“The Winter School was an experience I shall cherish forever. The course content highlighted the importance of mathematics and statistics in data science and also broke down abstract concepts into simpler ones. Networking with participants from diverse academic backgrounds and industry experience gave me a valuable insight.”

Developing the Next Generation of Mathematical Scientists

The aim of AMSI Winter School 2021 is to develop the next generation of mathematical scientists to work in the exciting field of statistical data science. Our impressive line-up of expert speakers will build knowledge in this field, and introduce students to cutting edge research and methodologies.

Hosted by Queensland University of Technology this winter, the School is designed for postgraduate students and early-career researchers in the mathematical sciences and cognate disciplines. Students and early-career researchers working specifically in this area are encouraged to attend: however, the school is also a great opportunity for those working in other areas of the mathematical sciences to strengthen their mathematics toolkit.
