Why May12? Maryam Mirzakhani was born on this date in 1977. She was an Iranian mathematician and a Professor of Mathematics at Stanford University. She was one of the world’s leading experts in geometry and dynamical systems.


In Norway we are organizing an online meeting with talks, discussions and the option to watch an interesting documentary about women in science.

Do you want to attend? Please send an email to Nadia S. Larsen to receive the Zoom-link of the meeting.

The speakers are early stage female mathematicians who work at Norwegian universities. In their talks they will introduce us to their research topic and also tell about why they chose mathematics.The meeting is supported by EWM-Norway (European Women in Mathematics) but is open to all interested.

The meeting will be held in English.
