CALL FOR NOMINATIONS FOR THE INAUGURAL AWM DISSERTATION PRIZE

Deadline October 1, 2016

In January 2016 the Executive Committee of the Association for Women in Mathematics established the AWM Dissertation Prize, an annual award for up to three outstanding Ph.D. dissertations presented by female mathematical scientists and defended during the 24 months preceding the deliberations for the award. The Prizes will be given for those dissertations deemed most outstanding by the award committee. The award is intended to be based entirely on the dissertation itself, not on other work of the individual. Click here for more details.

The Executive Committee of the Association for Women in Mathematics has established the AWM-Microsoft Research Prize in Algebra and Number Theory. First presented in 2014, the prize will be awarded every other year. The purpose of the award is to highlight exceptional research in some area of algebra by a woman early in her career. The field will be broadly interpreted to include number theory, cryptography, combinatorics and other applications, as well as more traditional areas of algebra. Candidates should be women, based at US institutions who are within 10 years of receiving their PhD, or having not yet received tenure, at the nomination deadline. The AWM-Microsoft Research Prize serves to highlight to the community outstanding contributions by women in the field and to advance the careers of the prize recipients. The award is made possible by a generous contribution from Microsoft Research. For more information, please click here

The Mathematics and Mathematicians Behind Hidden Figures

posted Dec 15, 2016, 1:35 PM by Amanda Leibert   [ updated Dec 15, 2016, 1:37 PM ]

The Association for Women in Mathematics is co-sponsoring a special panel presentation,  The Mathematics and Mathematicians Behind Hidden Figures, at the JMM, Wednesday January 4, 2017, 6:30 – 8:00 pm

Hear first-hand from the author who uncovered the mathematical contributions of African-American women whose achievements launched them to the forefront of space flight.  Learn about their preparation, persistence in the face of social and political obstacles, and unconventional career paths that led to seminal contributions within the U.S. space program.

Moderated by Tanya Moore, co-founder of the Infinite Possibilities Conference, the panel features:

·  Margo Lee Shetterly, author of Hidden Figures

·  Christine Darden, leader of the Sonic Boom Team at NASA

·  Highlights of the mathematics of “computer” Dorothy Hoover from Ulrica Wilson, Associate Professor of Mathematics, Morehouse College
