Dinner 08 May

For dinner on the 8th of May, we are going to have pizza margherita from Unikat. Let us know if you want to join:

PhD Seminar (Summer Semester 2024)


  • We are trying to organize at least the first half of the talks soon. If you want to give a talk but have yet to express your interest, please get in touch with Andrea or Giacomo.
  • We invite you to join us for dinner right after the talk, where we can continue our discussions. If you would like to participate, you have two options: you can either bring your own food, or you can eat together with us (at a small cost) some food that will be delivered to the department (e.g., pizza).


The general theme of the seminar will be "(Co)homology Theories," and here's why:

  • We want to encourage participation from diverse research groups, inviting speakers to choose topics they are experts in or passionate about.
  • Freedom for Speakers: We invite you to present any cohomology theory (or homology theory) of your choice. Talks can range from introductory presentations to applications, whether in computation, comparison with other cohomology theories, or theorems derived from them.
  • Freedom for Audience: Unlike traditional seminars where talks are interconnected, our format allows each presentation to stand independently, meaning that even if you miss a talk, you can still fully engage with and understand the following ones.

General Information

  • Talks should last around 45-60 minutes, leaving ample time for discussions and elucidations at the board, and aim to be a gentle introduction to the topic.
  • This gathering is also the perfect opportunity to ask questions non-directly related to mathematics, such as suggestions for conferences, how to get access to resources offered by the university, how to get a decent sleep schedule, etc.

We're thrilled about this seminar and the opportunity to share ideas and time.

Time and place

  • On Wednesdays at 18.00 (sharp, not 18.15) in room M311.
