Journée Georges de Rham

The Journée Georges de Rham has been introduced in 1991 by the Troisième cycle Romand de mathematiques and usually takes place at EPF Lausanne. It convenes mathematicians not only of the CUSO universities, but also from the whole of Switzerland and from abroad and stimulates interaction between professors, postdocs and PhD students. The organisers invite two speakers of international reputation who present their vision of contemporary mathematics and of future developments. A particular aim is to offer doctoral students a modern high class perspective of mathematical sciences and to establish contacts on an international level and with other research groups.
