Kia Ora and Welcome


Te Ara Mokoroa:  The Long Abiding Path of Knowledge

Kia Ora and welcome to Volcanic Delta '11, the eighth Delta conference on the teaching and learning of undergraduate mathematics and statistics. The 2011 conference will be held at the Millennium Hotel, on the edge of Lake Rotorua , amongst the boiling mud-pools and geysers in the internationally acclaimed geothermal wonderland of Rotorua, New Zealand. Delta '11 builds on the knowledge and collegial networks established in previous Delta conferences, a series of biennial southern hemisphere symposia that began in Brisbane in 1997. Delta attracts a wide international audience of research mathematicians and educators committed to improving undergraduate mathematics and statistics education.

Subsequent conferences have been held in:

Laguna Quays, Australia 1999
Kruger National Park, South Africa 2001
Queenstown, New Zealand 2003
Fraser Island, Australia 2005
El Calafate, Argentina 2007
Gordon's Bay, South Africa 2009

The 2011 conference will commence with a welcome reception and opening address on Sunday 27 November, and finish 5 days later with a plenary address before closing around lunchtime on Friday 2nd December.
Wednesday 30 November is reserved for excursions, which will explore the scenic thermal wonders of Rotorua.

Delta '11 is jointly organised by the Departments of Mathematics, Engineering Science and Statistics at The University of Auckland; and the International Delta Steering Committee.
