About the Arbeitsgemeinschaft

The Arbeitsgemeinschaft is a series of meetings in Oberwolfach taking place each year in spring and fall. The topic of the next meeting is chosen by democratic vote. The stay at Oberwolfach is free. The Arbeitsgemeinschaft (study group) mainly addresses to non-specialists who want to broaden their outlook on mathematics and to junior mathematicians who wish to enter a field for future research. Experts are also welcome. The idea is “learning by doing” – similar to the Seminaire Bourbaki. Participants have to volunteer for one of the lectures described in the program of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft. After the deadline for application the organizers choose the actual speakers to give them enough time to understand the subject and to prepare for their lectures.

The MFO is grateful to Prof. Dr. Gerd Faltings (MPI Bonn), Prof. Dr. Martin Hairer (London), and Prof. Dr. Andreas Thom (Dresden) who lead the schedule of Arbeitsgemeinschaften at Oberwolfach.


Applications for participation should be adressed to the director by email to prior to the deadline. They should include:

  • full name and postal address
  • first choice for a talk: no. X, title
  • second choice for a talk: no. Y, title
  • third choice for a talk: no. Z, title
  • CV and publication list

In order to indicate which talk in the respective program you are willing to give it is enough to give the number and the title of the talk according to the program. CV and publication list are not obligatory for persons who have been at Oberwolfach several times already. You will be informed shortly after the deadline if your participation is possible and whether you have been chosen to give one of the lectures.
