The schedule of the seminar will follow below. We will start Monday 20th!

Interested MSc students should (have) come to the first meeting. The seminar is still open for new participants.

English is the preferred language of presentation. There will be presentations about the current work in the research group as well as a thematic emphasis on recent algorithmic publications (e.g. RECOMB)
