Membership

New members are welcome. Please contact the Secretary.

The subscription is $0.00 for full-time students in their first year of membership and half the ordinary members' rate thereafter. Ordinary members pay NZ$16.00 per annum.

Aims of the New Zealand Branch

To promote Applied and Industrial Mathematics in New Zealand.

Student Travel Support

Travel support is available for student members of the New Zealand Branch of ANZIAM Inc. to attend conferences, meetings and workshops. Applications are generally considered once a year, in November. The Branch also provides travel support specifically to encourage and facilitate student participation at the Maths in Industry NZ study group.

To apply for student travel support, please download the student travel application form and email your completed application to the Secretary, as single PDF document.

Support for Workshops and Meetings

The Branch provides small grants to assist with funding of workshops and meetings that further the aims of the Branch.

To apply, please download the workshop & meeting application form and email your completed application to the Secretary, as single PDF document. Applications should indicate what actions the event organisers will take to foster equity and diversity at the event and within the ANZIAM community.

Caregiver Support Grants

The New Zealand Branch of ANZIAM Inc. acknowledges that caregiver responsibilities can present a significant barrier for students and academics attending conferences. Such barriers can have implications for equity and diversity within the ANZIAM community. The Branch is trialing caregiver support grants for applicants whose participation in the ANZIAM community is limited by caregiving responsibilities. Applications are welcome from any gender and at any career stage. To apply, please download the carer grant-in-aid application form and email your completed application to the Secretary, as single PDF document.

The John Butcher Prize in Numerical Analysis

The John Butcher Prize in Numerical Analysis, administered by the New Zealand branch of ANZIAM, was established to recognise Professor John Butcher's long and productive career in numerical analysis, and in particular in the numerical solution of ordinary differential equations. John is well known in the international community for his contributions in this area.

In 1966, John was appointed Professor of Mathematics and Head of the Mathematics department at the University of Auckland. Apart from a period of ten years as inaugural Professor of the Computer Science department, he has been associated with the Auckland Mathematics department ever since.

In keeping with John's consistent encouragement of students, the prize is for the best student talk at SciCADE, considering both the academic merit of the content and the presentation itself. The next SciCADE will be held in 2017 in Bath, UK (https://sites.google.com/site/scicade2017/).

The previous winners are:

  • 2015 David Hipp (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology)
  • 2013 Yuto Miyatake (Tokyo)
  • 2011 Mohammad Shakourifar (Toronto)
  • 2009 Ludwig Gauckler (Tübingen)
  • 2007 Thomas Schmelzer (Oxford), Anders Hansen (Cambridge)
  • 2005 Tatiana Márquez Lago (University of New Mexico at Albuquerque)
