The MFO has three regular scientific publications: Oberwolfach Reports (OWR), Oberwolfach Seminars (OWS), and Oberwolfach Preprints (OWP). In addition the MFO publishes the Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach addressed to the general public. Moreover there is an annual report and some further publications.

The MFO supports the idea of open access. Hence all publications are freely available on our website, with the exception of the book series Oberwolfach Seminars from Birkhäuser.

Oberwolfach Reports

The Oberwolfach Reports (OWR) is a serial containing official reports with extended abstracts of all talks of every Workshop in Oberwolfach. OWR is published in cooperation with EMS Press. Interested libraries or institutes can subscribe to OWR on a non-profit basis or can make exchange arrangements with their institute publications.  [more]

Oberwolfach Seminars

The book series Oberwolfach Seminars (OWS) is published in cooperation with Birkhäuser. In this series, the material of the Oberwolfach Seminars is made available to an even larger audience.  [more]

Oberwolfach Preprints

The Oberwolfach Preprints (OWP) mainly contain research results related to a longer stay in Oberwolfach. In particular, this concerns the Oberwolfach Research Fellows (respectively the former Research in Pairs program) and the Oberwolfach Leibniz Fellows, but this can also include an Oberwolfach Lecture, for example.  [more]


Snapshots of modern mathematics from Oberwolfach explain mathematical problems and ideas in an accessible and understandable way. They provide exciting insights into current topics of the mathematical community for everyone who is interested in modern mathematics. [more]

Annual Reports

Starting with the year 2005, the MFO also publishes an annual report containing information not only on the annual scientific program, but also on other activities and on the yearly budget.  [more]

Further Publications

Further publications are e.g. the Festschrift of the 75th anniversary of the MFO in 2019.  [more]
