EVENTS

CONFERENCE

International Conference on Fixed Point Theory and Its Applications

Mon, 24th Jul 2017 — Fri, 28th Jul 2017
Harbourview Function Centre (Newcastle, NSW)

This conference will bring together leading experts and researchers in fixed point theory to assess new developments, ideas and methods in this important and dynamic field. A special emphasis will be put on applications in related areas, as well as other sciences, such as the natural sciences, medicine, economics and engineering. Details about the conference are available on the conference web site.

WORKSHOP

Interactions Between Semigroups and Operator Algebras

Mon, 24th Jul 2017 — Thu, 27th Jul 2017
Noah's On the Beach (Newcastle, NSW)

The aim of this workshop is to bring together the world's foremost experts on the theory of semigroups and their relationships to other fields of mathematics such as operator algebras and totally disconnected locally compact groups. This workshop will allow the international leaders in the field to come to Australia to teach young Australian ECRs, and to forge new collaborations with Australian mathematicians.

Details are available on the conference website.

These are the events in the next 7 days. For more, see the events page.

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.
