The 2017 Colloquium will be hosted by the University of Auckland (City campus) from Tuesday 5 December to Thursday 7 December, with a welcome on the Monday evening.

The annual Colloquium brings together the mathematical community of New Zealand while welcoming overseas visitors to join us.

Time will be dedicated to the discussion of all aspects of pure and applied mathematics and statistics. Talks will be given by internationally recognized leaders in the field and also by emerging researchers and postgraduate students.

NZMS Colloquium Code of Conduct

Our conference is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks, workshops, parties, Twitter and other online media.

A participant who experiences harassment or hostile behaviour may contact the following representatives:

These representatives will be available in person and via e-mail. Be assured that if you approach them, your concerns will be kept in strict confidence and they will consult with you on any actions taken. In case of a formal complaint, they will speak to all parties involved to try to resolve the issue – without presupposition of guilt. More details can be found here.
