Guidelines for speakers
- Please keep your presentation to a maximum of 45 minutes so that there is enough 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.
Guidelines for hosts
- Shortly introduce the speaker at the beginning of the seminar.
- Encourage everybody to ask questions. Questions by students should be given priority.
- Particularly for external speakers: get in touch with them prior to the seminar, organise chats with students and postdocs, and organise a dinner. Ask other EvE groups that may be interested to participate.
