Application deadline for graduate students:  August 15, 2017

The AWM Workshops serve as follow-up workshops to Research Collaboration Conferences for Women (RCCW)s, featuring both junior and senior women speakers from one of the Research Networks supported by the AWM ADVANCE grant.  

When: The next AWM workshop to be held in conjunction with the annual Joint Mathematics Meetings will be in San Diego, CA January 10 - 13,  2018.

The AWM workshop will consist of a Special Session focused on Noncommutative Algebra and Representation Theory and a Poster Session for graduate students. The Poster Session will be open to all areas of research and graduate students working in areas related to Noncommutative Algebra and Representation Theory are especially encouraged to apply.  The graduate students will be selected to present posters at the Workshop Reception & Poster Session. With funding from NSF, AWM will offer partial support for travel and hotel accommodations for the selected graduate students. The workshop will include a reception, luncheon and a mentoring session where workshop participants will have the opportunity to meet with other women mathematicians at all stages of their careers.  In particular, graduate students in Noncommutative Algebra and Representation Theory will have the opportunity to connect with the Women in Noncommutative Algebra and Representation Theory (WINART) Research Network.

Poster Competition:  As part of the Workshop Poster Session there will be a Poster 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.
Mentors: We also seek volunteers to act as mentors for workshop participants, in particular, the graduate students. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the AWM office at  
Eligibility: To be eligible for selection and funding, a graduate student must have made substantial progress towards her thesis.  Women with grants or other sources of support are welcome to apply. All non-US citizens must have a current US address.

All applications should include:


• a title of the proposed poster

• an abstract in the form required for AMS Special Session submissions for the Joint Mathematics Meetings

• a curriculum vitae

• one letter of recommendation from her thesis advisor

Applications (including abstract submission via the Joint Mathematics Meetings website) must be completed electronically by  August 15, 2017.
