PhD Students Seminars

Seminars are given by PhD Students. The Seminars are held in English in Prof. Waclaw Gajewski’s auditorium (Hall E). The Seminars are open and all are welcome to attend. We meet every other Thursday.

Duration: up to 20 minutes of presentation, and 5 minutes of discussion. Usually, two people present at a given meeting.

After the end of the general discussion, all doctoral students are asked to stay in the room and continue discussions with the speakers (up to 20 minutes).
