To successfully complete the seminar, you must actively participate in two classes. Three dates will be offered each semester.

1) For the first class you must prepare a poster with the conceptual structure (and possibly first results) of your Bachelor thesis work and briefly present it in a "Poster Session" (2-5 min). Typical sub-headings of the poster are a brief introduction (background information on the subject), research question(s), and applied methods. If you conduct your work in a group, please create a joint poster.
2) At the second class, the results your thesis will be presented and interpreted. If you conduct your work in a group, the duration of the oral presentation is 20 minutes (per group), while the duration of the presentation is 10 min for individuals. Following the presentation, the professors, tutors and others will discuss the present work with you (about 5 min).

Please discuss the timing of your participation and the content of your poster / presentation in advance with your supervisor!
