WIMSIG Conference 2017: Celebration of Women in Australian Mathematical Sciences

Dates: 24–26 September 2017
Venue: University of South Australia, City West Campus, Adelaide

The Women in Mathematics group of the Australian Mathematical Society is organizing Australia's first research conference showcasing the research of women in the mathematical sciences. The conference welcomes people of any gender. All the research talks will be given by women. Mathematical science will be broadly interpreted to include:

  • pure mathematics
  • applied mathematics
  • mathematical statistics
  • applied statistics
  • biostatistics
  • bioinformatics
  • mathematical biology
  • mathematical physics
  • mathematics in industry, etc.

Confirmed plenary speakers:

We are planning

  • special sessions
  • plenary speakers
  • poster session
  • conference dinner
  • panel on gender equity in the mathematical sciences and beyond
  • professional development workshop.

Childcare will be available. We hope to offer some travel support, primarily for students and early-career researchers. Both female researchers and senior leaders (of any gender) in our discipline will find it eye-opening and inspiring to be in a majority-female research environment, even for a few days.

If you’re considering participating or would just like to be kept informed, please take a moment to fill out the brief Expression of Interest form on the conference website: http://www.austms.org.au/WIMSIG-conference-2017.
That will help us with our planning.


will open soon, via the conference website.

We warmly invite you to join us for this unique and exciting conference, which offers opportunities to hear Australia’s upcoming female mathematicians present their research, to build and extend research collaborations, to develop one’s professional skills, to consider how gender affects the development of mathematical careers, and to network with women in the Australian mathematical sciences.

Be part of this landmark event!
