1st Meeting for women mathematicians in Portugal (WM2)

22/07/2019 a 24/07/2019 New University of Lisbon

The 1st Meeting for women mathematicians in Portugal (WM2) will take place at Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia, Universidade Nova de Lisboa  from 22th - 24th July 2019. 

The conference aims to cover, as broadly as possible, the diversity of interests of portuguese women mathematicians. To this purpose the talks will explain the motivation of the problems discussed and focus on the main ideas. 

The WM2 meeting has the support of the European Women in Mathematics (EWM) and also of the Portuguese Mathematical Society (SPM).

In Portugal, as in many other countries, the top positions in the universities, and also the invited speakers for national and international conferences happen to include very few women. Also, the number of female undergraduate students proceeding to a PhD in Mathematics needs still to grow. The conference will be an opportunity to share different experiences, and will hopefully help to develop a more supportive community that can inspire future women mathematicians.

In the WM2 meeting, beyond the Plenary Talks, we will have Contributed Talks, and also a Panel discussion on the gender gap situation in Mathematics.

Participation and/or presentation of talks is not restricted to women - all are welcome!
