The 2018 German Chapter Conference of the European Women in Mathematics, organized by UPSTREAM - The Network for Women in Maths, Heidelberg, and the Konstanz Women in Mathematics: Paths in Studies and Career (KWIM), is a space supporting women in their careers and giving them prominence and visibility, the conference follows the EWM tradition since its foundation in 1986.

The aim of this conference is to promote communication and networking between mathematicians from all research areas, offering in particular a platform to female mathematicians at all academic stages for presenting their mathematical results, sharing their experiences and discussing the challenges related to the gender gap in this field.

The scientific programme will consists of one-hour talks by four keynote speakers, shorter contributed talks to be presented in parallel thematic sessions, and a poster session with one-minute presentations for each poster. The programme will include an invited talk on gender balance in academia encouraging active discussion among the participants about this issue for mathematicians in Germany.
