Oberwolfach Lectures

A highlight of the annual meeting of the Gesellschaft für Mathematische Forschung traditionally taking place in October is the "Oberwolfach Lecture". Visitors are welcome, due to the limited seating capacity please make a reservation two weeks in advance of the lecture (phone: 07834-979-0, email: admin@mfo.de).

Some of the lectures have been recorded on video and for some also a written version was published in our annual report. If available, you will find the videofiles and the pdf below.
