JOURNEYS OF WOMEN IN MATHEMATICS
The program opened with the world premiere of the first part of the film "Journeys of Women in Mathematics". The film was created by CWM, and made possible by a grant of Simons Foundation. The second part of the film was shot during the meeting.
The purpose of the group discussions is to debate gender issues in Mathematics. Participants were invited to join one of the proposed groups, according to their own interests and language skills. As an outcome of the discussion, each group formulated a question or a proposition, presented in the afternoon panel session.
