Call for Proposals: Research Collaboration Conferences for Women


Supported by a National Science Foundation ADVANCE grant, the AWM is working to establish and support research networks for women in all areas of mathematics research.  As part of the grant, the AWM will provide mentorship and support to new networks wishing to organize a research collaboration conference for women (RCCW), including: help finding a conference venue, help developing and submitting a conference proposal, and help soliciting travel funding for participants.


Mathematicians interested in organizing the first conference of a new RCCW are invited to submit a proposal to the AWM describing the conference topic, potential co-organizers and project leaders, and potential participants.  Proposals should be no more than one page (PDF files only, please), and should be sent to  “Deadline for submission: Twice per year, on January 1 and July 1.”
