Proceedings of the 14th Engineering Mathematics and Applications Conference
UNSW Canberra, Australia
26th Nov–29th Nov 2019
This Special Section of the ANZIAM Journal (Electronic Supplement) contains the refereed papers from the 14th Engineering Mathematics and Applications Conference (EMAC2019), which was held at the UNSW Canberra, Australia from 26th November to 29th November 2019. EMAC is held under the auspices of the Engineering Mathematics Group (EMG), which is a special interest group of the Australian and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics division of the Australian Mathematics Society. This conference provides a forum for researchers interested in the development and use of mathematical methods in engineering and applied mathematics, and aims to foster interactions between mathematicians and engineers, from both academia and industry. A further theme of the conference is the mathematical education of applied mathematicians and engineers. The event attracted participants from around the globe, including: New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, Japan and Australia.
The invited speakers at the 2019 meeting crossed the spectrum of specialities in engineering, mathematics, education and industry. They were: Alexander Kalloniatis (Defence Science and Technology Group), Robert K. Niven (UNSW Canberra), Katherine Seaton (La Trobe University) and Antoinette Tordesillas (University of Melbourne).
All of the articles included in the EMAC 2019 Proceedings have been critically peer reviewed to the usual standards of the ANZIAM Journal.
