WOMEN IN GEOMETRY AND TOPOLOGY
The workshop Women in Geometry and Topology is an endeavour organized by the GEOMVAP research group at UPC and financed under the AGAUR project 2017SGR932 .
The group GEOMVAP focuses in Geometry and Topology in the broad sense and its applications to several topics suchs as Celestial Mechanics, Control Theory, Mathematical Physics, Phylogenetics and Robotics.
GEOMVAP promotes, in particular, Responsible, Research and Innovation within the framework of Horizon 2020. Among the RRI initiatives we strive for gender equality, public engagement, science communication and the visibility of women in Science and Society.
The Workshop Women in Geometry and Topology will feature several plenary talks by top female mathematicians and some contributed talks (contributed by speakers of any gender identity).
There will be two public lectures by Marta Macho (Scientific Culture Chair UPV/EHU, RSME Medal 2015, Emakunde Equality Prize 2016) and Carme Torras (Narcís Monturiol Medal 2000) addressed to the general public (you don't need to be a mathematician to follow them you just need to be curious!).
A panel (open to the public) will also be organized in order to discuss the situation of women in mathematics, the gender gap and strategies for breaking the glass-ceiling inside and outside academia. Other complementary activities will be announced in due time.
