Women in Mathematics in Southern California

The 12th annual Women in Mathematics in Southern California (WimSoCal) will be held on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at California State University Channel Islands. The symposium will provide an opportunity for women in mathematics in the Southern California area to get to know each other on a personal as well as a professional level. Our aim is to create a network of women mathematicians that nurtures collaboration and provides a framework for mentoring.

Attendees of this symposium will:

  • Learn about research being conducted by their colleagues across Southern California.
  • Present their work in an encouraging environment.
  • Network with fellow Southern California women mathematicians.
  • Explore issues surrounding being a woman in mathematics.

The symposium is free. Lunch and parking will be provided to registered participants. All are welcome to register regardless of gender.
