Scientists Meet Scientists – Wednesday Coffee Talk by Prof. Camilla Hollanti (TUM-IAS Hans Fischer Fellow; Aalto University) on private information retrieval


Prof. Ernst Rank and the TUM-IAS team invite the scientists of TUM and their guests for coffee each Wednesday! Just come over to the TUM-IAS after lunch between 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. and have a coffee with us, meet other scientists and listen from time to time to a short talk (10-15 mins) on a recent major TUM publication or issue – aimed specifically at a non-expert audience.

On May 23, 2018, TUM-IAS Hans Fischer Fellow Prof. Camilla Hollanti (Aalto University) will give a talk entitled “Private Information Retrieval”.
