Because of the relatively small numbers, most WiM organisations span all fields of mathematics. However a number of groups have recently started  for women in specialist fields. Here is a list, together  with a number of organizations specifically aimed at women in Statistics and Operational Research. If you know of others, please let us know.

In 2015, AWM launched an initiative to build networks of female researchers in different areas of mathematics, through Research Collaboration Conferences at math insitutes which focus on building collaboration groups consisting of senior and junior women in a given area. Information about such events can be found here.

Since 2010, the Hausdorff Centre for Mathematics in Bonn has been hosting a series of meetings `Young women in ...'.




CiE-SIG: Women in Computabilty

The Association Computability in Europe (CiE) has been coordinating a Women in Computability program since 2007. It is hosted during the annual CiE conference.

In 2016 this was formalised into a CiE Special Interest Group. It maintains a mailing list and offers various modest grants, a mentoring programme etc.


Women in Number Theory

WIN is an active group whose website is dedicated to the Women in Numbers  community, inspired by the WIN workshops which have occurred regularly since 2008. It aims to be a resource not only to female number theorists, but also to the number theory community as a whole. You are invited to stay in touch via Twitter (@WINnumbertheory) or the email list.

Here are some pictures from the WINE (Women in Numbers Europe) 2013  conference in Luminy, France.

Women in Probability

This organization, started in 2013, is for women active in probability mostly in North America. Its primary purpose is to provide networking and mentoring opportunities for early career women.

In Europe there is no permanent organised group but here is a link to the 2014  Young Women in Probability conference in Bonn.


No permanent organised group but here is a link to the 2013 Women in Topology conference in Banff.





Association of European Operational Research Societies (EURO)

As far as we know there is no committee concerned specifically with women in EURO. However recently EURO has had three female presidents:  Martine Labbé (Université Libre de Bruxelles 2007-2008),  Valerie Belton (University of Strathclyde, 2009-2010), Grazia Speranza (Universita de Brescia, 2011-2012).
