INVITED LECTURES


GROUP DISCUSSIONS

The purpose of the group discussions is to debate gender issues in Mathematics. Participants are invited to join one of the proposed groups, according to their own interests and language skills. As an outcome of the discussion, each group will formulate a question or a proposition, to be rediscussed in the afternoon panel session, with a broader audience. We expect to make this activity welcoming and to stimulate people to actively participate, bringing depth to the discussions.
