Career Advancement for Women Through Research-Focused Networks
The project, which started September 1, 2015, is funded for five years and will focus on establishing
research networks for women by fostering research collaborations at conferences and AWM Workshops.
These networks are spawned at Research Collaboration Conferences for Women (RCCWs), which are
week-long conferences, held at mathematics institutes, where junior and senior women come together to
work on pre-defined research projects.
First workshops supported by the grant: The 2016 AWM Workshop at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Seattle will feature a special session on Algebraic Combinatorics. At the SIAM Annual Meeting in July 2016, the AWM Workshop will serve as a follow-up to the research collaboration conference WhAM! (Women in Applied Mathematics) with a special session entitled Dynamical Systems with Applications to Biology and Medicine.
