Harmonic Analysis Conference Celebrating the Mathematical Legacy of Alan McIntosh

12–16 February 2018

In August 2016, the World lost a greatly original and highly influential mathematical analyst, Alan McIntosh. For almost fifty years, Alan McIntosh had been a symbol of the strength of Australian mathematics, and a key figure in the fields of harmonic analysis and operator theory worldwide. The 2018 Special Year in Analysis at the MSI will start with a conference honouring Alan’s memory, and mathematical legacy.

It will be a milestone event, bringing together Alan’s former students and collaborators, as well as some of the very best international experts in his field.

    Financial support

    This event is sponsored by the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI). AMSI allocates a travel allowance annually to each of its member universities (for list of members, see http://amsi.org.au/membership/members/). Students or early career researchers from AMSI member universities without access to a suitable research grant or other source of funding may apply to the Head of Mathematical Sciences for subsidy of travel and accommodation out of the departmental travel allowance.

    Cafés and Dining

    Below are some café, restaurant and bar options in the Canberra city and surrounding areas.

    Transportation

    There are many ways to get around Canberra. Below is some useful information about Bus & Taxi transport around the ANU, the Airport and surrounding areas.

    Taxi

    If you are catching a taxi to the ANU Mathematical Sciences Institute, ask to be taken to Kingsley Street, Drill Hall Gallery. From here, it is only a short walk to the Mathematical Sciences Building (John Dedman, Building 27). A Taxi will generally cost around $40 and will take roughly 15 minutes. Pricing and time may vary depending on traffic.

    Taxi bookings can be made through Canberra Elite Taxis - 13 22 27.

    Airport Shuttle

    Airport express buses to the city are cheaper but they will not take you directly to your destination. The buses stop at 3 locations marked in the map below. The most convenient stop for getting yourself to the ANU is West Row, Civic.

    Shuttle prices:

    • $12 one way
    • $20 return

    For more information about the airport shuttle.

    Action Buses

    Canberra buses are a cheap and easy way of getting around town once you're here.
