18–19 April 2013
The 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 18–19 April and will be held at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge. As usual, sessions will include talks by women mathematicians at different career stages and a poster session. There will also be 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. The event provides an opportunity to meet and talk with women who are active and successful in mathematics.
The event is open to all but would be of particular interest to women mathematicians, especially PhD students and those at an early stage of their career.
Any postgraduates, postdocs or research assistants interested in giving a talk or presenting a poster at the meeting should contact Beatrice Pelloni (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 15 March 2013.
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 2013.
There will be a dinner on the evening of 18 April at Murray Edwards College, funded by the Cambridge mathematics departments and lunch on both days will be funded by the LMS. The event is free for students and speakers and £5 for all others, payable on the day.
Limited funds are available from the London Mathematical Society to help with the travel costs of students attending the event (Please note that all available travel grants for 2013 have now been allocated).
Register by 1st April 2013 here (Late registrations for places may be accepted, subject to availability).
