CWM Sponsored Networks and Activities

CWM sponsors a number of events and activities with the aim of encouraging women in mathematics, with priority given to  developing or emerging countries. Our main focus has been aimed at establishing or supporting networks at the continental or regional level. Other events, workshops and projects have also been supported.

The multi-country or multi-regional networks which have been fostered or initiated  with CWM's help  include:

  • AWMA   African Women in Mathematics Association
  • CAWMA Central Asian Women in Mathematics Association  (Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan)
  • IWM Indian Women in Mathematics

Associations in individual countries with a regional impact have also been sponsored.

The deadline for proposition activities taking place in 2022  was December 15 2021. See CWM 2022 call.

In 2022, CWM  call  received 31 applications of which CWM decided to support 10. CWM is supporting the creation of the website of the AOWM (Asian and Oceanian Women in Mathematics) platform and the update of the website of AWMA (African Women in Mathematics Association). Three regional meetings, the third Central Asian Women in Mathematics in Tadjikistan, the second Women in Sage in Africa meeting in Nigeria and the Latin American and Caribbean Workshop on Mathematics and Gender in Oaxaca (Mexico) are also selected. The other five supported proposals are national events to create networks in Gabon, Ghana, and Oman, Indian Women in Mathematics activities and the II Brazilian Meeting for Women in Mathematics.

In 2021, CWM call  received 23 applications of which CWM decided to support 6 projects. CWM is supporting AWMA’s proposal for a special day for women in mathematics at the Pan African Congress of Mathematicians PACOM 2021, a project of several regional women in mathematics associations organising jointly the May 12 initiative to upgrade the reporting mechanism of the website, as well as the second phase of the exhibition project, “МАТЕМАТИКА, through a land of mathematics,” to be premiered at (WM)² in Saint Petersburg and ICM 2022. The project proposed by Indian Women in Mathematics and two thematical mathematical activities in Latin America and Pakistan were also approved.  For a brief report on these activities, see here.

In 2020, CWM call  received 35 applications of which CWM decided to support 8 projects. Six  of them are meetings taking place in Chile, Colombia, India, Senegal, Turkey and Vietnam. The May 12 th initiative website and an exhibition project, МАТЕМАТИКА, through a land of mathematics, for (WM)² in Saint Petersbourg are also supported. For a brief report on these activities, see here.

In 2019, CWM supported events  in Cameroon, Argentina, Domicican Republic, India, Indonesia, South Africa and Tunisia. For a brief report on these activities, see here.

(WM)², the World Meeting for Women in Mathematics July 31, 201, Riocentro convention center, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is a satellite event of the ICM 2018 organised and partially funded by CWM. See meeting-report here and book of abstracts here.

Events sponsored by the 2018 funding call will take place in Austria, El Salvador, Ethiopia, India, Italy (ICTP) Macedonia, Nigeria, Uruguay, Uzbekistan and a booklet project on women role models in Africa is being supported. For a brief report on these activities, see here.
