Conferences and Seminars

"It's a great game of chess that's being playedall over the worldif
this is the world at all, you know. Oh, what fun it is! How I wish
I was one of them! I wouldn't mind being a Pawn, if only I might
jointhough of course I should like to be a Queen, best."

I organised 6 international conferences.
I was an invited (plenary) speaker at 17 conferences.
In total I actively participated in more than 50 international
conferences and gave about 100 seminars across the world.
For a complete list of conferences
I was involved in (as participant, speaker or organiser)
and seminars I gave see below.
Currently, I am involved in organising (jointly with P. Siegl)
an international CIRM conference
