Effective Visualisation

in the

Mathematical Sciences 3

Tuesday, 13th November, 2018

X602, NewSpace (City Campus), The University of Newcastle



"A heavy warning used to be given [by lecturers] that pictures are not rigorous; this has never had its bluff called and has permanently frightened its victims into playing for safety. Some pictures, of course, are not rigorous, but I should say most are (and I use them whenever possible myself)."

J. E. Littlewood, 1885-1977

A PART OF CARMA'S SPECIAL SEMESTER ON MATHEMATICAL THINKING
Workshop delegates may wish to extend their stay and attend the other workshops, "Diagrammatic Reasoning in Higher Education" (9-11 November) and "Mathematical Thinking" (14-16 November).

About EViMS

Sometimes it's easier to see than to say.

EViMS was founded by Jonathan Borwein, Michael Barnsley and Judy-anne Osborn, in recognition of the significance of visualisation in the Mathematical Sciences and the increasing opportunities to do so with modern tools. Previous EViMS conferences spanned a broad swathe of this potential, demonstrating diverse computing technologies as well as mathematical sculpture, and the points of interface between the two by utilising tools such as 3D printers. The previous conferences spanned mathematics research and mathematics education, illustrating the productive synergy that may exist between the two. We the organising committee intend that this upcoming EViMS will continue to provoke and promote creativity and cross-fertilisation in these spaces.

Speakers

The following speakers have been confirmed and others will be added soon.

Accommodation Suggestions

There are two main areas with hotels and backpacker accommodation — Newcastle East and Honeysuckle, within easy walking distance of each other and the conference venue. Honeysuckle is a popular area with lots of restaurants with great views across the harbour. Additionally, the website wotif.com sometimes has good deals.
