Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi celebrated the International Women in Mathematics Day13 June, 2022
Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi hosted a hybrid conference from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM in commemoration of International Women in Mathematics Day.
The conference was organised by Dr Lama Tarsissi, Assistant Professor in Mathemat-ics Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi and an Ambassador of The Committee for Wom-en in Mathematics (CWM) in Lebanon and in the UAE.
The International Women in Mathematics Day aims to shed light on women’s con-tributions in mathematics and inspires them to participate in the scientific field.
This conference also comes in line with Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi’s efforts to empower women by hosting renowned female mathematicians who presented their studies and research materials in the field of mathematics across 7 hybrid sessions.
The hybrid conference started with a presentation by Dr Grace Younes, Assistant Professor of Mathematics Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi and was followed by 6 other consecutive presentations by Rola Kiwan Assistant Professor of Mathematics American University in Dubai, Dr Lama Tarsissi, Assistant Professor in Mathematics Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi and CWM Ambassador in Lebanon and in the UAE, Lena Sasal, PhD student SCAI Abu Dhabi in Artificial Intelligence for Total energies, and Olga Nassar an adjunct instructor at the American University in Dubai and Wol-longong University in Dubai, Dr Elena Beretta, Clinic Professor NYUAD , and Dr Caro-lina Araujo, a Brazilian mathematician working in the field of complex algebraic ge-ometry and Vice-Chair of the CWM of the International Mathematical Union.
The event focused on exchanging knowledge and research findings on various topics including Certified computation of the L∞-norm of finite-dimensional linear sys-tems, Sharp eigenvalues of the Dirichlet Laplacian, Artificial Intelligence, Synchroni-sation of three Christoffel words, Mathematics for Our Data-Oriented Modern Socie-ty, Analysis of a model of elastic dislocations in geophysics, and Symmetries in Alge-braic Geometry Dr Lama Tarsissi, Assistant Professor in Mathematics Sorbonne University Abu Dha-bi and Ambassador of The Committee for Women in Mathematics (CWM) in Leba-non and in the UAE commented:
“I am very pleased to organise this conference for the second consecutive year, which came in line with Sorbonne University Abu Dhabi’s strategy to inspire women to share their knowledge and celebrate their achievements in the field of mathe-matics. I believe that such initiatives play an important role in building a positive and inclusive working environment that empowers women and recognizes their role in supporting the development process on a local and global scale”
The conference ended with participants receiving certificates of appreciation.
