Mathematics Symposium on Celebrating International Women in Mathematics Day


On Sunday, May 12, 2024, the mathematics department of Harish-Chandra Research Institute, India will host an event to celebrate International Women in Mathematics Day.

As you may know, this day honours Maryam Mirzakhani, an Iranian mathematician and Stanford University professor who was born on May 12, 1977. In 2014, Mirzakhani became the first woman to receive the Fields Medal for her work on the geometry and dynamics of Riemann surfaces. She died from breast cancer in 2017 at the age of 40. The 12th of May, her birthday, was chosen to celebrate Women in Mathematics in her memory.

To mark this occasion, we are organising a one-day online symposium featuring five talks by our guest speakers: Dr. Pratima Hebbar, Dr. Gangotryi Sorcar, Dr. Sayani Bera, Dr. Yajnaseni Dutta and Dr. Shalini Bhattacharya.
