Student presentations

All PhD candidates are expected to present their research, either as a poster or an oral presentation, which is a great opportunity to get feedback from fellow PhD candidates and supervisors.

Each presentation session will be chaired by two PhD candidates, who will give a 5-minute introduction to the session topic at the beginning of their session. In addition, they are responsible to monitor the timing of the whole session. If you would like to be a session chair, please indicate this on the abstract submission form.

Duration of each talk will be 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions and discussion. A committee, consisting of both PhD candidates and supervisors, will give comments and feedback to each presenter.

Non-scientific session

Theme: How to become a more impactful scientist

Two main training foci:

Reseach leadership (how to impact your field)
Identify opportunities and lead the field forward – gaining perspective on your own research and awareness of its importance.

Research Outreach (how to impact society)
Conveying your research and its importance clearly, simply, and in a way that engages the public.

Expenses:

Travel and accommodation will be covered for all PhD candidates and supervisors. As we have limited cabins available, all PhDs will share a cabin with a fellow PhD candidate. Please indicate with whom you would like to share a cabin in the registration form. Depending on the number of registered participants, supervisors might also have to share a cabin.
