Conference Booklet


Preliminary Schedule

The event starts with a Pizza Night on June 25 to allow the participants from Barcelona and Berlin to get know each other.

Each day of the event starts with a 50 min plenary talk. This is then followed by 20 min talks by other speakers.

The talks are interspersed by Coffee Breaks to allow the students a break and an opportunity to socialize.

We also provide lunch to the registered participants in the afternoon.

On Thursday, there will be a session of “elevator talks”. Elevator talks are 3-5 min long talks to introduce one of your topics of interest in a casual and catchy way (slides with drawing and such are encouraged). In our experience it is a great conversation starter that will wonderfully lead into the social event. The exact duration will be determined when everyone has registered. Also, note that even if you are giving a regular talk, you can present one of your other interests in an elevator talk.

The event concludes on Friday with the participants joining in the MATH+ Friday which is the bi-weekly colloquium of the MATH+ community with world-wide renowned speakers.
