The organising committee is very happy to present the lectures as shown on the Woudschoten conference 2015. The fortieth Woudschoten Conference was held at the Woudschoten Conference Centre, Zeist, The Netherlands from 7-9 October 2015.

 At the reception of the Fortieth Woudschoten Conference, WSC chair Kees Oosterlee wanted to give a speech. Because of the late start of the reception he decided to replace his speech with a brief toast. See the originally planned speech

One-minute poster session: All participants were invited to present a poster concerning their research. Every presenter of a poster received a one-minute slot in the conference programme (in a plenary session) to attract the attention to his or her poster. See the PDF files the one-minute session.

The following posters were rated the best by a jury consisting of the keynote speakers under the leadingship of Willem Hunsdorfer:
