This one day London Mathematics Society Women in Maths Day is being held at Warwick University on Tuesday 27th June, 2017.
The day provides the chance to meet and network with women who are active and successful in mathematics, and features research talks from a wide range of mathematical subject areas as well as a panel discussion. A poster session will be held over lunch and there will be a prize for the best Women in Mathematics Day poster. Posters developed for other conferences are very welcome, and poster boards will support up to A1 size posters. In addition, each poster presenter will have the opportunity to give a one slide 'taster' to advertise their poster to the participants.
The event is open to all and may be of particular interest to women mathematicians, particularly those at an early stage of their career.
Registration for the event is free, and limited travel funding is available to support undergraduates, postgraduates and postdocs to attend. We encourage attendees to request additional travel funding from their departments where appropriate. We are keen to enable attendance from further afield in the UK, and will make every effort to assist with this.
Childcare can be provided - click here for details.
