AWM Activities at the Joint Mathematics Meetings
AWM Noether Lecture
The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) annually presents the Noether Lecture to honor women who have made fundamental and sustained contributions to the mathematical sciences. Emmy Noether was one of the great mathematicians of her time, someone who worked and struggled for what she loved and believed in. Her life and work remain a tremendous inspiration.
Wen-Ching Winnie Li will give the 2015 AWM-AMS Noether Lecture
Sunday January 11, 10:05 - 10:55 am, Lila Cockrell Theatre, Convention Center
AWM Business Meeting is open to the public and is generally scheduled on the first day of JMM
AWM Panel – AWM typically sponsors a panel discussion on topics of current interests to its members. For information about the 2015 panel, Breaking the Class Ceiling Permanently click here. For more information about past panels select from the list below:
AWM Workshop for graduate students and women who have received the Ph.D. within the last five years.
The workshop features short talks by recent PhDs and a poster session by graduate students. The research area for the talks will be focused, and the research theme will change from year to year. Poster presenters will be chosen from all fields of mathematics. A cohort of recent PhDs will join senior women for a day long series of talks in a JMM special session format. Graduate students will present posters during the AWM Workshop Reception held the evening before the workshop talks.
AWM Reception and Awards Presentation – open to all JMM conference participants and held immediately after the Gibbs Lecture the first day of the meetings. The reception is a social event offering an opportunity for AWM to share announcements of interest to the mathematical community, highlight women mathematicians accomplishments and networking. AWM provides food and a cash bar. In 2015 we will present the Birman Researh Prize winner, the AWM Service Award winners and honor all of the Alice T. Schafer award winners: first prize, runner up, and honorable mentions. The first prize winner is presented at the joint prize session.
