The International Center for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS-Sofia), the Union of Bulgarian Mathematicians and the Institute of the Mathematical Sciences of the Americas at the University of Miami (IMSA) are organizing the Third International Conference Women in Mathematics in South-Eastern Europe. The conference will be held on December 8 and 9, 2022, 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 intended 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.

In this year’s edition of the forum, special guests are distinguished mathematicians Anna Maria Fino, University of Torino, Italy and Sofia Lambropoulou, School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences, National Technical University of Athens, Greece.

The event is held with the support of the Scientific Program PIKOM, the Simons Foundation and the European Mathematical Society.

The official opening of the conference will take place on December 8, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. in the Meeting Hall of the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics. A special guest at the event is Petar Kenderov, who will deliver a lecture on The Teacher Said: There Is No Such Problem.
