Student seminar cycle
This activity is meant to foster scientific exchange between students and to help them to organize the other student activities. It takes place every month, alternating between Mainz and Darmstadt, and in combination with the Lecture cycle. Students are requested to periodically present their research progress in front of the other students (ideally once per year), taking into account the interdisciplinary background of the audience. Presentations are no longer than 30min plus discussion (two presentations per session). This meeting are also used to elect the student speakers and discuss IRTG and CRC-TR related issues among the students, such as suggestions for the annual retreat, the complementary training opportunities, external guests, and the organization of the summer schools. The students organize this activity themselves, with the support of the IRTG heads and coordinators.
