Teachers: Pascal Hersen, Ariel Lindner, Andrew Murray, Claire Ribrault and David Tareste
This course is intended to develop the student's ability to read and critically interpret papers from high quality journals. Through this exercise the students will be exposed to a large spectrum of interdisciplinary research domains and methodologies. This exercise is built of a series of seminars, each prepared by two students from different backgrounds, presenting in detail a research paper of their choice. The underlying hypothesis, background and the results is discussed in detail and the different techniques explained. In addition, the students are asked to suggest further experimental/modeling approaches with respect to their conclusions from the paper at stake.
- The articles (in PDF format) should be posted no later than one week before the presentation on the secured AIV moodle.
- All students participating in the course have to fill their comments, including the strong and weak points of the paper as well as points not well understood no later than three days before the presentation.
- The points raised in the students' feedbacks will then be addressed during the presentation.
- A short debriefing of the presenters by the AIV teachers will take place after the seminar.
