Special Colloquium Day in honor of Bernd Sturmfels' 60th birthday

This afternoon is dedicated to Bernd Sturmfels on occasion of his 60th birthday. We will celebrate Bernd's birthday with colloquium talks by Hannah Markwig (Tübingen) and Günter M. Ziegler (FU Berlin).

The party starts already earlier with a 60th birthday special of the John Conway Spirited Seminar Series at the Syed Babar Ali School of Science and Engineering, LUMS, Pakistan ( see information).

 

As we have reached the maximum number of on-site participants, registration only for online participation.
