective use of Visualisation in the Mathematical Sciences

Location: Canberra (Australian National University)
Date: 9:00 am, Fri, 21st Nov 2014

The Mathematical Sciences Institute will host a three day workshop on more effective use of visualization in mathematics, physics, and statistics, from the perspectives of education, research and outreach. This is the second EViMS meeting, following the highly successful one held in Newcastle in November 2012. Our aim for the workshop is to help mathematical scientists understand the opportunities, risks and benefits of visualization, in research and education, in a world where visual content and new methods are becoming ubiquitous.

MEMBERSHIP

Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
