Women in Geometry and Topology 2019

Women in Geometry and Topology 2019 will be held at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, Bellaterra (Barcelona), Spain, from September 25-27, 2019

The Workshop will feature several plenary talks by top female mathematicians and some contributed talks (contributed by speakers of any gender identity).

The topics of the workshop will focus in Geometry and Topology in the broad sense (going through Commutative Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Symplectic Geometry, Differential Geometry, Algebraic Toplogy) and its applications to several topics suchs as Celestial Mechanics, Control Theory, Mathematical Physics, Phylogenetics and Robotics.

​Rita Pardini ​(Università di Pisa)
​Mª Eugenia Rosado María ( ​Universidad Politécnica de Madrid)
Ulrike Tillmann​ ​(University of Oxford)
​Carme Torras Genís (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas)

There will be two public lectures by Marta Macho (Scientific Culture Chair UPV/EHU, RSME Medal 2015, Emakunde Equality Prize 2016) and Carme Torras (Narcís Monturiol Medal 2000) addressed to the general public (you don’t need to be a mathematician to follow them you just need to be curious!). A panel (open to the public) will also be organized in order to discuss the situation of women in mathematics, the gender gap and strategies for breaking the glass-ceiling inside and outside academia. Other complementary activities will be announced in due time.

The publication of “extended abstracts” from the congress is expected in the Springer-Birkhäuser Research Perspectives CRM Barcelona collection, within the Trends in Mathematics series.

We have available slots for contributed talks from participants.

Application deadline for contributed talks: June 30th, 2019 (Decisions will be communicated by July12th, 2019).
