PhD Seminar on Modelling of Dynamical Systems and Data Analysis

The intention of this seminar is to bring together PhD, Diploma, Master and Bachelor students of the University Potsdam, and to give them the opportunity to discuss about the subject of their work. It should provide a good exercise to present topics of your research, and to broaden your view and understanding on different areas of science.

Every graduate physics student is invited to contribute a talk to the seminar. The basic language of the course will be English. However, the talks may partly also be delivered in German language.

The seminar talks should be comprehensible for graduate students working in different fields. They should explain the fundamental ideas, methods, and peculiarities of a given topic, rather than dealing with specialized issues or technical details, etc. Talks should be no longer than 30 minutes, not including discussion. Time is available for questions and discussion (15-30 minutes).

Room II.28.2.123 in the physics building at the Golm Campus every Wednesday

Past PhD workshops: 2006, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000
