PhD Seminar

The context

This bimonthly seminar was born out of the desire to create a meeting place for doctoral students and researchers. The presentation is followed by a time of discussion, the objective of which is to allow PhD students to get feedback from their colleagues on the work they have done, to share their doubts and to discuss the results of their research. There are two seminar formats :

  • A “conference training” format, which corresponds to what was done in the majority of sessions last year. The idea is to practice presenting a well-developed piece of work before attending a conference. The presentation can last between 15 and 25 minutes, depending on the format of the conference you’re preparing. We will try to systematically have a discussant read a working paper (or detailed slides if you haven’t written a paper yet) beforehand and open the discussion after the presentation.
  • A “brainstorming” format, to present ideas that are not yet fully developed. The idea is to put less pressure on the formalization and timing of the presentation and allow on-the-fly questions. This format is more about presenting leads, preliminary intuitions, and points of difficulty where we need help… For this format, the minimum requirement is a one-page abstract, to be sent before the seminar. Longer research proposals, with detailed methods and literature review sections are also welcome.
