Program Description:    

For many years, the Association for Women in Mathematics has held a series of workshops for women graduate students and recent PhDs in conjunction with major mathematics meetings. New in 2016 and going forward is that the workshop talks are supported by the AWM ADVANCE grant. The AWM Workshops serve as follow-up workshops to Research Collaboration Conferences for Women, featuring both junior and senior women speakers from one of the Research Networks supported by the ADVANCE grant.

WHEN: An AWM Workshop is scheduled to be held in conjunction with the 2021 SIAM Annual Meeting, July 19th - July 23th, 2021 in Spokane, Washington.

FORMAT: The workshop will consist of two research minisymposia focused on Control and Optimization in Differential Equations organized by Lorena Bociu and Mary Ann Horn, a Poster Session and an informational minisymposium directed at starting a career. Selected junior and senior women from the Research Collaboration Conference for Women (RCCW), Women in Control WIC, will be invited to give 20-minutes talks in the two research minisymposia. The speakers will be supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) AWM ADVANCE grant: Career Advancement for Women Through Research Focused Networks. The Poster Session will be open to all areas of research; graduate students working in areas related to control and optimization in differential equations are especially encouraged to apply. The graduate students will be selected through an application process to present posters at the Workshop Poster Session held in conjunction with the SIAM Poster Session. AWM will offer partial support for travel and hotel accommodations for the selected graduate students, pending NSF funding. The workshop will include a luncheon and mentoring session where workshop participants will have the opportunity to meet with other women mathematicians at all stages of their careers, and a career panel which will be open to the public. In particular graduate students working in areas related to the control and optimization in differential equations will have the opportunity to connect with the Women in Control (WIC) Research Network. All mathematicians (female and male) are invited to attend the talks, career panel and poster presentations. Departments are urged to help graduate students and junior faculty who are not selected for the workshop to obtain institutional support to attend the presentations.

MENTORS: We also seek volunteers to act as mentors for workshop participants, in particular the graduate students. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the AWM office at by May 15, 2021.

ELIGIBILITY: Graduate students and recent PhDs should apply! To be eligible for selection and funding, a graduate student must have made substantial progress towards her thesis. Women with grants or other sources of support are welcome to apply. All non-US citizens must have a current US address.

All applications should include:
• a title of the proposed poster
• an abstract (75 words or less) of the proposed poster
• a curriculum vitae
• a letter of recommendation from her thesis advisor.

Applications must be completed electronically by November 15, 2020. See
