To celebrate the International Day of Mathematics 2023 (aka “Pi Day”) on 14 March, SMRI organised three public events for all ages and levels of mathematics.
UTS and UNSW also hosted events to celebrate Pi Day.
The official International Congress of Mathematics 2022 was held virtually. In Sydney, SMRI recreated some of the usual spirit of the ICM. Our local event featured talks by the Australia-based invited speakers, presentations on the work of the Fields medallists, and interactive streaming of plenary and special session talks selected by the participants.
Just one day after Pi Day (the International Day of Mathematics, 14 March) Sydney Ideas and SMRI joined forces to present Maths, AI and intuition, a public talk featuring SMRI Director Professor Geordie Williamson, with event MC Adam Spencer.
The University of Sydney’s School of Mathematics & Statistics hosted an in-person and online event to celebrate Women in Mathematics Day on 12 May 2021, sponsored by SMRI and the University of Sydney.
The event began with a video screening of ‘Secrets of the Surface’, featuring Fields Medallist Maryam Mirzakhani.
