### Communicating Mathematics Conference

#### Posted by Emily Riehl

Communicating Mathematics is a 4-day workshop for mathematicians at all career stages who are interested in exploring how we share our research and interests with fellow mathematicians, students, and the public.

The workshop takes place August 8-11 at Cornell University and will run concurrently online over zoom.

Planned sessions and workshops include:

Mathematics for the common good (social and civil justice issues)

Engaging the public in mathematical discourse

Inclusivity and communication in the classroom

Communicating to policymakers

Community outreach: communicating mathematics to young people (e.g. math circles)

Advocating for your department (communicating to university administration)

Communicating with fellow mathematicians:

What makes an engaging research talk?

How should we be communicating our work to each other?

Succinctly describing your research to both a specialist and non-specialist.

We will also have structured breakout/lunchtime discussions on specific issues related to improving communication and dissemination.

Speakers and panelists include:

Erika Tatiana Camacho (NSF)

Moon Duchin (Tufts University / Metric Geometry and Gerrymandering Group)

Jordan Ellenberg (University of Wisconsin)

Rochelle Gutiérrez (UIUC)

Lily Khadjavi (Loyola Marymount University)

Michelle Manes (University of Hawaii)

John Meier (Provost, Lafayette college)

Karen Saxe (AMS Office of government relations)

Steve Strogatz (Cornell University)

Peter Trapa (Dean of College of Science, University of Utah)

Sam Vandervelde (founder of Proof School)

Amie Wilkinson (University of Chicago)
