The 2020 New Zealand Mathematical Society Colloquium will be hosted by the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the Auckland University of Technology over the period of 1-2 December 2020.
This year the Colloquium will use a virtual format.
Since COVID-19 has changed our academic delivery dramatically, we have decided that this year’s NZMS colloquium will run in a theme-based format on the following two themes:
- COVID modelling, and
- Online teaching and learning in the mathematical sciences
Each theme will have 3 or 4 speakers (each speaker will present a talk for 10-15 minutes), followed by panel discussions.
In addition to the NZMS lectures, this year’s colloquium will also include the Butcher–Kalman lecture, organized special sessions and the society’s other activities.
