AWM Activities at SIAM Annual Meeting

Monday, July 9 – Tuesday, July 10 , 2018 Portland, OR


In 2018, the workshop, supported by the NSF and the AWM ADVANCE grant, will consist of two research minisymposia focused on Shape Analysis and Modeling, organized by Megan Owen, Cindy Grimm, a Poster Session for graduate students and an informational mini-symposium directed at starting a career.  Selected junior and senior women from the Research Collaboration Conference for Women (RCCW): Women in Shape-2: Modeling Boundaries of Objects in 2- and 3-Dimensions, will be invited to give 20-minutes talks in the two research mini-symoposia. 

As part of the workshop there will be a Poster Presentation and Competition. A team of judges will select the top poster. The winner will be offered a prize of a visit to a North American Mathematical Sciences Institute event with basic expenses paid. The prize visit will
  normally occur within a year of the date of the poster competition unless there are unusual circumstances. The Mathematical Sciences Institutes with the help of Dr. Leslie Hogben, AIM, and Dr. Ulrica Wilson, ICERM, Co-Chairs of the Mathematical Sciences Institute Diversity Committee  will work with the recipient of the top poster award to find the best opportunity available for that poster presenter.

AWM-SIAM Sonia Kovalevsky Lecture

AWM and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) established the annual Sonia Kovalevsky Lecture to highlight significant contributions of women to applied or computational mathematics. The first lecture took place in 2003 and has since been given each year at the SIAM Annual Meeting.     

Eva Tardos will deliver the 2018 Sonia Kovalevsky Lecture
