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 a unique 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 presentations are in English.

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.

Information for speakers

The webinar 'moderator' will help the speakers prepare for their talks and pass the 'presenter' function to the relevant speaker.

A brief introduction to the functions will be given beforehand.

The presentation is 'shared' from your computer. Tip: to restrict a PowerPoint presentation to one window instead of filling the screen: 'Slide Show' tab > 'Show Type': 'Browsed by an individual (window)'.

Use the Chrome browser if possible. Firefox and Safari offer limited screen sharing options (screen only, not application windows).

Headsets provide the best sound quality for the listeners - Macs must use one with a USB connection.

The cameras of only the moderators and presenters can be activated. There are no attendees' cameras active during the webinar, with only a list of participants' names visible. Questions are sometimes posted in the Chat window, so keep this panel open.

The Department of Neurobiology in INF366 offers a room for hosting webinars providing headset, extra monitor, high-speed network and  technical assistance. Use of this room will be offered in advance. The speakers should bring their own laptops but laptops can be provided.

Presentations from home are not recommended as usually the upload speed is only 10% that of the download speed. Educational and scientific institutions usually have high speed in both directions. Static presentations (no page build-up or videos) can be uploaded to the Uni server to ensure a smooth presentation.

In case of questions, please contact
