The 2019 Colloquium will be hosted by Massey University at Palmerston North, Tuesday December 3 to Thursday December 5.

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 or religion (or lack thereof). We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form.

In case of a formal complaint they will speak to all parties involved to try to resolve the issue without presupposition of guilt.

Plenary speakers

Teacher day

A regular feature of the NZMS Colloquium is a Teacher Day, with a programme of talks, workshops and presentations on mathematics education issues. Also the Mathematics and Statistics groups at Massey University Manawatu, with the support of the Manawatu Mathematics Teacher Association, hold an annual Mathematics and Statistics Forum aimed at secondary and tertiary teachers and researchers. This year the Colloquium’s Teacher Day, planned for Wednesday, December 4, will merge these two events.

The day will include keynote speakers and sessions of interest to mathematicians, statisticians, mathematics and statistics teachers, and mathematics education researchers.

The Teacher Day is organised by Cami Sawyer.
