DIAMANT/EIDMA Symposium May 2008


On 29 and 30 May 2008 the DIAMANT/EIDMA Symposium will be held at Kasteel Oud-Poelgeest.

The invited speakers are: Mai Gehrke (RU Nijmegen), Thomas Hales (University of Pittsburgh), Dietrich Notbohm (VU Amsterdam), and DIAMANT-postdocs Peter Csorba (TU Eindhoven), Nicole Immorlica (CWI Amsterdam), and Lenny Taelman (Leiden). We encourage Ph.D. students to propose talks for the remaining time slots.
