: WIMSIG Conference 2021, Friday 1 October 2021, free registration

The Women in Mathematics Special Interest Group of the AustMS (WIMSIG) is hosting its 2nd-ever conference on Friday 1 October.  Registration is free and open to all. Due to the situation in Sydney, the Sydney hub will be fully online, but some other lucky local hubs will be meeting in person. The plenary speakers are

  Hamideh Anjomshoa (IBM, Melbourne)
  Shelley Harvey (Rice University)
  Kristian Lum (Lead statistician, Human Rights Data Analysis Group)
  Asha Rao (RMIT)

Catherine Penington (Macquarie) is the local Sydney organiser.  She tells me that the "local activity" in the morning will be a poster session.  (By the way, Catherine is also happy to hear from anyone who would like to assist in the organisation.)

The announcement below contains a link to the conference webpage and a link to the registration site.  

Best wishes


WIMSIG Conference 2021

Celebration of Women in Australian Mathematical Sciences

The WIMSIG Conference 2021 (postponed from 2020) will now be taking place at a range of “local hubs” on Friday 1 October this year. There will be events in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide, and Perth.

This one-day conference will have a mixture of local (in-person) activities and joint online activities. Local activities may include the opportunity for participants to present their research.

The COVID situation is ever changing. Contingency plans are in place to ensure an interesting event will take place, whether you are able to attend in person or online. Local organisers of in person events need to finalise their COIVD safe plans, so please register your proposed attendance here.  All welcome!
