The New PhD Science Day for the summer semester 2021 is planned on June 17, 2021, from 2 pm - 5 pm, as an online event.

Please prepare a presentation of 15-20 minutes length that includes the following:

  • Preliminary results and achievements (e.g. adapting existing methods to your own project counts as a result)
  • Future plans and experiments in your project
  • Impact that your project could have in the context of the doctoral school (exploring new theories, connecting research fields, ...) or for general society
  • Timeplan of your PhD (1 slide)

Ideally, preliminary results and future plans should take up about half of your presentation each.
