AQ Proseminar „Understanding the Universe“ WS 2018/19

Date: Tuesday, 5. DS (14:50-16:20)
Location: REC/C118
Tutors: T.E. Cowan,
D. Bemmerer, R. Beyer, K. Falk, F. Fiedler, N. Hartley, D. Kraus, F. Kroll, J. Metzkes-Ng, H. Takabe, J. Vorberger, K. Zeil
Contact: T.Cowan@hzdr.de, Roland.Beyer@hzdr.de, A.Varga@hzdr.de

Content:

The proseminar "Understanding the Universe" will cover a wide range of topics in fundamental physics relevant to much of the research performed at the IKTP with a focus on the activities at the Institute of Radiation Physics of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf. Guidelines for scientific presentations will be given and the individual talks will be analyzed.

Comments:

  • Every student participating in this proseminar has to give a talk of 20 minutes. There will be up to two talks per date. After each talk everybody in the audience is allowed and encouraged to ask scientific questions and discuss the content of the talk. Afterwards the presentation itself will be analyzed and advices for improvements will be given.
  • If you wish to participate in the proseminar, please take a look at the topics below and send a ranked list of three potential topics and three prefered dates to roland.beyer@hzdr.de. From this list, one topic will be chosen depending on the preferences of all participants. The final content of the talks will be defined in face-to-face discussions with the responsible tutors.
  • If you have an own proposal for a topic please submit it and we will decide if it matches the scope of the seminar and assign a competent tutor to you.
  • Registration deadline is the 21.09.2018!
