WIMS is a one-day conference for women in mathematics. The goal of WIMS is to strengthen the network of female mathematicians in the midwest, which will encourage collaborations and mentoring relationships.

In addition, participants have the opportunity to
  • Learn about the research of other women in the midwest
  • Present their work in a supportive environment
  • Network with other midwest women mathematicians
  • Explore issues surrounding being a woman in mathematics

    The first annual midwest WIMS was a great success, with about 40 participants and 20 speakers ranging from graduate student to full professor! We were very pleased with it and hope to see everyone next year at Notre Dame! Slides from talks will be available on this site under the participant list as they come in.

    The conference consisted of parallel talk sessions in the morning and afternoon, a breakout session, and a keynote address.

    Lunch was provided to all registered participants.
