Doctoral Seminars

IRSS Bruxelles Woluwe

Dear colleagues,

The IRSS seminars are getting a new look! The new academic year, along with positive dynamics of change within the Institute, are opportunities to revitalise our seminars. Here is the news:

1) From January 2020, the seminars will be reorganised on Wednesdays between 12:45 and 13h45, we will ensure that they do not conflict with other meetings and language courses.

2) The time of the oral presentations will be maximum 25 minutes in order to exercise our skills to deliver a clear and short message in a scientific presentation format, as is expected in a congress. Until December 2019, you will have the guarantee that the oral presentation will take place between 12:00 and 12:30, with time for questions and exchanges between 12:30 and 13:00. Then from January 2020, the presentation time will be between 12:45 and 13:15, with a time of questions and exchanges between 13:15 and 13:45.

3) From 2020, we will organise before each seminar a discussion table for PhD students (and future PhD students) which will be chaired by the new President of the doctoral school, Professor Sandy Tubeuf. Each PhD student will have the opportunity to talk about their thesis, progress, strengths and difficulties. This discussion table will be organised before each seminar between 12:00 and 12:45 and will be followed by the traditional seminar between 12:45 and 13:45. These discussion tables will also allow us to identify the needs of PhD students (courses, training, methodology, etc.) and to organise workshops accordingly.

4) A "Posters Morning" activity will be organised in April / May 2020. All PhD students will be invited to present a poster (an old poster already presented at a congress or a new one). A jury composed of several Professors will be present and the best poster will receive a prize (to be defined between 50 and 100 euros) and a certificate !

5) We want to give you the opportunity to podcast (record) your presentations during seminars. These recordings will only be used internally and allow you to view your presentation for further improvement and to share it with people who have not had the opportunity to attend your seminar.

6) Finally, we remind you that the participation of PhD students (like other researchers and academics) is strongly encouraged to show support for others, as well as learn more about the research happening at IRSS. In addition, giving oral presentations at IRSS seminars and at the doctoral day (03/12/19) is desirable and necessary for your doctoral training credits.
