BBS Summer Term 2018

The PhD Re­search Sem­inar in Mathem­at­ics for Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness ("Brown Bag Sem­inar") takes place on Wed­nes­days from 12:30 to 13:30 in sem­inar room D4.4.008 (Build­ing D4, En­trance A, Level 4).

The sem­inar is a forum where PhD stu­dents and postdocs present their re­search pro­jects; work in pro­gress is fully ok. Typ­ic­ally, each present­a­tion is fol­lowed up by a short dis­cus­sion. Moreover, some more senior fac­ulty mem­bers talk about their work.
