We’re having a workshop with a bunch of cool math talks at U. C. Riverside, and you can register for it here:
• Riverside Mathematics Workshop for Excellence and Diversity, Friday 19 October – Saturday 20 October, 2018. Organized by John Baez, Carl Mautner, José González and Chen Weitao.
This is the first of an annual series of workshops to showcase and celebrate excellence in research by women and other under-represented groups for the purpose of fostering and encouraging growth in the U.C. Riverside mathematical community.
After tea at 3:30 p.m. on Friday there will be two plenary talks, lasting until 5:00. Catherine Searle will talk on “Symmetries of spaces with lower curvature bounds”, and Edray Goins will give a talk called “Clocks, parking garages, and the solvability of the quintic: a friendly introduction to monodromy”. There will then be a banquet in the Alumni Center 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
On Saturday there will be coffee and a poster session at 8:30 a.m., and then two parallel sessions on pure and applied mathematics, with talks at 9:30, 10:30, 11:30, 1:00 and 2:00. Check out the abstracts here!
(I’m especially interested in Christina Vasilakopoulou’s talk on Frobenius and Hopf monoids in enriched categories, but she’s my postdoc so I’m biased.)
