Your talk:
When preparing a talk for our colloquium, please:
  • Practice your talk!
  • Send a PDF-file (and if available a PowerPoint file) of the final version of your talk by email to V. Franz before the talk. Details for the PDF-file: 1 slide per page and make sure that you do NOT create separate pages for each step of the animations. Give this PDF-file a sensible name. E.g., colloq-(your-last-name)-(date).pdf
  • Adhere to the time-limits during your talk. Practice that!
  • Present data as graphs (supplemented but not supplanted by numerical statistics).
  • Provide your name, the date of your talk, your institution (often this is simply: University of Tübingen), etc. at the title-slide.
  • Practice your talk!

Journal club:
5-10 min presentation + 15-10 min discussion (in total app. 20 min; please make sure you adhere to these time-limits!). In the journal club a member of our group present an influential, scientific article relevant to our current work. Articles should typically be recent (e.g., 3-5 years), but could also be older if of special interest. Articles will be available at our file-server (with the path being e.g., EC-STORE/literature/articles/journal-club-SS2022), please ask a member of our group if you do not know how to access those. Please make sure that a meaningful reference (containing title, author, year, journal) is presented at this web-page (either by you or by sending an email to V. Franz) and that the full APA-reference in the correct APA-formatting is present on the title-slide of your presentation (besides the typical things that should always be on a title slide: your name, the date of your talk, your institution (often this is simply: University of Tübingen) .

A note to our BSc Cognitive Science students

Since winter term WS2017/18 you receive credit for visiting talks in one of our cognitive science colloquia. This is intended to reward you for looking around and taking part in our active research community. Essentially, our idea is to 'nudge' you into making it a routine of your student life to look around for interesting research talks and pick those that are of interest to you. Therefore, we hope that you will visit much more than those 15 talks that are the minimum requirement during the course of your BSc-studies. For details, see:
Forschungskolloquium Kognitionswissenschaft
