From April 12th-14th 2023 the SFB/TRR 109 will hold a "Young Investigators Workshop" in Weimar. The workshop is open to SFB members at the PhD and Post-Doc level only, and offers the opportunity for young investigators to discuss mathematics, careers, and other aspects of academic life in a relaxed, collegial atmosphere.
Over the 1.5 days of the workshop there will be a mixture of poster sessions, short talks, scientific and careers workshops, as well as time for networking. It will take place in beautiful Weimar, home to Goethe, Schiller and the fabulous Anna Amalia Library.
Attendees should bring with them a poster or a 5 minute presentation on their research or master's project. If bringing a powerpoint, please bring it on a laptop. A flipchart is availible.
Registration closed on April 3, 2023. (staff access)
