Intended participants and audience
As a part of the MSc project, it is obligatory for students
to participate in the monthly "MSc-Workshops" (werkbesprekingen)
and in the Colloquia Sessions, held on Wednesdays and Fridays. Of
course, all other people are also welcome to
attend the colloquia.
This holds for all students, including the students that have an MSc project outside the university. Note that only the so-called literature, introductory and final colloquia are monitored in this respect.
Time and location
The MSc Workshops are normally organized in the morning of the last Friday of the month (no Workshops in July and August). Only the Workshop in December is planned earlier, for 2012 on Friday, December 14. Contact Esther de Booij if you want to give a presentation at one of the next workshops. Students are advised to plan their workshop presentations quite early, due to the busy schedule.
The colloquia will be organized on a weekly basis on Wednesday or Friday afternoon from 14h to 15h in the Mechanical Engineering building as announced on the DCSC homepage.
Two speakers per colloquium
As a rule, there will be two speakers (MSc students) per colloquium.
The time allotment for each presentation is 30 minutes including at least 5 minutes for questions or comments. Please be certain that the length of your presentation does not exceed the allotted time.
What to do if you want to give a presentation?
You can contact me if you would like to give a presentation at a certain date. Please consult your supervisor(s) first so as to be sure that she, he or they will be able to attend your presentation. Moreover, be sure that you have first checked the agenda of events (including the MSc colloquia) on the DCSC homepage to find out if the desired date is still available. If we have agreed on a certain date and time, you are requested to send me and Kitty Dukker (DCSC secretary) an e-mail with the title of the presentation, a brief abstract of the presentation, the name(s), initials, titles, affiliations and e-mail address(es) of your supervisor(s), and the type of presentation (e.g. literature colloquium, introductory colloquium). Finally, all speakers should be present 15 minutes before the start of the colloquium regardless of who speaks first. This is to allow for an audio/visual check and an easy transition between speakers.
English or Dutch?
The presentations have to be delivered in English and all speakers are strongly encouraged to use English text on their slides.
As a rule, the presentations will be evaluated after the
colloquium in order to provide the speakers with useful feedback.
This is done in a small group headed and composed by the
supervisor(s) of the speaker(s). Such an evaluation may include the
award of marks (depending on the particular MSc program in which the
Who is in chair?
The colloquia will be chaired by one of the supervisors of the speakers. I will contact her/him a few days before the colloquium.
If you need technical assistance (laptop, beamer, etc.), please contact the DCSC secretariat.
