This two-day workshop will consist of various talks given by prominent female mathematicians on topics of new developments in the role of holomorphic differentials on Riemann surfaces. These will be appropriate for graduate students, post-docs, and researchers in areas related to the program.   This workshop is open to all mathematicians.
