Guest Lectures

You are cordially invited to participate in guest lectures by well-known scientists from Germany and abroad.

The guest lectures usually take place every thursday (during the semester) as part of our colloquium from 12:00 to 13:30, unless otherwise stated. The room can be taken from the information on the guest lectures.
