24 – 26 Sep 2017: WIMSIG Conference

Celebration of Women in Mathematics
Call for Expressions of Interest

For 2017, WIMSIG is organising a Celebration of Women in Mathematics research conference, showcasing the research of women in the mathematical sciences. This will be the first such conference in Australia.

“Mathematics” will be broadly interpreted to mean the mathematical sciences, including pure mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematical statistics, applied statistics, biostatistics, bioinformatics, mathematical biology, mathematics in industry, etc.

WIMSIG believes this conference will play a really important role in advancing gender equity in Australian mathematics. Both female researchers and senior leaders (of any gender) in our discipline will find it eye-opening and inspiring to be in a majority-female research environment, even for a few days; not to mention the development of potential research collaborations, networking, exposure to potential candidates for hiring, etc.

Information about registration and submission of abstracts will be available soon.

When: 24 – 26 September 2017
Where: University of South Australia, Adelaide
