Women of Mathematics throughout Europe - A Gallery of portraits

This is an extended exhibition, edited by Sylvie Paycha and Noel Tovia Matoff as part of the 8th European Congress of Mathematics, and hosted by University of Primorska.

The organizer of the exhibition is the Committee for Women at the Society of Mathematicians, Physicists and Astronomers of Slovenia (DMFA). The Committee is devoted to promoting the studies of mathematics, physics and astronomy among girls and women, and is advocating achievements of women in science.

Women of Mathematics throughout Europe is a touring exhibition whose starting point was the 7th ECM held in July 2016 in Berlin.
