Polish Women in Mathematics and the Faculty of Applied Mathematics of the AGH University of Science and Technology are pleased to announce a conference On the Trail of Women in Mathematics - in Honor of Sofia Kowalewska that will be held on August 31 - September 2, 2019 in  Krakow at The AGH University of Science and Technology (Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Building B7), al. A. Mickiewicza 30. The main purpose of the Conference is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and present the latest research.

The subject of the conference will focus on the issues that Sofia Kowalewska dealt with and developed, namely differential equations, specially partial differential equations (PDE). Real issues, described by means of the continually developed mathematical apparatus, which are partial differential equations, constitute key elements, and even the basis for the development of an extremely large number of areas - not only technology, but also medicine, biology, meteorology, social sciences and other sciences.

The conference topics will cover multiple issues related to PDE and their applications, analysis of compressible and incompressible fluid mechanics, general relativity theory, kinetic theory, probabilistic approaches, etc.

On the other hand our aim is to honor Kowalewska's pioneering role as a female mathematician.
