BBS Winter Term 2020/21

The PhD Research Seminar in Mathematics for Economics and Business ("Brown Bag Seminar") takes place on Wednesdays from 12:15 to 13:30.

Given the current situation, we are changing the seminars to online sessions. A direct link to the respective stream will be posted at each date. 

Schedule:

(12:00-12:15 Dial-in)
12:15-13:00 Talk
13:00-13:30 Discussion

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