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.
