Sage Days 103 : Women in sage (2019)
August 7-9, 2019 St. Louis, MO
These Sage days are a special event for women* who develop in SageMath or wish to learn Sage. They will include introduction presentations, training, and team work on specific projects. There is no initial knowledge needed, everyone is welcome whether they are new Sage learners or Sage expert. We believe in diversity in backgrounds and experiences.
*This event is primarily targeted at women as to help form a team of women developers and to reduce the gap between men and women developers in Sage Math in particular and in open scientific software in general. It is for all who self identify as a woman.
R. Lauren Miller is an adjunct at Fontbonne University. She has been working in sage since 2016.
Projects and Progress
Surfaces group: Lines on degree 3 del Pezzo surfaces. Can we find them? Code exists that will, given time, find the lines on a given cubic.
Crypto Group: Improving the cryptography functionality and documentation. We will be editing this page on the Wiki, amongst other things. Feel free to start contributing to the page before you arrive at Sage Days (or even if you're not coming but you have something you are interested in contributing. This page is linked to from the Sage Interactions page: https://wiki.sagemath.org/interact/
Team Believe the Hype!: (Computing the identity components of Sato-Tate groups for trinomial hyperelliptic curves)
The workshop will take place in St. Louis, MO.
Lodging will be shared Air BNBs or Dorms.
How to come? The closest airport is St. Louis Lambert International Airport. From there, you can take a Lyft.
The event will be workshop style.
We will start the week by some introduction presentations and tutorials especially targeted at those who don't know much Sage. Then each project leader will present their mathematical and / or Sage project to the group. After that we will split into groups and work together on our projects. Groups can then share what they've accomplished and their next goals at the end of each day.
Due June 15th. People will be notified by June 30th on acceptance.
