PhD Seminars

The PhD seminars are informal meetings, organized by the PhD students in Mathematics of Genova. Our main purpose is to present our research activities, or other topics which we are interested in, to other mathematicians who are far from our field of expertise. They are dedicated to all interested PhD, Postdoc, and Master students.

The meetings take place on Thursday from 16:00 to 17:00 (usually every two weeks). If you would like to give a talk, please enter your name in the following table.

Booking Sheet

The seminars are currently also streamed on Microsoft Teams only for UniGe students/staff.
