Stochastics Seminar Heidelberg-Mannheim

The Heidelberg-Mannheim Stochastics Seminar is a biweekly seminar alternating between the Universities in Heidelberg and Mannheim. At each occasion there is an invited talk and a talk of a local PhD students. Once a month additionally the internal PhD seminar takes place: organized by the PhD students from Heidelberg and Mannheim an extra topic (or key skill event) is presented. Coordinator of the seminar is Mehmet Madensoy.
