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.)

Those of you into category theory should check out Paolo Solis’ talk about monads and vector bundles on and also Christina Vasilikopoulou’s talk on Hopf and Frobenius monoids.

You can use Markdown or HTML in your comments. You can also use LaTeX, like this: $latex E = m c^2 $. The word 'latex' comes right after the first dollar sign, with a space after it. Cancel reply

You need the word 'latex' right after the first dollar sign, and it needs a space after it. Double dollar signs don't work, and other limitations apply, some described here. You can't preview comments here, but I'm happy to fix errors.
