    This conference will bring together board members of different national R-Ladies Groups with representatives of international R-Ladies Groups from Taiwan, Turkey and Morocco as well as female researchers from India and Egypt. Additionally, this venue will take the advantage to host the African Female Mathematicians venue as a pre-Conference venue, where participants from 50 African countries will participate.

    This venue will

    • bring female researchers and scientists together to discuss the importance of coding skills for research works in all academic disciplines as well as for decision making purposes in business and politics.
    • provide the floor to network and share experiences among the different R-Ladies groups, scientists and researchers.
