Bern-Fribourg Graduate Seminar

This is a seminar aimed at Masters and PhD students from the universities of Fribourg and Bern. We meet weekly on Wednesdays from 17:15 to 18:00, alternating between the two cities.

Talks should be understandable for Master and PhD students from any field of Mathematics, better if introductory than at research level. We encourage everyone to give a talk about any mathematical topic that interests them.

The goal of this seminar is to have fun together, learn new maths in different fields and tighten links between the two universities, by providing a space for students to freely talk about their favourite topics in an informal environment. It is also a good occasion for masters students to get a better idea of what's going on in contemporary mathematics and, why not, to practice giving talks to a friendly audience. If you have any questions or want to be added to our mailing list, feel free to contact the organizers.
