About TWIMS

TWIMS is a one-day workshop for Texas mathematicians. The goal of TWIMS is to strengthen the network of female mathematicians in Texas, which will encourage collaborations and mentoring relationships.


In addition, participants have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the research of other women in Texas
  • Present their work in a supportive environment
  • Network with other Texas women mathematicians
  • Explore issues surrounding being a woman in mathematics

The conference consists of parallel talk sessions in the morning and afternoon, a breakout session, and a keynote address.

Lunch and a social hour will be provided to all registered participants
