Australian Women of Maths exhibition

Date & time: 3.30–5pm 12 May 2021, AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time)
Location: Sr 1.33, Hanna Neumann Bldg #145 Science Road Canberra ACT 2601 Australian National University 

Registrations close Monday 11 May 2021.

The 12th of May is the birthday of the extraordinary mathematician Maryam Mirzakhani, who in 2014 became the first woman and the first Iranian to be awarded a Fields Medal. Maryam died of cancer in 2017 at just 40 years of age, and to mark her amazing contributions to the field, her birthday has been chosen to celebrate Women in Mathematics worldwide.

To mark this important date, the Mathematical Sciences Institute will launch the Australian Women of Mathematics exhibit, an artistic and scientific project that offers a glimpse into the world of mathematics through photographs and excerpts of interviews of thirteen women mathematicians throughout Australia and New Zealand.

This event will be a great opportunity to meet some of the mathematicians included in the exhibition, hear about the creative energy that drives mathematicians and the human stories that connect the mathematical community.

Afternoon tea will be available from 3:30pm for a 4pm start. Places are limited and we recommend booking at your earliest convenience to secure a spot.
