Seminars WS 2020/21

The IZN Seminar usually takes place every 2 weeks on Wednesdays 13:00-14:00 as an IZN Webinar, hosted on the University's server. Each seminar has an access code which is announced on the IZN mailing lists.

Each speaker (usually two on the day) has ca. 25 minutes to present their projects plus 5 minutes for questions. The talks are in English.

The audience may include students and colleagues who are non-experts on the subject of the talk, therefore the speaker should introduce the topic in general terms.

The speaker should provide a host who will briefly introduce the speaker and moderate the questions after the talk.

Group leaders: please arrange a speaker and get in contact with the IZN Administrator Dr. Otto Bräunling, who will include the booking on this page and distribute an announcement.
