Member Societies


The Council was formed to give a more cohesive voice to the mathematical sciences. The close connections with its formation and FASTS underpin its aims. FASTS is a political lobby group, and AMSC is the umbrella group by which the mathematical sciences can lobby government. It is also clearly a forum for the exchange of ideas and information across the member societies and for the promotion of the mathematical sciences in the wider community.

In recent years, AMSC has collaborated closely with the National Committee for Mathematic Sciences (NCMS) of the Australian Academy of Science. The NCMS is concerned with maintenance of Australia's research base in the mathematical sciences and with international liaison.
