DMV 2015: Jahrestagung der Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung
Hamburg, Germany
21-25 September 2015
(with satellite workshops on 20 & 21 September)


The 2015 annual meeting of the Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung (DMV)
will be hosted by the Department of Mathematics of the University of
Hamburg from 21 to 25 September 2015. The organisers collaborated with the
Dansk Matematisk Forening during the composition of the scientific
programme; Danish-German research collaboration in mathematics is one of
the special themes of this meeting.

Keynote speakers: Joergen Ellegaard Andersen (Denmark), Kathrin Bringmann
(Germany), Alessandra Carbone (France), Fernando Coda Marques (Brazil),
Charles M. Elliott (England), Peter Keevash (England), Bjoern Sandstede
(U.S.A.), Herbert Spohn (Germany), Simon Thomas (U.S.A.), Karen Vogtmann
(England & U.S.A.).

Satellite workshops (20 & 21 September 2015): "Current Trends in Stochastic
Analysis and Related Topics", "Generalized Baire Space", "History of
Mathematics", and "Trends in Proof Theory".

** Call for Proposals of Mini-Symposia **

The scientific programme of the annual meetings of the DMV is partially
formed by the participants in the form of a large number of minisymposia. A
minisymposium is a coordinated meeting consisting of research presentations
on a particular topic of current research interest. It is organized by one
or two active researchers from the field: the organizers of the symposium
are responsible for providing a list of speakers to the organizers of the
conference. The speakers could be invited by the symposium organizers or
attracted via a call for papers.

Minisymposia are scheduled during the main part of the conference,
typically over one or two days; they can last between 2 and 6 hours (4 to
12 talks); all speakers and organizers of a minisymposium have to be
registered participants of the conference and have to pay the registration
fee. Minisymposia do not receive any funding from the conference.

Minisymposia can be proposed between 15 October 2014 and 15 January 2015.
The programme committee intends to make a decision about acceptance of
proposals within four weeks of receipt of the proposal (so, submitting
early may give the advantage of having an early decision about acceptance).

The programme committee cordially invites all researchers to propose
minisymposia in their research areas. A proposal has to be submitted via
the submission page:


Select the track "Proposals for Minisymposia" and use the fields "Author 1"
(and "Author 2") for the organizer(s) of the minisymposium. Use the field
"Abstract" to provide the following information:

 (*) Description of the research area and motivation for the minisymposium.

 (*) Intended duration of the mini-symposium (two, three, four, five or six

 (*) List of potential speakers (it helps if some or all of the speakers
have confirmed that they will participate, but this is not required)

Ignore the field "Upload Paper" by clicking the box "Abstract Only", and
finally click the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page.

International minisymposia (e.g., co-organised by a German and an
international organiser) are particularly encouraged. Due to the
cooperation with the Dansk Matematisk Forening, we would like to see
Danish-German collaborations in the organisation of minisymposia.
