PhD Day 2018 - Announcement

25 April 2018
at Haus der Wissenschaft in Bremen
Sandstrasse 4/5, 28195 Bremen (see map)


For presenting your work, you can choose from three different formats:
  1. Talk (10 minutes talk, 5 minutes discussion)
  2. Speed talk (5 minutes talk, 5 minutes discussion; applicable only if you are within the first 6 months of your PhD)
  3. Pitch & Poster (You will prepare a poster plus 1-2 PowerPoint slides, on which you try to raise interest for your poster in the following poster session)

The aim of the presentations is to let the other PhD students know what you do. Therefore, we ask you to design your presentations in a way that they are easy to be followed for people from other disciplines. This is certainly challenging, but a good opportunity to practice your public speaking skills. The well-intentioned audience will provide written feedback for you and the best presentation will be awarded.
For students who just recently started their PhD, a speed talk might be a good way to give people an idea about the outline of your project. Please note that speed talks are aimed at those who are in the first 6 months of their PhD project only.
