It All Adds Up: Celebrating Women Across the Mathematical Sciences

In 2015, the London Mathematical Society's annual Women in Maths day will be expanded to four days, as part of the LMS150th Anniversary celebrations, with two days for school students and two days for university mathematicians and mathematical scientists.

#italladdsup2015

School mathematicians

The first day, Tuesday 14th April, is for mathematically inclined girls in Years 9, 10 and 11, while the second day, Wednesday 15th April, is for girls in Years 12 and 13 who are studying A-level Further Mathematics or equivalent.  Each day will feature inspiring talks by female mathematicians and workshops in which the students will tackle stimulating mathematics themselves, and the students will have opportunities to chat to undergraduates and others about mathematical possibilities beyond school level.

University mathematicians

Thursday 16th April - Friday 17th April will be for mathematicians and mathematical scientists at all stages of their careers (undergraduate to professor).  There will be a mix of lectures by invited speakers, panel discussions on a range of topics, contributed talks by early career researchers, and posters.  Participants will have plenty of opportunities to meet other mathematicians, including at the conference dinner on the evening of Thursday 16th April.  For more information, see the programme.

Venue

The event will be held at the Oxford Mathematical Institute in the new Andrew Wiles Building (which itself features mathematics in its design).  Visitors may find the travel information and access guide helpful, and may wish to know that there is a private lactation room available, please ask at Reception.

Booking

Please register using the appropriate form: this one for school mathematicians or this one for university mathematicians.  You might also like to join the mailing list for the event.

LMS 150th Anniversary

You may also be interested in the other LMS 150th Anniversary events, including the launch event Unlocking Worlds on Friday 16th January 2015, which will be suitable for everyone from secondary school students up, and which will be live streamed.
