LMS Women in Maths Days 2018

The LMS Women in Mathematics Day is an annual event organised by the London Mathematical Society. This year it will be replaced by a two day event on Monday 30 April and Tuesday 1 May, to be held at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge. 

This inclusive event is open to all mathematicians independent of gender and stage of career.  Indeed the sessions on Implicit Bias and LMS Benchmarking should be particularly useful for all HoDs and senior mathematicians whilst the session on interview skills will be more suitable for early career researchers. 

Sessions will include talks by women mathematicians at different career stages. There will be a number of practical sessions including a session on Implicit Bias, on the LMS Benchmarking, and on the IoP Project JUNO. In addition there we be a session on interviewing for a first academic position. The event provides an opportunity to meet and talk with women who are active and successful in their mathematical career. 

Speakers include Masoumeh Dashti (Sussex); Nilanjana Datta (Cambridge); Juliet Foster (Cambridge);  Val Gibson (Cambridge); Ruth Gregory (Durham); Rebecca Hoyle (Southampton); Eugenie Hunsicker (Loughborough); Catherine Powell (Manchester); Beth Romano (Cambridge); Colva Roney-Dougal (St Andrews); Claudia Schillings (Mannheim); Anitha Thillaisundaram (Lincoln); Julia Wolf (Bristol); Sarah Zerbes (UCL). 

Lunches and teas and coffees are included both days. Additionally, there will be a conference dinner at Westminster College on Monday 30 April.  

There are limited funds to support travel for PhD students.

Please note that there is no longer any accommodation available for this event. 

There will be a poster session with a prize for the best poster.
