Women in Computability Workshop

Coordinators: Paola Bonizzoni (Milano) and Elvira Mayordomo (Zaragoza)

Women in Computer Science and Mathematics face particular challenges in pursuing and maintaining academic and scientific careers. Women are significantly underrepresented at all levels of the academic pipeline, while the very few female students involved in Computing and Mathematical Research need to be aware of their talent and role in the scientific community. Indeed, the scarcity of senior women academicians produces the lack of critical information about the culture and content required for pursuing careers in the mathematical sciences.

The Women in Computability workshop aims to bring together women in Computing and Mathematical research to present and exchange their academic and scientific experience with young researchers. The meeting will offer the CIE scientific community the opportunity to encourage young students, especially young female researchers, to have active careers in the mathematical and computational sciences. The CIE community will also discuss on the status of women in Computability research.
