Description
This 2-day workshop will showcase the contributions of female mathematicians to the three main themes of the associated MSRI program: Shimura varieties, p-adic automorphic forms, periods and L-functions. It will bring together women who are working in these areas in all stages of their careers, featuring lectures by both established leaders and emerging researchers. In addition, there will be a poster session open to all participants and an informal panel discussion on career issues.
