MPIM Lecture Hall

The Oberseminar is a very long running seminar at MPI (‘Ober‘ standing for 'upper'). Its idea is that the guests of the MPI speak in this seminar (hopefully early in their stay) and get the chance to explain their work to the other guests.

This often leads to further mathematical interaction, and in any case it is very interesting to know what one's colleagues are working on.

This implies two things:

  1. When you speak at the Oberseminar you should try to make sure that your talk is understandable and interesting to everyone, not just to the people in the same field. (We have many specialized seminars where you can present your work at a more technical level.)
  2. Please always attend the Oberseminar, even if the title of the talk seems technical, because you know that the speaker is going to do a good job. The only reason for absence is that the talk is in your field and thus will be too easy for you.

We hope to see you at the Oberseminar!
