The Graduate Seminar programme provides PhD students with the opportunity to communicate their progress with the group and to receive constructive feedback, support, and advice. For the preparation of the session the candidates will distribute a research paper one or two weeks in advance to the seminar participants. Additionally, the student will nominate two reviewers who will provide more focused and detailed feedback. In the seminar session, the most important aspects of the paper are summarized by the author to initiate an in-depth discussion of the work in progress.


This semester's graduate seminar is coordinated by Carl Schultz. Please contact Carl if there are any enquires about the programme or scheduling.


Students will nominate two reviewers approximately two weeks in advance, and will send their material to the reviewers one week in advance. The seminar schedule is given below.


This semester we will also be conducting Lightning Talks (a very nice suggestion from our substitute professor Tomi Kauppinen):

  • these will let other students, and the rest of the group, "catch up" on what each student is doing at the moment
  • each student will have a 3 minute slot to share their progress and challenges with the group
  • no slides
  • the group will then discuss and comment on the plans and challenges for an additional few minutes
  • all students are kindly requested to attend and present
