Put this meeting on your schedule to discuss the role of women in mathematics.
The second World Meeting for Women in Mathematics, (WM)2, will be held on July 5th, 2022, at the Expoforum International Convention & Exhibition Centre in Saint Petersburg, as a special satellite event of the ICM 2022. The whole mathematical community is invited to join, for four scientific lectures, group discussions about the gender gap in mathematics and networking.
It is not finalized yet, it will include at least:
- four invited talks by distinguished female mathematicians working in or from Russia and nearby countries;
- a poster session;
- group discussions;
- a round table about gender gap in mathematics in various countries, in particular Russia and Eastern Europe. The panelists will include both mathematicians and specialists from the social sciences working on this theme.
The exhibition МАТЕМАТИКА, through a land of mathematics highlights ten interviews with women in mathematics across Russia. The heroines of МАТЕМАТИКА are researchers, administrators, teachers, some of them involved in the mathematical olympiad movement.
The goal of this project is to sketch, through such a series of personal stories, a portrait of modern Russian mathematics. This project is prepared especially for the (WM)2, and the exhibition will be inaugurated at the meeting. The compagnon book containing full versions of the interviews as well as photographic impressions of Russian cities, will also be presented.
