3rd Annual

Women in Mathematics Symposium

Saturday, Nov. 20, 2010

  1. Learn about the research of other women in Southern California

  2. Present your work in a supportive environment

  3. Network with other Southern California women mathematicians

  4. Explore issues surrounding being a woman in mathematics

Many people may want to give a talk on results they have already obtained, but expository talks describing a problem of interest are also welcome.  In particular, we encourage graduate students to give a talk even if they don’t yet have their own results.  Talks should be 20 minutes in length.

The EDGE Southern California mentoring network in collaboration with the Women in Math group at USC is organizing a one-day symposium for Women in Mathematics in Southern California.  Our vision for the symposium is two-fold.
The symposium will provide an opportunity for women in mathematics in the southern California area to get to know each other on a personal as well as a professional level.  Our aim is to create a network of women mathematicians in the Southern California area in order to nurture collaborations and provide a framework for mentoring.
The symposium will provide an opportunity for graduate students to develop professionally by giving a mathematical talk in a supportive, non-threatening environment.http://www.edgeforwomen.org/shapeimage_6_link_0
