Workshop Women in PDEs@Karlsruhe (April 27—28, 2017)

The aim of this workshop is to provide a platform to bring together students of mathematics, young researchers (PhD students and postdocs) and established female mathematicians from academia and industry working on partial differential equations (PDEs). Outstanding invited speakers will give talks on their current research topics. A panel discussion will give the possibility to discuss questions not only concerning research but also career choices/planning and practical questions of managing career and family interests.

Female participants are invited to present posters. For attendance registration will be required.
