[UL] Mental health awareness days (November 2-4, 2021)

Working in the academic environment can be quite stressful and we shouldn’t forget to also take care of our mental well-being. The Leipzig University in cooperation with HIGRADE graduate school and yDiv is organizing a digital theme week that is aimed at researchers at all career levels and offers different formats, e.g. short activating morning sessions and academic exchange.

You find the detailed programme and access links here (all events in English, no registration needed): https://www.uni-leipzig.de/en/event-detail/artikel/mental-health-awareness-days-2021-11-02/

[BEAM] ATM: How we can model and use symmetry (30.-31.3.2022)

After some motivation and first examples, we look at groups systematically and explore the mathematical language to study them. There will be exercises to work on and we discuss solutions (even if incomplete). One of the goals is to understand the symmetry of regular n-gons and to really get in touch with mathematical reasoning. And of course we want to discuss where symmetry might play a role in your work!

lecturer: Prof. Rebecca Waldecke

Please contact Imme Sakwa-Waltz in case you plan to join this ATM!
