Discussion Round

The DENeB discussion round serves as a platform for Ph.D. and post doc students from Berlin to discuss their own research. It takes place every second Wednesday of the month at the DIW.

In the DENeB discussion round the emphasis is on discussion and not on presenting, i.e. instead of having a 45 minute presentation the paper/research project to be discussed is circulated beforehand and we start with the discussion right away.

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

  1. a commitment to attend (at least for a semester) all discussion rounds even those in which they are not presenting and
  2. the paper/extended abstract to be discussed should be circulated at least three days in advance. Every participant is required to read it and prepare thoughts/questions on it.

Students who do not present in a given semester are welcome to participate as often as they like. For the distribution of future slots past attendance and urgency (for example impending doctoral defense) will be considered.

Location: Francine D. Blau Room, 3.3.002b, DIW Berlin, 9am - 10am.

If you would like to participate in the discussion round please contact us as deneb@diw.de or sign in on our doodle survey.
