Australian Data Science Network (ADSN)

The aim of the Australian Data Science Network (ADSN) is to connect the concentrations of expertise in data science across Australia, in order to improve communication, encourage collaboration, expand opportunities, and promote our individual and collective capabilities. The ambition is clearly and deliberately to enhance and expand opportunities and outcomes for all members of the ADSN.


For more than seven years, the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical & Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS) created world-class research at the frontiers of the mathematical sciences dealing with probability and randomness, translating this research into new insights that benefited society. ACEMS also created this podcast. The Centre concluded at the end of 2021, but is still involved in supporting The Random Sample.


Headquartered in Melbourne Connect, the ARC Training Centre in Optimisation Technologies, Integrated Methodologies, and Applications (OPTIMA) brings together the various interdisciplinary fields with advanced optimisation technologies: mathematics, statistics, computer science, engineering, and economics. OPTIMA’s industry partner cohort spans the energy resources, advanced manufacturing and critical infrastructure sectors.

Australian Mathematical Society (AustMS)

The Australian Mathematical Society (AustMS) promotes the mathematical sciences and their applications in Australia. AustMS represents mathematics, and the interests of mathematics-related professions, to the Australian community and government.
