The International Center for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS-Sofia) and the Institute of Mathematical Sciences of the Americas at the Miami University (IMSA) are organizing the Second International Conference Women in Mathematics in South-Eastern Europe. The conference will be held online on December 9 and 10, 2021.
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. 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.
The organizers intend to make these conferences annual. The main goal of this initiative is to celebrate women in mathematics, disseminate new results and create new long-term collaborations among scientists in South-Eastern Europe.
The organizers of the event expect that through participation women mathematicians will attract the attention of young researchers and researchers from less-favoured countries.
Special guests in this year’s edition of the forum are distinguished mathematicians Barbara Drnovšek from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia and Nadya Morozova from the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHES), France.
The speakers are proposed by an international committee including Mina Teicher (Department of Mathematics and Gonda Brain Research Center, Director of Emmy Noether Institute for Mathematics), Phillip Griffiths (Professor Emeritus, Institute for Advanced Study, USA), Ludmil Katzarkov (Miami University, Co-director of the Institute of Mathematical Sciences of the Americas), Velichka Milousheva (Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Deputy Director).
