Nachwuchsforscherinnen in Stochastik

Junior female researchers in probability

Berlin and Potsdam, 10-11 October 2013


Aim of the conference

The Graduate School "Stochastic analysis with applications in biology, finance and physics" and the Berlin Mathematical School (BMS) are organizing a two-day workshop "Junior female researchers in stochastics", which will take place in Berlin and Potsdam on 10-11 October, 2013.

The goal of the workshop is to offer junior female researchers in stochastics a platform to talk about their own research work and to get acquainted with important research topics presented by well-established female researchers. To cover various topics in probability and its applications, several invited talks are planned, as well as a number of contributed talks, which will be chosen by the organizing committee among the submitted abstracts.

Organizing committee:
Sylvie Roelly (Universität Potsdam), Noemi Kurt (TU Berlin), Zorana Grbac (TU Berlin, Paris 7).

Practical information

On Thursday October 10 the workshop will take place at the Universität Potsdam, am Neuen Palais (map of the campus). The mathematics building, house 8, can be localized on this map. The talks will be in room 59 (ground floor).
On Friday October 11 the talks will be held at the Technische Universität Berlin, Institut für Mathematik, room MA 041 (ground floor), building MA on this map.

Public transport in and between Berlin and Potsdam works in general very well. In order to travel from Berlin to Potsdam (or vice versa) you can buy a ticket for zones A,B and C which allows you to take any S-Bahn, Underground, Bus or Regional train between Berlin and Potsdam (including Schönefeld airport). A ticket valid for two hours costs 3.20 Euros, a ticket for a whole day costs 7.20. If you travel only inside Berlin (including Tegel airport) it is enough to buy a ticket for zones A and B, which costs 2.60 (2 hours) or 6.70 (whole day).
