AWM-AMS Noether Lecture


The Noether Lecture is a distinguished lecture series that honours women "who have made fundamental and sustained contributions to the mathematical sciences".

The Association for Women in Mathematics established the annual lectures in 1980.
In 2013 it was renamed the AWM-AMS Noether Lecture and since 2015 is sponsored jointly with the American Mathematical Society.

It should not be confused with the International Mathematical Union sponsored ICM Emmy Noether lectures whose details can be found at THIS LINK.
