The committee’s remit is to provide advice to the EMS and EWM on scientific questions involving women and mathematics. It advises on scientific topics and speakers for events aimed at emphasizing women’s scientific contributions, such as those organised separately or jointly by EWM and the EMS. It may also be consulted about women speakers for other mathematical meetings or scientific activities, and other similar matters.
