Organizers: Steering committee SMS, UniFr math graduate students, and Prof. Enrico Le Donne (UniFr)


The Swiss Mathematical Society invites graduate students in mathematics from Swiss Universities, as well as recent postdocs, to a special one-day event offering a platform for presentations, discussions, and exchange of experiences.

** The event will take place in a room that allows to keep distance between participants.


Participants are kindly asked to register by email (see contact above), indicating if they wish to give a talk and/or prepare a poster.

Extended Deadline: May 6


The workshop will take place in the campus of the mathematics department of the University of Fribourg. The venue is the room 2.52 (PER 08 in the map), which is inside the Department of Physics of the Universtiy of Fribourg.
