Research Collaboration Conference for Women in Symplectic and Contact Geometry and Topology Workshop (WiSCon)
July 22 - 26, 2019
ICERM, Brown University
WiSCon is a Research Collaboration Conference for Women (RCCW) in the fields of contact and symplectic geometry/topology and related areas of low-dimensional topology. The goal of this workshop is to bring together women and nonbinary researchers at various career stages in these mathematical areas to collaborate in groups on projects designed and led by female leaders in the field.
Senior graduate students and early career researchers (including tenure-track) are strongly encouraged to apply!
Participants will work in teams on research projects, with researchers leading the projects including: â€¢ Penka Georgieva (Sorbonne) â€¢ Eli Grigsby (Boston College) â€¢ Tara Holm (Cornell) â€¢ Jen Hom (Georgia Tech) â€¢ Ailsa Keating (Cambridge) â€¢ Christine Ruey Shan Lee (University of South Alabama) â€¢ Chiu-Chu Melissa Liu (Columbia) â€¢ Allison Moore (UC Davis) â€¢ Emmy Murphy (Northwestern) â€¢ Yu Pan (MIT) â€¢ Ina Petkova (Dartmouth) â€¢ Ana Rita Pires (Edinburgh) â€¢ Olga Plamenevskaya (Stony Brook) â€¢ Radmila SazdanoviÄ‡ (North Carolina State) â€¢ Laura Starkston (UC Davis) â€¢ Lisa Traynor (Bryn Mawr) â€¢ Vera VÃ©rtesi (Strasbourg) â€¢ Katrin Wehrheim (UC Berkeley)
Applications are now open and will close on December 3, 2018.
This workshop is partially supported by NSF-HRD 1500481 - AWM ADVANCE grant.
