about us

about

One afternoon, one topic, three speakers. That's the idea of our PhD-seminar, organised in Ghent for a general audience. The speakers explain things about the topic of that day while talking about their research. The sessions are followed by some drinks and/or a dinner.

Interested? Check below when the next session will be! If you’d like to give a talk, please contact us on phdseminarsugent@gmail.com.

the topics

Ranging from Algebra over Analysis to Geometry. The whole mathematical world!

the audience

The talks are intended for non-specialists. Everyone should be able to learn something.

The speakers

The talks are given by phds and postdocs, one from Ghent and two outsiders.

In mathematics, you don’t understand things. You just get used to them.

John von Neumann
