It All Adds Up: Celebrating Women Across the Mathematical Sciences

Tuesday 14th April, 2015 to Friday 17th April, 2015
University of Oxford, Wellington Square, Oxford, OX1 2JD

This year the London Mathematical Society's annual Women in Maths day was expanded to four days (14-17 April) as part of the LMS 150th Anniversary celebrations. 

#italladdsup2015

School mathematicians

The first day was aimed at mathematically-inclined girls in Years 9, 10 and 11, while the second day was for girls in Years 12 and 13 who are studying A-level Further Mathematics or its equivalent. Each of these days featured inspiring talks by female mathematicians and workshops in which the students tackled stimulating mathematics themselves. The school students also had opportunities to chat to undergraduates and others about mathematical possibilities beyond school level.

University mathematicians

The third and fourth days were aimed at mathematicians and mathematical scientists at all stages of their university careers (undergraduate to professor). This part of the event featured a mix of lectures by invited speakers, panel discussions on a range of topics, contributed talks by early career researchers, and poster displays. Participants had plenty of opportunities to meet other mathematicians, including at the conference dinner on the evening of Thursday 16th April.

Venue

The event was held at the Oxford Mathematical Institute in the new Andrew Wiles Building.
