2019

The CWM 2019 call for Networks and Schools received 41 applications of which CWM decided to support 7. In the selection of grants, the priority has been given to projects developing regional networks for Women in Mathematics, in Africa, Latin America, and Asia.

Africa: Cameroon

Regional workshop of the African Women in Mathematics Association, July 13-14, 2019, Limbe, Cameroon.

This workshop will be held jointly with the Cameroon Women in Mathematics Association. The main objectives of this workshop are to bring together African female Mathematicians in Cameroon in order to motivate and provide role models for young Cameroonian girls, girls and women of the region. Furthermore, mentoring networks for young girls and women in mathematical research will be created.

Dominican Republic: Key issues for Sustainable development in the Caribbean

Workshop “Women and Mathematics”: Key issues for Sustainable development in the Caribbean

June 26-28, 2019, Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo, Santo Domingo.

One of the main objectives of this workshop is the creation of a Network of Women in Mathematics in the Dominican Republic and to hold a First Meeting of Dominican Women in Mathematics in conjunction with the First International Symposium of Mathematics in the Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo. The workshop will be focussed on the lack of inclusion of women in the sciences and mathematics in the Dominican Republic. One of the main outcomes will be the official creation of the Network of Women in Mathematics of the Dominican Republic (REMUM-RD) as well as strategies to strengthen the cooperation with similar networks in Latin America and the Caribbean.

India: Women and Mathematics Activities

Indian Women and Mathematics Activities

January-December, 2019, India

Activities to encourage more women in India and >countries of the South Asian Association for Regional Co-operation to pursue higher education in mathematics. Through these activities, women are provide a supportive environment, and they are exposed to new trends both of which are meant to enable them to take up careers in mathematics.

Tunisia: International School on Dynamical Systems and Applications

International School on Dynamical Systems and Applications

September 5-10, 2019, Monastir, Tunisia.

Dedicated to graduate students (both at the Masters and the PhD level), this mathematical school is dedicated to enrich the mathematical training of the attending students. Three mini-courses in dynamical systems will be offered during the 5-day summer school. One of the main goals is to encourage and bring together researchers in the field of dynamical systems, in particular ambitious women in the area.
