“European Women in Mathematics” is an association whose aims are to encourage women to study mathematics and work in the field of mathematics and to support women mathematicians in their careers. EWM links women from different countries and different mathematical specialties so that they can exchange their ideas and establish new contacts and collaborations. “…We have a network not only of contacts but of warm friendships right across Europe and beyond. In bringing together our ideas and our problems we have discovered a sense of identity that we did not know we possessed. We have shared more than our mathematics, we have shared our songs and our dreams…” (‘A brief and personal history of EWM’ Caroline Series).
For more than 20 years the association European Women in Mathematics (EWM) has organized biennial conferences which are open to members as well as non-members of EWM. The 14th general meeting of European Women in Mathematics will include three lectures by the 2009 European Mathematical Society lecturer, Ingrid Daubechies.
