Survey Lecture „UnRAVeL – Behind the Scenes“

  UnRAVeL-Ringvorlesung Announcement image Copyright: © UnRAVeL

Part of the programme of the research training group UnRAVeL is a series of introductory lectures on the topics of „randomness“ and „uncertainty“ in UnRAVeL’s research thrusts algorithms and complexity, verification, logic and languages, and their application scenarios. Each lecture is delivered by one of the researchers involved in UnRAVeL. The main aim is to provide doctoral researchers as well as master students a broad overview of the subjects of UnRAVeL.

This year, 12 UnRAVeL professors will answer the following questions, based on one of their recent scientific results:

  • How did you get to this result?
  • How did you come up with certain key ideas?
  • How did you cope with obstacles on the way? Which ideas you had did not work out?

Following these talks, PhD students will give an informal summary of their doctoral studies within UnRAVeL.

All interested doctoral researchers and master students are invited to attend the UnRAVeL lecture series 2021 and engage in discussions with researchers and doctoral students.

The talks of the UnRAVeL survey lecture 2021 will be given via Zoom every Thursday from 16:30 to 18:00:
