The International Center for Mathematical Sciences – Sofia (ICMS-Sofia), affiliated with the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, is a dynamic research unit for developing and dissemination of cutting edge new directions in Mathematics. It is created with the mission to disseminate advances in the research in Mathematics and its applications to the mathematical and scientific communities in South-Eastern Europe; to connect Bulgarian Mathematics with leading mathematical institutions and increase the level of Bulgarian science and education. Part of the activities of the Center is related to supporting the reintegration and the career development of promising young Bulgarian mathematicians.
The initiative Women in Mathematics of South-Eastern Europe, aiming at promoting the role of female mathematicians, started in Dec 2020, when the inaugural conference took place. We intend to make these conferences annual. The main goal of these conferences is to celebrate women in Mathematics, to disseminate new results and create new long-term collaborations among scientists in South-Eastern Europe. We hope Women in Mathematics of South-Eastern Europe will attract the attention of young researchers and researchers from less-favoured countries.
The speakers are proposed by an international committee including Mina Teicher (Department of Mathematics and Gonda Brain Research Center, Director of Emmy Noether Institute for Mathematics), Phillip Griffiths (Professor Emeritus, Institute for Advanced Study, USA), Ludmil Katzarkov (Miami University, Co-director of the Institute of Mathematical Sciences of the Americas), Velichka Milousheva (Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Deputy Director).
