The Women in Mathematics Day is an annual event organised by the London Mathematical Society and will take place on 15th April 2010 at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge. Sessions at the day will include talks and posters by women mathematicians in a variety of appointments and at different career stages.
This year we have received funding from the UK Resource Centre for Women in SET to follow the Women in Mathematics Day with an additional day containing a number of practical sessions to help women get the most out of their careers in mathematics. Sessions will include advice on how to get funding for your first postdoc and beyond and discussion groups on topics such as combining family and career, working overseas and making the next step in your career. There will also be the opportunity to meet leading women mathematicians from a number of countries across Europe.
The event is open to all but would be of particular interest to PhD students and those at an early stage in their career. The first day would also be of interest to final-year undergraduates.
To encourage high quality posters, a £50 book token will be awarded for the poster that is judged to be the WiM Day Best Poster 2010.
The meeting will be held at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge and bed & breakfast accommodation can be booked at Robinson College for a charge of £64 per night. There will be a dinner at Newnham College on Thursday evening - the cost of all meals is covered by the grant from the UKRC.
