 Seminar Bremen - Hamburg - Kiel

Organizers: R. Farnsteiner, I. Penkov, I. Runkel, C. Schweigert.

Once a semester, mathematicians from Bremen, Hamburg and Kiel gather in Hamburg for an informal meeting in order to exchange mathematical ideas and allow young researchers to present their work to a wider audience.

Location: Geomatikum, Bundesstraße 55, Hamburg. How do I get there?
