The Retreat for Women in Applied Mathematics (RWAM) 2023 is a pilot event that aims to offer participants at all stages of their career a unique opportunity to network and learn about best academic practices. The programme comprises research talks and round-table discussions on: career paths, management and leadership, research funding, impact and innovation, university teaching, student supervision, and peer-reviewing, which are usually only informally discussed at conventional workshops and conferences. The overarching goal is to build a strong support network for female applied mathematicians, designed and led by women mathematicians, that will long serve as a source of inspiration, mentoring and collaboration, to foster trust, solidarity, confidence and forward-looking future initiatives.

Registration for the event will open on 1 September 2022, in the meantime you can register your interest in participating here. 

There will be a limited amount of funding availble to cover travel and accommodation costs in Edinburgh.
