7. Doctoral Student Conference in Stochastics


In autumn 2011 the seventh Doctoral Student Conference in Stochastics ("Doktorandentreffen Stochastik") will take place at the Ruhr-University Bochum. The conference is organized by and addressed to doctoral students of stochastics from Austrian, German and Swiss universities. The attendants will have the opportunity to outline their fields of research and results as well as to gain an overview of the area of work of other postgraduate students.

In addition there will be a poster session, in which doctoral students from natural and technical sciences may present their solved or unsolved stochastical problems to initiate a mutual discussion and give some insight in applications of stochastic methods.

Thus a central aspect of the conference will also be to network with other young scientists from stochastics and miscellaneous empirical sciences.


The participants will have the opportunity to present their areas of work in 20-minute talks. Depending on the number of attendants this activities may be split into two parallel series.

In this years conference for the fist time, there is the possibility for scientists of applied disciplines to introduce their stochastic related results on (maybe still unsolved) mathmatical problems.

Further information can be found here.

Since networking is an essential concern of the conference, besides talks and discussions about stochastics, social activities will be part of the meeting as well. Amongst others a guided tour through the city centre with a following possibility to spend the evening in Bochum's famous Bermuda3Eck is planned after the talks on Friday.


Registration-deadline is Monday, the 22th of August 2011. For detailed information about the registration procedure click here.
