Random discrete structures

March 20th - March 24th, 2023

Münster, Germany


The workshop centers around two topics:

  • Random graphs and stochastic geometry
  • Branching and mathematical biology
The aim is to provide an opportunity of exchange between the different groups and to attract young researchers to the field. For the latter group, a limited amount of funding is available to reimburse their expenses. If you want to apply for financial support, please send a CV together with a short motivation letter to Anita Kollwitz.
