Teachers : Pascal Hersen, Ariel Lindner, Andrew Murray, Claire Ribrault and David Tareste
This series of seminars is split into two equal parts. (i) The students present a detailed interdisciplinary research project (this can be the subject of their PhD proposal) with theoretical/modeling and experimental approaches as a 3 years grant application. (ii) Using a scientific book as a starting point, students (in groups of 3-4) present the main thesis of the book (15 min). This is complemented by their own critical review of the book and presentation of the open questions and controversial points of view the book has raised (30 minutes). The speakers then organize a scientific debate by asking randomly to other students in the audience to give their opinion on the topic (45 min).
- Post your project no later than 10 days before your presentation on the AIV moodle.
- For each project, the student couple who has presented their project a week before serves as reviewers. They should post their review on the AIV moodle no later than 1 week before the project's presentation date.
- The project will be reviewed as well by an assigned AIV teacher who will meet with the presenters a week before the presentation date.
- Post the final grant application on the AIV moodle no later than 3 days before the presentation.
- A short debriefing of the presenters by the AIV teachers will take place after the seminar.
