6-10 June 2011, The fourth European Women in Mathematics Summer School

Date: 6-10 June 2011
Location: Lorentz Center, Leiden, the Netherlands

From 6-10 June the fourth European Women in Mathematics summer school will take place at the Lorentz Center in Leiden. As Logic is one of the central themes of this summer school this may be of interest to you. This summer school is especially aimed at encouraging female students and researchers at the beginning of their career, but also male students are very welcome to participate.

During the summer school the participants will be actively involved. Besides the lectures, there will be problem solving sessions on Logic and Geometry and a mini workshop on History in Mathematics. Furthermore, the participants will be asked to present their own work, so as to get to know each other and to practice presentation skills. Finally, possible barriers in an academic career and cultural differences will be discussed, both in particular in relation to gender issues. This set-up fosters an interactive and collaborative atmosphere and therefore all participants are encouraged to stay for the whole summer school period.
