Seminars 2007-2014

Student Seminars

Traditionally, ILL students meet every month and present their recent results. The aim of these seminars is to practice giving talks in a relaxed atmosphere. Therefore only students (including stagaires) are invited, for the so-called Student Organized Seminars (yes, the SOS !)

You are very welcome to contribute as well. At least 2 talks/day should be fine. Contact the student representatives to tell them about your talk. Pure white board seminars are fine, as are Powerpoint presentations.
