The International Center for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS-Sofia and the Institute of the Mathematical Sciences of the Americas at the University of Miami (IMSA) are organizing the Fourth International Conference “Women in Mathematics in South-Eastern Europe”. The conference will be held on December 18 to 20, 2023 and will be hosted by the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia.

The initiative Women in Mathematics of South-Eastern Europe, aiming at promoting the role of female mathematicians, started in Dec 2020, when the inaugural conference took place. Even then, the organizers stated their intention to turn the scientific forum into a prestigious annual event. A special distinguished guest of the inaugural conference was Prof. Mina Teicher from the Department of Mathematics and Gonda Brain Research Center, Bar-Ilan University, Israel, Director of Emmy Noether Institute for Mathematics.

One of the main goals of the conference organizers is to create new long-term collaborations between mathematicians in South-Eastern Europe. They expect that through participation women mathematicians will attract the attention of young researchers and researchers from less-favoured countries.

The event is held with the support of the Bulgarian Research Program Enhancing the Research Capacity in Mathematical Sciences (PIKOM) and Simons Foundation.

The official opening of the conference will take place on December 18, 2023 at 1:30 p.m. in the Hall 403 of the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics.
