Welcome Reception and Public Lecture
On Tuesday, December 8 the welcome reception will be from 5:30pm-6pm at Newcastle City Hall. Drinks and nibbles will be provided, and registration for the ANZAMP meeting will be open.
Immediately following the welcome reception, there will be a joint public lecture at the same venue from 6pm-7pm, by Head Mathematics Teacher at the Hunter School of the Performing Arts, Cassandra Portelli, and Professor of Mathematics at the University of Sydney, Nalini Joshi: Researchers and teachers talking: journeys through mathematics and life. The public lecture is part of the Inspiring mathematics and science in teacher education (IMSITE) project, and is a joint effort between IMSITE and ANZAMP. Further details here.
Registration will remain open until 7:30pm (but unfortunately no more drinks and nibbles will be supplied). Newcastle City Hall is conveniently located close to many restaurants, including the popular Darby street which is known as one of Newcastle's premier “eat streets”.

A. J. Guttmann Prize
This prize ($500) is awarded for the most outstanding talk by a student or recent graduate (PhD completed in the calendar year of the meeting) presented at each ANZAMP meeting. The prize is named in honour of Professor Anthony J. Guttmann, who has been, and continues to be, a leading figure in the mathematical physics community in Australia. Among many distinctions, Tony Guttmann has a distinguished research record in statistical mechanics, was President of the Australian Mathematical Society and was one of the leading figures in the establishment of the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute. Tony is renowned for the guidance and wisdom he offers to his colleagues and students, and he is a tireless advocate of programs for talented students in mathematical physics, and mathematics more generally.

|2013||Inna Lukyanenko||Properties of the Bethe Ansatz equations for Richardson-Gaudin models|
