AWM at SIAM 2024

SIAM Annual Meeting

Spokane, Washington

July 8 – 12, 2024.



Application deadline for graduate students: November 15, 2023

For many years, the Association for Women in Mathematics has held a series of workshops in conjunction with major mathematics meetings. The AWM Workshops serve as follow-up workshops to Research Collaboration Conferences for Women (RCCW), featuring speakers from one of the AWM Research Networks. An AWM Workshop is scheduled to be held in conjunction with the 2024 SIAM Annual Meeting happening in Spokane, Washington, July 8 – 12, 2024.

FORMAT: The workshop will consist of two research minisymposia focused on Complex and Nonlinear Systems organized by Heather Zinn Brooks, Nancy Rodriguez, and Alexandria Volkening, a poster session, and a professional development session. The research minisymposia will feature selected junior and senior mathematicians from the Research Network Women in Complex and Nonlinear Systems (WiCNS). This workshop follows the RCCW that took place in September 2022 at the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery.

POSTER SESSION: The poster session is open to all areas of research; graduate students working in areas related to complex systems are especially encouraged to apply. Poster presenters will be selected through an application process to present at the workshop reception and poster session. With funding from NSF, AWM will offer partial support for travel and hotel accommodations for the selected graduate students. The workshop will include a luncheon and a mentoring session where workshop participants will have the opportunity to meet with other women and non-binary mathematicians at all stages of their careers. In particular, graduate students working in areas related to complex and nonlinear systems will have the opportunity to connect with the WiCNS Research Network.

ELIGIBILITY: To be eligible for selection and funding, a graduate student must have made substantial progress towards their thesis. Women and non-binary mathematicians with other sources of support are also welcome to apply.

All applications should be submitted on and include:

  • a title of the proposed poster
  • an abstract (75 words or less) of the proposed poster 
  • a curriculum vitae
  • a letter of recommendation.

Applications must be completed electronically by November 15, 2023 (through

MENTORS: We seek volunteers to act as mentors for graduate students as part of the workshop. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the AWM office at by May 15, 2024.


Mathematicians of all genders are invited to attend the talks and poster presentations. Departments are urged to help graduate students and junior faculty who are not selected for the workshop obtain institutional support to attend the presentations.

Thanks to Our Sponsors

In addition to the many committee volunteers that make AWM events great, the AWM Workshop is organized by the Research Network WiCNS and supported by the NSF-DMS Grant #2113506.  Poster presenter are sponsored to attend a workshop at one of the Mathematical Sciences Institutes. This prize is made possible by the Mathematical Sciences Institutes Diversity Committee.
