The AMSI 2008 Australian Graduate Theme Program in
Mathematical Sciences is funded by the Australian Government
Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations through
the Collaboration And Structural Reform Fund (CASR).
This year, two advanced courses are being offered
on the theme of Statistics for Resource Management and
Environmental Science. These courses will run for
two weeks from 7 to 18 July 2008.
These courses are aimed at postgraduate students and
mathematics and related disciplines and will be
presented by distinguished overseas-based
Statistical Tools for Environmental Problems
will be presented by Prof Peter Guttorp of the University of
Modeling and Analysis of Event History Data and
will be presented by Prof Vijay Nair of the University of Michigan.
Participants are required to attend both courses.
In addition to these courses, participants
will have the opportunity to present their own research during
the Graduate Theme Program. Each participant will be required to present a seminar
of 25 minutes on a topic related to their research
interests, preferably linked to the program theme.
