Annual Workshop 2018, December 6-7

Dec 06, 2018 - Dec 07, 2018

Jahrestagung des Graduiertenkollegs ''Facets of Complexity'' 2018.


Every student gives a short presentation (30 min):

  • Who am I, where do I come from, my hobbies, etc. (5 min)
  • Scientific talk (20 min): What did I do for my M.Sc. thesis? Or: What do I want to do for my Ph.D. thesis?
  • Questions (5 min)

Every work group gives a short presentation of the topics and people who are involved. (10 min)

The conference room has a projector with a laptop and a flipchart, but no blackboard. Alternatively, the speakers can bring their own laptop to project their presentation.
