Presentation Guidelines:

General presentation guidelines

Each presentation should include a title slide with

  • your name, and include also a mark with the name of your advisor(s).
  • each slide should contain a page number. This may be helpful in discussions after the talk.

There are two different kind of presentations. One for starters and one for presenting a thesis in the final stage. You can find hints below.

If you have built a tool then you may also demonstrate what you have done. Discuss with your advisor if you shall demonstrate your tool at the Final talk.

Be careful that you have only a limited amount of time

You should include these topics:

    - Present a motivation why the problem might be interesting

    - How do current approaches tackling the problem look like
  • What are your plans in your thesis
