Women in Algebra and Symbolic Computations

The workshop “Women in Algebra and Symbolic Computations” takes place from Monday, 9th  December to Wednesday, 11th December 2019, in the Kurpark-Hotel in Bad Dürkheim. The organisors are Niamh Farrell, Hannah Markwig, Frank-Olaf Schreyer and Michael Kunte.


The conference is dedicated to the promotion of female researchers in the research area of our TRR. Hence the algebraic disciplines group and representation theory, algebraic geometry, commutative and non-commutative algebra, tropical and polyhedral geometry, number theory as well as random matrix theory and free probability are included. These mathematical fields are connected through symbolic methods and computations.

We are aiming at providing a stimulating platform for female researchers – networking is one of the main objectives of the workshop. This includes established female researches as well as Postdocs and graduate students. Male participants are very welcome and encouraged to attend.

In addition, there will be a panel discussion on “Women in Mathematics”. All questions on the subject are welcome.
