The 2024 ANZAMP Meeting


The Australian and New Zealand Association of Mathematical Physics (ANZAMP) is a Division of the Australian Mathematical Society (AustMS).

The Eleventh Annual Meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Mathematical Physics will be jointly hosted by the University of Sydney and the University of New South Wales. The meeting will be held at the Hotel Mountain Heritage (Katoomba, NSW) from Wednesday the 7th to Friday the 9th of February, 2024. There will be an earlier finish on the Friday afternoon to allow better planning for delegates to catch return flights home. A welcome reception will be held on the evening of Tuesday the 6th of February, 2024.

Code of Conduct

The ANZAMP Meeting provides a welcoming environment to discuss mathematical physics, where all people are treated with respect and diversity is celebrated.

ANZAMP does not tolerate any form of unacceptable behaviour by or towards conference participants.  This includes, but is not limited to, disrespectful, disruptive, violent, abusive, harassing or intimidating conduct, and exclusionary comments or jokes focusing on race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, age, disability or physical appearance.  A condition of registration is agreeing to the ANZAMP Code of Conduct.

Rodney Baxter Prize

Every three years, the Rodney Baxter Prize for Mathematical Physics will be awarded. This is awarded for an outstanding and internationally significant contribution to the area of Mathematical Physics primarily carried out in Australia or New Zealand. Currently, it is valued at $5,000 AUD. More information, including a link to the eligibility criteria, may be found here.  The prize will next be awarded in 2026.

A. J. Guttmann Prize

Students and postdocs within one year of PhD conferral may be eligible to compete for the A. J. Guttmann Prize.  This is awarded at each ANZAMP annual meeting for the best student presentation.  Currently, it is valued at $500 AUD.  More information, including eligibility criteria and a list of past winners, may be found here.
