ANZIAM provides:

Conferences and Meetings

Our annual Applied Mathematics Conference is the place to meet and exchange information. The conference includes contributed papers, invited presentations, policy discussions, and excursions. ANZIAM members pay reduced registration fees.

The annual Conference is usually held in early February.

Our regional branches in ACT, NSW, New Zealand, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria organize occasional special meetings, as well as regular meetings each year.

Specialist Interest Groups

ANZIAM supports several Specialist Interest Groups:

  • The Computational Mathematics Group holds the Computational Techniques and Applications Conference (CTAC) biennially. The Proceedings of the CTAC Conferences are published.
  • The Engineerings Mathematics Group sponsors occasional one day meetings and a biennial conference, the proceedings of which are published.
  • Mathsport is concerned with applications of mathematics and computers in sport. It also holds biennial meetings.
  • The Mathematics in Industry Study Group holds the Mathematics in Industry Study Group Meeting, an annual one week get-together of applied and industrial mathematicians barnstorming on real industrial problems.

A Voice for the Profession

ANZIAM represents the interest of applied mathematicians. As a division of the Australian Mathematical Society, ANZIAM has a seat on the Australian Mathematical Sciences Council. This Council is also represented on FASTS (the Federation of Australian Scientific and Technological Societies) which is the main lobby group for scientists in Australia.


The ANZIAM Journal is a quarterly journal which published papers in applied and industrial mathematics, related mathematical sciences, and on applications of mathematics. More than 400 university libraries worldwide subscribe to the ANZIAM Journal.

The Gazette is published five times a year by the Australian Mathematical Society and carries news items, general methematical articles and professional advertisements. ANZIAM members receive the Gazette free.

Special Benefits for Students

  • Awards. ANZIAM sponsors the prestigious T.M. Cherry prize for the best student presentation at the Applied Mathematics Conference.
  • Networking. Postgraduate students considering a career in applied mathematics will benefit from advice and information available through ANZIAM.
  • Discounts. Reduced membership fees apply for students.

The goals of ANZIAM are to

  • Advance the application of mathematics to science, industry and business.
  • Promote mathematical research relevent to applications of mathematics.
  • Provide for the exchange of ideas and information between applied mathematicians and users of mathematics in science, engineering and industry.
  • Encourage the education and training of industrial and applied mathematicians.
