at the

American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, California

organized by

Juliette Bruce, Pamela E. Harris, Isabelle Shankar, Kris Shaw, and Mariel Supina

The main topics for the workshop are:

- To broaden the standard notion of gender equity in mathematics, in order to include anyone who self-identifies as a gender minority, especially those who are excluded by the term “women in mathematics.” Specific topics may include supporting mathematicians of minority genders within academia, communicating with allies, gender equity and intersectionality, working with “women in math” organizations, and experiences of trans and non-binary mathematicians.
- To investigate problems in the intersection of algebraic combinatorics with algebraic geometry and commutative algebra. Possible topics include extending the relationship between matroid theory, tropical geometry, and algebraic geometry to the setting of Coxeter matroids, or connections between polyhedral geometry and toric geometry / multi graded commutative algebra.
- To investigate problems in the intersection of geometric combinatorics with optimization, machine learning, and data science. This could include problems such as understanding geometric objects in convex optimization from a combinatorial perspective, or applying discrete geometry techniques to data science.
