A conference proposal under the title Tropical Geometry that I submitted in collaboration with
has been approved by the
Centro Internacional de Encuentros Matematicos, Castro Urdiales, Spain.
The conference will most probably take place in Decemeber 2011. Please do check back for details!
Since last May, I am serving as Studiendekanin für Mathematik at our departmnet.
Last April, I have been appointed as Vertrauensdozentin of the
Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes
at the University of Bremen.
I was on a research leave at MSRI and UC Berkeley from Aug 2009 to March 2010.
In the fall, I co-organized the program on
Tropical Geometry at
MSRI, from January to March I was a visitor at the
UC Berkeley Math Department. My absence from the University of Bremen
was financed through a research grant of the

A half year program on Tropical Geometry at MSRI
proposed by Ilia Itenberg, Grigory
Mikhalkin, Bernd Sturmfels and myself has been approved for
the fall of 2009!

In the fall of 2006, I have spent 2 months at MSRI as a
research professor within the program
Computational Applications of Algebraic Topology.
While at MSRI, I co-organized a 1-day workshop on Tropical Geometry with Bernd Sturmfels. The result is a list of the top ten open problems in Tropical Geometry from an algebraic and combinatorial viewpoint. Have a look!
I was co-organizing a workshop at MSRI in August 2006:
Recent Developments in Arrangements and Configuration Spaces.
It was dedicated to
on the occasion of his 70th birthday.
Esther Yael Feichtner was born on August 9, 2006 in Zurich!
My graduate student Emanuele Delucchi has
defended his thesis at ETH Zürich in July 2006. Congratulations!
