AustMS WIMSIG Celebration of Women in Mathematical Sciences Conference: Call for Expressions of Interest

    For 2017, WIMSIG is organising a Celebration of Women in Mathematical Sciences 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 but not restricted to pure mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematical statistics, applied statistics, biostatistics, bioinformatics, mathematical biology and mathematics in industry. WIMSIG believes this conference will play an 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. There will be opportunities for the development of potential research collaborations, networking, professional development, and exposure to potential candidates for hiring. VENUE AND KEY DATES This Conference will be held at the University of South Australia, Adelaide, 24-26 September 2017. The afternoon of Sunday 24 September is reserved for a professional development workshop and a welcome reception. Research talks and other Conference activities will run on Monday 25 September and Tuesday 26 September. There will be a Conference dinner on the evening of Monday 25 September. The Conference website will be updated from time to time - www.austms.org.au/WIMSIG-conference-2017.
