4th Annual

Women in Mathematics Symposium

Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012

Learn about the research of other women in Southern California
Present your work in a supportive environment
Network with other Southern California women mathematicians
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.http://www.lmu.edu/resources/campus_maps/Driving_Directions_-_Main_Campus__Westchester.htm
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_7_link_0


Loyola marymount university, Los Angeles.

Driving Directions to LMU can be found here.

Enter campus from Lincoln Blvd (near the big fountain) and then University Hall is the big building immediately on the right.  Parking is available in P2/P3 (which will be free), which is one of the first driveways on the right after entering campus.

After parking, take the elevators up to the ground floor, then take escalators up one flight to the second floor.   The mathematics department is in Suite 2700.  Signs will be posted for how to find the registration tables.  A campus map (somewhat unnecessary) is available here.
