AMSI Winter School 2017 is pleased to partner with the following sponsors, and would like to acknowledge each of them for their support:
Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI)
AMSI is the collaborative enterprise of Australia’s mathematical sciences. It exists to give independence to our disciplines and provide infrastructure so that we can take initiatives on the national and international stage.
Australian Government – Department of Education & Training
The Department of Education and Training is responsible for national policies and programmes that help Australians access quality and affordable early child care and childhood education, school education, higher education, vocational education and training, international education and research.
Queensland University of Technology (QUT)
Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is a major Australian university with a global outlook and a real-world focus. QUT is a collaborative institution that seeks to equip students and graduates with the skills they’ll need in an increasingly disrupted and challenged world.
BHP Billiton Foundation
BHP Billiton Foundation is an independent charitable entity set up to further BHP Billiton’s voluntary investment in community. The charity is designed to provide public benefit by enabling people living in regions where BHP Billiton has an interest, to improve their quality of life through improvements in health, education and governance.
The ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS)
The ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS) brings together nineteen of Australia¹s leading researchers in mathematics, statistics and machine learning, together with their colleagues, postdoctoral fellows and PhD students. ACEMS researchers engage in research programs that combine new methods for the analysis of data with theoretical, methodological and computational foundations provided by advanced mathematical and statistical modelling. New insights developed by the Centre will have impact for end users working in the collaborative domains of healthy people, sustainable environments and prosperous societies.
The Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF)
The Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF) provides the high-performance services, infrastructure and support required to achieve excellence in computation and data-driven collaborative research and its application in industry. QCIF operates with its members and partners delivering services to research throughout Queensland and increasingly via Commonwealth programs to the nation.
Silicon Graphics International Corp. (SGI)
As the trusted leader in high performance computing, Silicon Graphics International Corp. (SGI) helps organisations find answers to the world’s biggest challenges. SGI’s commitment to innovation is unwavering and focused on delivering market leading solutions in Technical Computing, Big Data Analytics, and Petascale Storage.

The Simulation Group
Since 1999, our mission has been to help you make sense of your data. We want to make your data talk in a language you understand. Not a language of vague insights and unclear directions, but the language of predictive analytics. The Simulation Group was founded with that mission in mind and remains true to that objective.
The Australian Signals Directorate
The Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) produces foreign signals intelligence in support of Australian military and strategic decision-making. Data Science and Engineering is ensuring ASD is able to meet these challenges in an increasingly networked world through advanced data engineering and analytics.
The Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) is a not-for-profit, coordinating programs to address and protect the health of Australia’s mathematical sciences pipeline. The annual Winter School is hosted in Queensland and runs for two-weeks, aiming to develop the next generation of quantitative scientists who can thrive in tomorrow’s information age. Support from sponsors is critical to foster the collaboration between the mathematics, statistics and data science disciplines.
With this event, sponsors will have the opportunity to reach a targeted audience, gain strategic benefits, generate brand exposure, and will have unprecedented access to Australia’s mathematical graduate student and early career research community. Businesses will have the opportunity to connect with young graduates, early career researchers, and like-minded individuals across the event, and will receive a number of perks in acknowledgement of their support.
