Information for presenters

All presenters (ESR Workshop IRP, invited talks and industry workshop) must submit and abstract. 

You can download the ABSTRACT TEMPLATE here:  Abstract Template (MsWord format)

E-mail your abstract to: conf.atmos@event.upc.edu before 15 June 2018.

 

Guidelines for invited presentations (science and industry)

Science speakers: Your presentation needs to provide an introduction and overview of your research field. Include the fundamental references.

You have a total time of 30 minutes. Allocate 10 minutes for discussion and questions with the ESRs.

 

Industry speakers: We are not looking for talks about only your products, projects or entire organization, but primarily about the way of working within a company, answering questions like:

 

  • What is the work on a typical day of an engineer/scientist in your company?
  • What are the main differences between academia and industry?
  • How important is the focus on the bottom-line in your daily work?
  • How is the company organized on a small scale (project based, matrix structure,…)?
  • How do ideas get to the market within your company?
  • What is expected of an employee in general? What do you value when you look for an employee?
  • If you founded your company (e.g. start-up), provide some advice about entrepreneurship.

 

The above list is just a suggestion and not all questions need to be answered. Preferably, your presentation should be mostly based on personal experience.

 

Your allocated time is 45 minutes. Organize your time allocating and promoting discussion with the ESRs.

 

Guidelines for ESR

Abstracts and presentation for ESR Workshop IRP: 2-3 July, 2018

During the first two days, during the ESR Workshop IRP sessions you will give a presentation about your project. Please provide a short abstract (deadline June 15, 2018).

You can download the ABSTRACT TEMPLATE here:  Abstract Template (MsWord format)

E-mail your abstract to: conf.atmos@event.upc.edu before June 15, 2018.

Presentation guidelines:

  • Your presentation must not exceed 12 minutes.
  • That will allow 8 minutes for discussions.
  • Supported formats: PowerPoint and pdf
  • You will need to upload your presentation onto the computer available in the room.
  • If you use animations, videos or any other multimedia support, be sure that they are integrated in your presentation and works just coping your presentation onto the room’s computer.

Basic guidelines for the contents of your presentation:

  • First slide: Name, organization, date and title
  • Index, outline or contents of your presentation.
  • Enumerate the objectives of your project.
  • Introduce the background of your subject.
  • .....
  • You should not require more than 10 to 12 slides. Many slides in a short presentation generally distract the audience. Allocate between 1 to 2 minutes per slide.
  • Do not include too much text on each slide.

 

Poster session with the External Advisory Board: July 5, 2018 

On July, 5th, you will have the possibility to meet the External Advisory Board and discuss your projects with it. This will be combined with a poster session (eventually, the posters might hang during the whole summer school).

Prepare a poster about your work and bring it to Barcelona.

The format should be A1 (both landscape or portrait are available). 

 

Short report ESR Supervision Committee: July 6, 2018

According to the project proposal, you need to prepare a short report (max. 10 pages) about your project. It should contain: 

 "(1) A review of the literature in sufficient depth and breadth to enable a general reader to understand the basis for their project. 

  (2) A summary of the objectives of the project. 

  (3) An initial plan for reaching the objectives that includes an indication of how results/data will be analyzed and any additional training to be    acquired. 

  (4) A summary of concerns/challenges with the project and with the supervision."

Please bring this report to the summer school. There you will be able to discuss the reports with the ESR Supervision Committee. Also, you can see this as a chance to gain experience in writing and to reflect about your research projects.

 Submit your  reports to: conf.atmos@event.upc.edu before June 24,  2018.
