AWM Workshop/Alice T. Schafer Prize Session

Sponsored by the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM). The AWM Workshop is funded with support from the National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research.

The Association for Women in Mathematics will hold an all-day workshop the day before the SIAM Annual Meeting, highlighting the work of 20 female graduate students and postdoctoral applied mathematicians. The speakers and poster presenters will be chosen competitively. All mathematicians are invited to attend the presentations, and departments are urged to help graduate students and postdocs obtain institutional support to attend the workshop and the SIAM meeting. The workshop will include a panel discussion on academic, industrial, and government career paths, and a panel on government funding sources. At the conclusion of the workshop, AWM will present the Fifth Annual Alice T. Schafer Mathematics Prize for excellence in undergraduate mathematics. The AWM banquet will be held that evening to honor the workshop participants and the Schafer Prize honorees. Our guest speaker will be Dr. Margaret H. Wright of AT&T Bell Laboratories, President-Elect of SIAM.

There is no registration fee for the workshop or prize session. Pre-registration for the workshop lunch and dinner banquet is encouraged.
