Indian Women and Mathematics (IWM) Workshop HBCSE, Mumbai
Indian Women and Mathematics (IWM) is a collective of mathematicians that has been in existence since 2009. Its objective over the years has been to encourage more women to pursue higher education in mathematics, and to provide an exposure and environment that enables them to take up careers in mathematics. In its pursuit to fulfil the objective, IWM organizes various workshops and conferences that focus on presentation of original research work and discussion about career opportunities in mathematics.
This is a one-and-a-half day workshop that is open to all post-graduate students, PhD scholars, research fellows and college/university faculty members primarily working in various areas of mathematics.
There will be a special focus however on women participants. The aim is to encourage and support large scale participation from women.
