ICMS-新澳开奖Undergraduate Series: Opportunities and directions in modern mathematics

This online series was held twice annually (October/November and February/March) and featured distinguished mathematical speakers from around the world. The talks were 30-50 minutes in length, followed by a leisurely Q&A session about the talk and then an hour for a Roundtable discussion about the future directions in mathematics and what opportunities were available to prospective PhD students.

The goal was to encourage undergraduates in the mathematical sciences to consider engaging in research degrees in mathematics by:

  • providing an overview of possible avenues of research from the point of view of leaders in the field,
  • discussing how undergraduates could take the next steps towards applying for a postgraduate degree,
  • offering insights to the applications and funding processes,
  • hearing from current Masters and/or PhD students,
  • answering questions from undergraduates who were considering applying for a postgraduate degree after they had completed their current studies.
