- Focus your talks on one single core topic and plan for 20-30 minutes without questions. However try to stimulate questions and discussions with your slides! There is no problem to present unfinished work. I would actually encourage this, to get early feedback on your ideas!
- It is expected that everybody attends the presentations! Therefore, it is of key importance to include sufficient background material that everyone can really follow the details of your talk! In particular, introduce basics about the key methods and tools you have been using. The audience is encouraged to interrupt, whenever things start getting obscure!
- The presentation schedule is found here. Please enter your name and topic in the time slot that suits you! All time slots should be occupied! Although we can use these time slots for conference rehearsal presentations too, I would recommend scheduling your talks (at least one month) before you actually SUBMIT your papers, to get good feedback for finalizing the manuscripts.
- For all students in the new PhD curriculum, this activity will count as the “Privatissimum” required by the curriculum, but it is different from the “DissertantInnen-Seminar” which is also required in the second year of the new currciculum.
- We want to reinforce the importance of both offering your own presentations AND participating in the discussion of presentations made by colleagues. We do have a large diversity of research topics at SPSC lab which sometimes makes this appear difficult, but you should see this as a significant added value to your education in the long run.
