- Please keep your presentation to around 35 minutes so that there is still some time for discussion.
- Keep in mind that you have a rather broad audience, with a mix of students and more experienced reseachers, and people from different disciplines. Don't assume too much, explain terms, avoid specialized jargon.
- Shortly introduce the speaker at the beginning of the seminar.
- Encourage everybody, in particular students, to ask questions. In Zoom, questions can be indicated through "raised hands" or posed directly in the chat. Try to keep an overview and call people individually. If there are students and/or women with questions, give them priority.
- Particularly for external speakers: get in touch with them prior to the seminar, organise chats with students and postdocs (this can also be done in Zoom), and organise dinner (post-Covid19). Ask other EvE groups that may be interested to participate.
