2010 ACHMS meeting


The Australian Council of Heads of Mathematical Sciences (ACHMS) is administered through the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI) as a service to the broader mathematical community.

The ACHMS had its origins in the annual Heads of mathematical sciences departments meeting. The membership was expanded to provide a broader base for input to policy and discussion on matters of concern to the mathematics and statistics community.

The ACHMS comprises representatives from:

  • each university
  • presidents of professional societies concerned with mathematics and statistics
  • AMSI
  • Australian Bureau of Statistics
  • and a number of individuals who can contribute through their association with other bodies, for example The National Committee for Mathematical Sciences.

Meetings are held annually each February.
