This year, we are happy to announce presentations by Nicolas Bukowiecki (University of Basel), Matthias Röthlisberger (ETH Zurich) and Céline Portenier (University of Bern/University of Zurich). In addition, Master students from different Swiss Universities have the possibility to present the status of their thesis to small groups of listeners. Each round of talks will last about 10 minutes and the audience is invited to learn more about the different projects, ask questions, and give the students some tips in this informal setting. PhD students are invited to discuss their projects as well.
