Membership InformationThe Australian Mathematical Society is the national society of the mathematics profession in Australia. Founded in 1956, its constitution lists as its objects the promotion and extension of mathematical knowledge and its applications.
In aiming to do this, the Society, among other things, publishes mathematical journals, fosters communication among its members through the publication of its Gazette, and organizes and supports mathematical conferences in Australasia. It also makes grants to promote mathematical investigations and encourages mathematical education by the award of prizes. It is actively involved in making the community at large more aware of the importance and benefits of mathematics.
The Australian Mathematical Society consists of a wide variety of mathematicians with diverse interests in different branches of mathematics and employed in many difference areas in the community: universities, industrial and commercial enterproses, research institutions, secondary education and so on. Its membership is open to mathematicians, and those with mathematical interests, in all walks of life and the activities of the Society reflect the interests of its broad membership.
The Society is continually alerting itself to the interests and concerns of mathematicians in Australia. As the national professional body of mathematicians, it takes as its responsibility the overall mathematical welfare of the Australian Commonwealth.
