    Universidad de La Frontera, Temuco-Chile

    Prof Rubi Rodriguez is a well known female Chilean mathematician. She did her PhD under Lipman Bers in Columbia Universiy, New York in 1981. She has had a very successful career with several Master and PhD students, most of them currently successful (female) mathematicians.


    Banff International Research Station

    A weekend designed to serve as a career starter retreat for young female mathematicians.

    August 12, 2014 (8am to 5pm) at Ewha Womans University, Seoul; August 14, 2014 (1pm to 9pm) at Coex Convention Center, Seoul.

    The International Congress of Women Mathematicians 2014 (ICWM 2014) is an associated meeting of the 27th International Congress of Mathematicians 2014 (ICM 2014) was held from August 13-21, 2014 in Seoul, Korea. ICWM 2014 brought together women mathematicians and their supporters from around the world. It showcased the mathematical contributions of women mathematicians, and provide opportunity for them, especially those from developing countries, to meet and exchange experience and ideas.

    The ICWM 2014 was sponsored and organized by the Korean Women in Mathematical Sciences (KWMS) with close assistance and guidance from the International Mathematical Union (IMU). In order to support the participation of women mathematicians from around the world, especially from developing countries, the KWMS also provided 100 travel grants (Together Project) to selected attendees.

    The meeting was opened by the EWM convenor Marie-Francoise Roy and by Dr. Michael Meier, Chief Administrator of HCM Bonn. The EMS lecturer Tamar Ziegler (Hebrew University, Israel) gave a series of lectures on Dynamics and prime solutions to linear equations. Besides many mathematical lectures, the program included a discussion: In what way do women benefit from “excellence schemes” now widly spread in various European countries?  An session “Present your neighbor” was both instructive and relaxing, as one could find out about the scientific careers, research interests, families and hobbies of the participants.
