25–30 Janaury 2010 The JEDI international research workshops are group-based research collaborations funded by Royal Society-NRF bilateral exchange. The meetings facilitate direct exchange of skills and expertise in cosmology by bringing students, post-docs and staff together in an informal but intense research environment to tackle unsolved cosmology problems. JEDI4 will be hosted at the AIMS Research Centre
Professor Yaozhong Hu (University of Kansas) will give a series of lectures on Rough Path Analysis from 8–11 December 2009.
20 to 24 July 2009, a course organised by Umvoto Africa and presented by Professor Calais of Purdue University was held at AIMS.
13 – 24 July, The High Performance Computing Winter School was held at AIMS. AIMS co-hosted the course with the Centre for High Performance Computing (CHPC).
A short course entitled: “Introduction to the Applications of Mathematics in Biology and Medicine,” was jointly hosted by SACEMA and AIMS. It was attended by 49 South African students. Some course notes are available from a SACEMA.
