Posted 30 September 2013 by Beatrice Lugger

How to find a balance? How to deal with career and kids? Matthias Hagen from Weimar University, Germany, had the idea for this workshop: “Balance – How to develop a research career and a growing family”. Avi Widgerson, Nevanlinna Laureate, and about 70 participants attended this. Especially the young researchers have to deal with career, friends and family, time for your own. They are in their ‘rush hour of life’, as Matthias named it. The best contribution to the discussion... Read more

In his autobiographical book ‘Théorème vivant” (2012) he gave insights in the inner soul of a mathematician. Time to talk with him about science communication. He was so kind as to do so after the Tuesday’s panel discussion at the hlf13.... Read more
