Our seminars

Vienna Seminar of Financial Mathematics and Probability

This seminar is jointly organised by

Talks during the winter semester are held at the University of Vienna, Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz 9 or Kolingasse 14-16, 1090 Wien. Talks during the summer semester are held at TU Wien, Wiedner Hauptstraße 8, 1040 Wien, "Freihaus".

Talks will take place around once a month from 3:30pm - 6:00pm approximately. Precise location is available from the webpage of the VSMFP.


Vienna Probability Seminar (VPS)

This seminar is jointly organised by

Talks will take place on Wednesday afternoons every two weeks from 3:45pm - 6:00pm. More detailed information is available on the webpage of the VPS.


This seminar is currently organised by Marcin Lis and was initiated by Alexander Glazman, formerly part of this research group, and takes place Thursdays at 2pm. Because of its informal nature, NSIS tends to last a bit longer.

Budapest-Vienna Probability Seminar

This series of events is jointly organised by the community of probabilists -- in a very wide sense -- of Vienna (IST, TUW, UW) and Budapest (BME, ELTE, RI). The informal group of organisers consists (right now) of:

The events are held quasi-regularly, with one or two meetings per semester, consisting of three 50 minutes lectures. The location of the events will alternate between the two cities Budapest and Vienna. All are welcome!

The next meeting will take place on March 8, 2024 in Budapest. For more information please visit the seminar website.
