2007 Winter School: Wrap Up
WINTER SCHOOL 2007
The 2007 Winter School (ICE-EM Australian Graduate School in Mathematics) was hosted by the University of Queensland from 2-13 July 2007.
As in previous two years, two courses were offered in each of three streams. The streams were:
- Lie Theory
- Algebra & Combinatorics
The attendees were chosen on academic merit from applications received from local, interstate and international institutions, following extensive, targeted advertising.
The 2007 IAGSM attracted a record number of 65 applications, with a final number of attendees of 59. The breakdown of attendees by stream was: Statistics 24, Lie Theory 21, and Algebra and Combinatorics 14.

What the participants had to say....
"Being exposed to a wide range of new concepts and techniques"
" Having 'time out' from my PhD to learn new techniques that don't necessarily relate directly to my research - being in lectures again. "
"Meeting other maths students from around Australia."
