Activities for women in mathematics

The first workshop of women mathematicians was held during May 02-04, 2014, in Gebze, Kocaeli, at the Gebze Institute of Technology. The main themes of the workshop were Algebra, Algebraic Geometry, Graph Theory and Numerical Analysis. There were three talks in each area; one general talk given by a senior women mathematician, following two talks given by young women mathematicians. There were also poster presentations, mostly done by graduate students. From undergraduate to senior mathematicians, mostly women but also some men, there were nearly 150 participants. We did not get any financial support except that the host university arranged accommodation and lunches at reasonable prices.

The second one is taking place from Friday, May 1, 2015 to Tuesday, May 5, 2015 in Cumhuriyet University Merkez/Sivas, and will be organized with the EWM moral support.
