“It was great getting to meet so many like‐minded and talented mathematics students. The guest speakers were also really enlightening and the careers talk especially was very useful.”

AMSIConnect 2021

9–11 February | Virtual Conference

AMSIConnect is an exclusive national conference for AMSI Vacation Research Scholars near the completion of their projects. The three-day virtual conference gives VRS students the opportunity to present their summer research findings to their peers and academic supervisors.

Academic supervisors are invited to join their AMSI Vacation Research Scholars for AMSIConnect.

Please note: participation at AMSIConnect for the full duration of the event is compulsory and a condition of accepting an AMSI Vacation Research Scholarship.

Student presentations

Each VRS student will be allocated 20 minutes in the conference program and should prepare a 15-minute presentation of their research. The remaining five minutes are for the chair to introduce the speaker, a short question-and-answer session and presentation changeover time. This is a highly valuable exercise, which provides a platform to practise presenting within a professional conference capacity.

If you’re unsure about what content is appropriate for your presentation, speak to your academic supervisor about how to structure and convey your research in a professional and engaging capacity.

A prize is awarded each year to the best presenter/s as voted by the audience.

Opportunities to connect

AMSIConnect provides students with an opportunity to not only present their work, but to network, engage in debate and conversation, and delve deeper into the research performed over the summer.

Outside of academic pursuits, the AMSIConnect 2021 program will include ice breakers and social events.
