Women in Commutative Algebra II
Villa Balduini - Tambosi
CIRM Trento, Italy
October 16 -20, 2023
The main objectives of this workshop are to advance commutative
algebra through cutting-edge research, to promote the research of
women in commutative algebra, to facilitate collaborative interaction
between junior and senior mathematicians, and to provide mentoring for
early career mathematicians.
We aim to help cultivate a research network among women commutative
algebraists, including those from historically underrepresented
groups, from universities with a teaching focus and small colleges,
and those isolated geographically from potential collaborators.
Building on the WICA I
model, we will divide the WICA II participants into smaller working
groups. Each group will focus on a different research problem,
directed by leaders in the field. The rest of the group members will
be selected based on applications. The organizers will also work with
the leaders in selecting group members with the appropriate training,
expertise, and interest for each project.
Schedule: can be found here.
Application Deadline: May 1, 2023
Applications are now closed.
Families and Childcare:
We will be hosting a children-friendly event, where participants
are welcome to come accompanied by their children and spouse or other
caregiver. A room will be reserved at the venue for
(breast)feeding/baby changing etc. If we know in advance how many
children will be present and what their age is, we can arrange some
small entertainment (crayons, books from the library, a guide on
activities in the city and surroundings).
If you need info or have any particular needs, please contact Elisa
