Kurssin suorittaminen

To pass the seminar students should

  • attend at least 75% of the meetings during 3 years (i.e., 9 times out of 12 if the seminar meets twice/term)
  • give at least two presentations
    • a presentation after about two years of studies on the student's progress so far: the first half of the presentation would be on a general level (remember your audience) about that you have done so far, the other half about what your thesis will look like and also how your plan to finish the thesis looks like
    • a presentation on a chosen subject, e.g., the topic of an accepted conference article
  • new students should prepare one slide presenting themselves (name, supervisor, group, topic of PhD studies). Please make a pdf version of the slide, bring it along on a USB stick, or put it on the web beforehand
  • review papers and get reviews for own papers

A possibility to replace some of the obligatory requirements with some other tasks by agreement of the teachers.
