We invite all women and non-binary mathematicians to tell us about themselves and participate in our weekly social media campaign called #PortraitOfAMathematician. Once a week, we introduce a mathematician from an Austrian University or from Austria on our social media channels with a short portrait.

Do you want to be featured? Fill out the following Jotform here, your portrait will appear on LinkedIn and Twitter! 

In case of questions, please contact corinna dot perchtold snail jku dot at.

Wikipedia Project

We want to increase the visibility of women mathematicians by writing, improving and/or translating Wikipedia articles about them. This is inspired by the project Women in Red.

We organize a (virtual) writing circle for our volunteer authors to meet every other month. There we discuss how to become a successful Wikipedia editor and how to research for articles. All necessary skills can be learned there and you are free to choose how much time you want to contribute!

You are interested in joining the project? Reach out to alexandra dot edletzberger snail univie dot ac dot at

Call for suggestions: You want to suggest a woman mathematician who should have a Wikipedia article our whose article needs an edit or a translation? Then tell us about her in this form.

Our authors will consider the suggestions depending on their capacity and expertise.


In the mentoring program, more experienced researchers serve as mentors for small groups of mentees. The group, consisting of one mentor and up to four mentees, has regular meetings to discuss questions regarding job, career, and routine. In addition, the program includes meetings of people with various career paths.

Please contact Anastasia Molchanova ( if you have any questions.

Tea times: After-work networking meetings

To encourage networking among women and non-binary mathematicians in a relaxed atmosphere, we organize tea time events thrice a year.

Join our next virtual Tea Time event for women and non-binary mathematicians on March 28, at 16:00! We look forward to meeting you to have a chat, share experiences, ask for help or just help you connect with other like-minded people. We will have a suggested topic for discussion for each event to get the conversations rolling. However, the participants are free to chat about whatever they like.

Stay tunded - more virtual editions (where we provide break-out rooms for discussions in smaller groups) and in-person meetings in different cities will come!

Please subscribe to our mailing list to receive all infos about the location/the zoom link of the next tea time event.

We also organize an annual “PhD tea time”, which is open to all genders. This event will be held every October with the aim of bringing young researchers together.

A²WiM Annual Conference

The Austrian Day of Women in Mathematics happens every February. The fouth edition will take place in Linz on February 22, 2024 - register now! All details and the schedule can be found on the conference's website here.

The aim of this event is to bring together women mathematicians in Austria and highlight their achievements.

We encourage people of all genders to attend this event!

In 2021, 2022 and 2023, the conference took place virtually, check out the conference's websites here, here and here


Check out our interviews with successful women in mathematics in Austria! The interviews are also published in the International Mathematical News.


In our Spotlight program we discuss with women mathematicians how they overcame particular hurdles. Our first topic is Moving for work, the second one is From Math to application, the third one is about Grant application. Then we discussed Kids and career, Women mathematicians in leading positions and lastly Mathematics in industry.
