The contributed lectures
The largest part of our Workshop programme is the
series of contributions on the current research of younger participants
followed by discussion. We have
15 - 20 minutes for each presentation and additional time for discussion.
The author of a contributed paper will present the
highlights of the topic, so that everyone will understand the main
features and be able to follow or participate in the subsequent
discussion. The presentation will normally summarise the aim of the
research, the methodology used and some of the results obtained. It will
sometimes point out some open questions that are suitable for
If the presentation is based on transparencies it is
very important that these are clearly visible to everyone in the
audience. Use large letters and a large line separation. The point size
should be at least 18, and the number of lines per transparency should
be at most 15.
We shall invite one or two participants to be
discussant(s) on each topic.
- The discussant will normally come from another
country than the author to be able to bring fresh ideas from other
experiences and perspectives.
- The total discussion time for each topic is 10
minutes (including questions from the audience).
- The discussion is prepared on the basis of the
written contributed paper sent to the discussant a week before.
- Discussants may also tell us how closely they are
related to the topic (have studied it, worked with it, etc.).
- The discussant should give comments on the paper
just presented and may include a short summary of the topic from
some other perspective than the author's. The comments can deal with
the aim, methods, results, conclusions, application area,
interesting findings, unclear parts, and any other aspects.
- If the discussant puts forward some specific
questions to the author, these questions have to be known for the
author of the paper at least a day before. The author should avoid
replying to them in the presentation.
