Weihnachtsworkshop on Geometry and Number Theory 2019

Once a year in the last week before Christmas the Karlsruher Weihnachtsworkshop takes place with talks from geometry and number theory.

The Weihnachtsworkshop 2019 will be from Wednesday, December 18 until Friday, December 20.
It will take place at KIT in Karlsruhe.
