International Day for Women and Girls in Science

The UN has declared February 11 to be the International Day for Women and Girls in Science. Perhaps you could grab some STEM colleagues and have an impromptu celebration.

Summer School at Institut Mittag Leffler (Stockholm)

"Modern theory of group actions and the special role of finite simple groups"

The main speakers are:

  • Alice Niemeyer (RWTH Aachen University)
  • Cheryl Praeger (The University of Western Australia)
  • Colva Roney-Dougal (University of St Andrews)

who will each be teaching a 4-hr lecture course. There will be additional short spotlight lectures too.

There are 21 places available with funding, i.e., accommodation and meal allowance. Up to 13 additional participants are possible, provided they find (and pay for) their own accommodation.

Even before official registration at the IML is open, we invite applications!

Please include:

  • A short CV and informal statement on why you wish to attend and what you hope to get out of the school.
  • A short recommendation from a supervisor.

Potential participants who wish to apply for financial support are asked to outline their needs in their application letter. Our resources are however quite limited. As part of this summer school format we particularly encourage female candidates to apply!

Please email Rebecca Waldecker if you want to apply or in case of any questions.

The deadline for applications is February 1, 2019.
