The meeting coincides with International Women’s Day, held annually on March 8 to celebrate the
achievements of women.

Why hold such a workshop? Currently only 6% of UK Maths Professors are female (Advancing
Women in Mathematics: Good Practice in UK University Departments; LMS Report 27/02/2013).

This workshop forms part of a wider set of conferences, workshops and short courses supported by OxPDE. 
The workshop is open to all but registration is required.
