Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart

Sunday 1 February - Thursday 5 February

ANZIAM 2004 is a conference in the annual series of Applied Mathematics meetings, held by the ANZIAM (Australian and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics) division of the Australian Mathematical Society.

The aim of the Conference is to bring together Applied Mathematicians from a broad variety of backgrounds.  The Conference features invited plenary talks given by distinguished Applied Mathematicians from Australia and Overseas, in addition to contributed talks and possibly a poster session.

Contributed talks and posters by research students are very welcome, and continue to be a major component of annual ANZIAM conferences.  There is a prize awarded for the best student talk, and is named in honour of the distinguished Australian mathematician Sir T.M. Cherry.

The final list of plenary speakers for ANZIAM 2004 is as follows:

It is a feature of these conferences that they are held away from large population centres, in areas of recreational interest.  ANZIAM 2004 will be held in Australia's unique island state of Tasmania, in the lovely Southern city of Hobart, which is a city of about 200,000 people.  The Hotel Grand Chancellor is located next to Constitution Dock in the heart of Hobart, which is the finishing point for the famous annual Sydney to Hobart yacht race.  There are excellent restaurants within a short walk of the hotel, and sea-food is a speciality of the region.

There will be a welcoming barbeque, and a free afternoon is planned.  There are wineries, nature walks and the University's radio telescope all within half an hour's drive of the conference venue, so the region is ideally suited for accompanying partners and families.

Expressions of interest circulars and registration circulars are being mailed out to members of the Australian Mathematical Society during 2003, and the Conference Homepage is available at the address Delegates are encouraged to register online using this facility.

Some information about Tasmania is available from Tourism Tasmania, at the web address au/
Qantas and Virgin Blue airlines operate from mainland Australia into Hobart.  If you wish to bring your car from the mainland, and take the opportunity to see Tasmania before or after the conference, you may wish to book a passage on the new "Spirit of Tasmania" ferries.  The web address is:

We look forward to welcoming you to Hobart.
