3rd Nordic EWM Summer School for PhD Students in Mathematics
University of Turku, Finland, June 22.-27, 2009
The final program can be found HERE. A more detailed timetable can be found in your conference bag once you arrive and register with your name.

All the lectures plus the film on Wednesday eve will take place in the Quantum auditorium (building T7 in the CAMPUS MAP).

 The contributed papers will be allowed 20 minutes for presentation.

A number of well-established mathematicians from different countries will be main speakers in the summer school. They will give three mini-courses and a few more specialized lectures. Ample time will be allowed for participants to share ideas and make new contacts, and informal sessions facilitating such interaction will be encouraged.

The scientific program is planned in collaboration with the Scientific Committee of the European Mathematical Society (EMS). Invited speakers so far include (preliminary, changes possible):

Number theory, algebra and applications

All participants are strongly encouraged to submit contributions and to attend seminars where they will have an opportunity to present their results, research projects or intended research areas. Instructions can be found at Submissions. We will also have a poster session where you can present your results as a poster and give a short talk (5-10 minutes).

Besides the scientific program there will be an opportunity to meet professional mathematicians for discussions. Several social events will be held, including a get-together with sauna and sausage in the evening of Monday, June 22 (pick-up at 18:30 at the Catherdral), and an excursion and a reception for all participants in the evening of Thursday, June 25 (pick-up at 17:00 at the Cathedral).
