The Charles Pearce Memorial Symposium
University of Adelaide, 17th June 2013
The School of Mathematical Sciences at The University of Adelaide is hosting a Symposium to honour the life and work of the Elder Professor of Mathematics, Professor Charles Edward Miller Pearce. Tragically, Charles died in New Zealand on the 8th June 2012. Charles was internationally known for his work on probabilistic and statistical modelling and analysis and he published over 300 research articles. He also successfully supervised 30 PhD students.
The Charles Pearce Memorial Symposium will be held at the University of Adelaide on the 17th June 2013. The program will consist mainly of technical talks, but there will also be the opportunity for brief personal comments/recollections to be shared about Charles.
A webpage has be established at
where registration and the details of the Charles Pearce Memorial Symposium are available. Or alternatively email cpearce.symposium @dsto.defence.gov.au and we will then make sure that you receive all updates by email. Registration for the symposium will be free, and we intend to organise a dinner in the evening (which will be at your own cost).
