Event description
The main focus of the QTMC is to promote retention of queer and trans mathematicians in combinatorics.

About this Event

The Queer and Trans Mathematicians in Combinatorics Conference (QTMC) is the first-ever event in combinatorics specifically aimed at queer and trans mathematicians! This two-day virtual conference will showcase the work of LGBTQ+ mathematicians in all areas of combinatorics and related topics. To promote collaboration and sharing, talks will be aimed at a general combinatorial audience. The schedule includes ample breaks for discussion among participants.

The goal of QTMC is to bring visibility to an often-invisible minority within mathematics, and cultivate a sense of community among LGBTQ+ mathematicians. Research shows that queer and trans mathematicians are less likely to be out at work than their counterparts in the life sciences, physical sciences, or social sciences; and that retention rates for queer students in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) are lower than for their heterosexual peers. QTMC aims to address these disparities by offering LGBTQ+ mathematicians a safer space to share their research, network, and find collaborators, all in a safer space that promotes a sense of belonging in math. While the event is intended to celebrate and support LGBTQ+ mathematicians, allies are welcome to attend.

If you are interested in presenting at the conference, please submit your abstract by May 10, 2021 using the same e-mail address used to register here (please wait 24-48hrs after registering). https://portal.fields.utoronto.ca/submit-abstract
