About the conference:

The conference will be a great opportunity for participants to present their work and gain experience giving a talk in a formal setting. Due to the fact that the participants are students, this will be a friendly environment to attend a conference for the first time. The event will bring together PhD students from different universities, giving them the chance to broaden their horizons and see what other students are working on. Furthermore, the conference will give students who are thinking about starting a PhD in mathematics a unique insight into what doing a PhD is like.

There will be three plenary talks, six student talks and a poster session. Refreshments, including lunch, shall be provided and we will go to dinner together afterwards. To register, please fill out this form .
