There will be several events during the conference.

  • Get together: On Sunday evening we want to give participants the possibility to get to know each other. We will set out into the city to get drinks. First year participants are especially welcome.
  • Lightning talks: A round of lightening talks (3min) given by participants will take place on Monday afternoon.
  • Reception & Pizza: On Monday evening there will be a reception with pizza.
  • Mentor Network Breakfast: We invite all participants of an underrepresented gender in mathematics (e.g., cis-women, transgender, nonbinary and other gender minorities) to an informal discussion over breakfast hosted by the OA Mentor Network.
  • Excursion: There will be an excursion on Tuesday afternoon. Detailed descriptions of the excursions will be announced later in the conference booklet.
  • Conference Dinner: The conference dinner will take place on Wednesday evening.
  • Ask Anything Sessions: A new initiative in the 2022 edition of YMC*A. This is your chance to post that question you always wanted to ask - we are almost sure there will be an expert present at the conference.
  • Panel discussion on "Early Career Advise and Issues of Equity": A panel of established researchers will answer questions about their life and career as a mathematician and discuss issues of equity in mathematics.
