National Mathematical Congress
EWM –The Netherlands is typically invited to organise a session at the Dutch Mathematical Congress. The congress is held right after the Easter break and is formed by the participation of all four mathematics clusters and two NWO Gravitation programmes, in addition to sessions by 4TU.AMI, PWN, KWG, the Teachers meeting and Prizes ceremony, and of course the EWM-NL session.
Part of the goals of EWM-NL is to establish a framework of activities to support women in research in the Netherlands, and particularly early career researchers, to enter and establish careers in mathematics. With the NMC sessions we organise, we wish to give the opportunity to early career mathematicians to have a more in depth and relaxed conversation with invited speakers.
The EWM-NL session focuses on career tips for young professionals by some of the invited speakers to the congress and a discussion on the career development in Dutch academia. The typical format we give to the EWM-NL session is as follows: after a brief presentation of the activities of EWM-NL, we invite our speakers to give a brief narration of about 5 minutes on the topics of how they chose for mathematics, how their professional career developed so far and close with two pieces of advice that they would have wished to have received in their early-career stage. The second half of the session is left open for questions from the attendees and discussion.
In connection to this session, we also publish a short interview of the speakers we invite. Links to interviews of past speakers can be found on our webpage.
We hope to see you all there!
