Graduate Student Meeting (13 December 2017)

There will be a Graduate Student Meeting in the morning before the Regional Meeting. In the Graduate Meeting, there will be two lectures introducing the topics of the talks of the regional meeting to a general mathematical audience. Furthermore, PhD students have the opportunity to give talks about their PhD projects. We are still looking for people interested to speak (depending on the number of talks, duration will be between 20 and 30 minutes). There are funds available to support your travel/accommodation. For funding, preference will be given to those students that give talks, but likely we will also have some funds to support participants.

If you are interested to give such a talk, or simply to participate, please write an email to one of the organisers (see below).

Workshop Speakers (13-15 December):


Gandalf Lechner,

Mathew Pugh,
