2nd Workshop on String Theory and Gender

Europe/Paris
Amphitheater Darboux (Intitut Henri Poincare)

Amphitheater Darboux

Intitut Henri Poincare

11 Rue Pierre et Marie Curie, 75005 Paris
Description

The purpose of this workshop is to raise awareness on the gender (in)equality issue in our field, as one of the main mandates of the COST Action 'The String Theory Universe'

Two half days of the workshop will be devoted to gender issues, with talks by experts (scientists as well as representatives of research organisations) on the gender dimension in science, statistics on women participation at different career stages, reasons for the gender imbalance and possible actions to improve the situation. The other half days will be devoted to recent developments in String Theory, with overview talks on specific subjects that have been particularly active lately.

This workshop is the second of this kind (the first workshop on string theory and gender took place in Valencia in July 2015), and is framed within the String-Math trimester at Institut Henri Poincare.

Since no real change can be achieved without the complicity of all the people involved, we want to encourage men and women, junior and senior scientists, to participate in the workshop.
