Celebrating Women’s Achievements in Pure and Applied Mathematics

The Department of Mathematics had organised an International Conference on Women in Pure and Applied Mathematics (WPAM). The five-day-long conference featured luminaries in the field of Mathematics and was funded by three prominent Indian government research bodies: SERB, NBHM, and CSIR.

The event saw Prof. Raman Parimala, a renowned Indian Mathematician, acclaimed for her contributions to the field of Algebra. The Conference was held with the purpose of providing an empathetic platform for women mathematicians to present their cutting-edge research work and to share their concerns about the gender gap in mathematical science.

Prof. Sanoli Gun (President of Asian Oceanian Women in Mathematics), Prof. Vijaylaxmi Trivedi (Chairperson, Indian Women in Mathematics), and Prof. Anisa Chorwadwala (Member, Indian Women in Mathematics) motivated the students and provided the students with valuable inputs on how to pursue their career further in Mathematics. The luminaries also discussed activities conducted by their organisations to encourage established women researchers, women PhD scholars and advanced undergraduate-level women students in Mathematics.

During the conference, activities such as poster presentations were held to facilitate mathematical interaction between students. The conference ended with the hope that there will be more opportunities to organise similar events.
