For the first time since 2019, after two years of being held virtually, the School of Mathematics and Statistics annual Postgraduate Conference was hosted on campus on Wednesday 10 August. 

Director of Postgraduate Research Studies A/Prof Ian Doust welcomed attendees to Colombo Theatres to hear a wide range of talks from our research student cohort. 

45 presentations were delivered across the schedule, with a handful presented via Zoom. The event included a new "Hello Session", which gave our newest PhD students the opportunity to introduce themselves and the type of research they will be working on. 

The program also included three plenary sessions by Fiona Kim, Chris Bladwell and Yudhi Bunjamin. 

Prizes for best talks were awarded to Fiona Kim (Statistics), Eva-Maria Hekkelman (Pure Maths), and Peter Wu (Applied Maths). Brock Sherlock won the Contribution Prize for his efforts in helping to organise the conference. 

Following the full day's program of presentations, attendees enjoyed an after-party in the Colombo foyer.

Thank you to the 2022 PG Conference Committee for running such a successful event: Bill Deng, Ian Doust, Susannah Waters, Peter Wu, Thomas Xuan, and Beatta Zarrabi.
