Discussion Round

The DENeB discussion round serves as a platform for PhD students and Postdocs from Berlin to discuss their research. In the discussion round the emphasis is on discussion and not on presenting. Instead of having a 45-minute presentation, all papers/research projects to be discussed are circulated beforehand and we start with the discussion right away.

Participation requires two things for those who want their research to be discussed:

  1. Papers/extended abstracts will be circulated at least three days in advance. Every participant is required to read all submissions and prepare thoughts/questions on each of them.

  2. Commitment to attend all discussion rounds during the discussion day even those in which they are not presenting and
