Format: The workshop will consist of a Special Session focused on Noncommutative Algebra and Representation Theory organized by Anne Shepler and Sarah Witherspoon, and a Poster Session for graduate students. Selected junior and senior women from the Research Collaboration Conferences for Women (RCCW) WINART, which was held at BIRS in April 2016, will be invited to give 20-minutes talks in the Special Session on Noncommutative Algebra and Representation Theory. The speakers will be supported by the National Science Foundation AWM ADVANCE grant: Career Advancement for Women Through Research Focused Networks. 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 through an application process 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..
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.
