Student Assignment Deadline January 31st!
Participating students are required to complete two assignments prior to workshop attendance:
1. A PhD report following the Workshop Template [doc]
The aim of the PhD report is to provide sufficient insights for the other group members to give feedback and to discuss issues related to your overall research project as well as its progress. The report should provide details of your research project including: the background and motivation for the research, research questions, research approach, and current and future research activities
2. A paper (research proposal for new PhD students)
Each student is also encouraged to provide a paper they are currently working on. This paper could be a paper already submitted to a conference/journal or a paper that is still in progress. When submitting the paper, please clearly provide a short description at the beginning of the paper specifying: the aim for the paper (e.g. a revision for a journal), any concerns/questions you have about the paper, the sections you would like the group to focus on most.
The completed report and paper should be e-mailed to the members of your working group with a cc to matavirer at gmail.com by the assignment deadline.
You are required to review in advance the contribution of all the other students in your working group in order to provide feedback. Each student will also be assigned as the main discussant of one of the other students' work. Thus, this student will be responsible for providing extensive comments for the assigned report and paper. Working group chairs (faculty) will be responsible for keeping track of time and managing the discussions. Details of this will be distributed along with the reports and papers within the respective working groups prior to the workshop.
During the group sessions, approximately one hour will be reserved for each student. Students should be prepared to provide a short presentation (5-10 minutes) of their work summarizing the key points of their research. The remainder of the time should be spent on discussion of the report and paper and the students’ PhD research including the discussion items identified by the student in their contributions.
