AIMS South Africa hosted a workshop on discrete mathematics and its applications featuring women and their research in graph theory, combinatorics, and discrete optimization. This was the second important work shop featuring women in science in as many months. The luminaries assembled from Jan. 24 to 26.
The top goals were to develop a network of African women with common mathematical interests and to increase the visibility of women in mathematics to African students, researchers, and professors. The next step is to provide support to participants as they complete their graduate work and develop their careers. The workshop was organized by Dr. Nancy Ann Nedudauer, Professor at Pacific University, and had 51 participants – 38 were AIMS students.
