Distinguished Lecturer Series

The Distinguished Lecturer Series is hosted by the Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics at the University of South Australia's Mawson Lakes Campus. The aim of the series is to disseminate some of the most exciting developments in Mathematical Sciences among researchers and students in South Australia. The speakers are chosen because of the outstanding contributions to their areas of specialisation. The series was launched in December, 2006 with a lecture by Professor Alain Bensoussan.
