Your talk:
When preparing a talk for our colloquium, please:
  • Send a PDF-file of an (almost) final version of your talk by email to V. Franz a day before the talk (latest: 2h before the talk). Details for the PDF-file: 1 slide per page. Make sure that you do NOT create separate pages for each step of animations. Give this PDF-file a sensible name. E.g., colloq-(your-last-name)-(date).pdf. If you made major changes to the talk after sending it to V. Franz, then please also send the final version after your talk.
  • Practice your talk!
  • Adhere to the time-limits during your talk. Practice that!
  • Present data as graphs (supplemented but not supplanted by numerical statistics). Often these graphs will simply be means with error-bars showing the standard error of the mean.
  • 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!
  • Finally (just in case, I forgot to mention): Practice your talk! Send a PDF before the talk!

Journal club:
5-10 min presentation + 25-20 min discussion (in total app. 30 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-SS2023), 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) .

BSc Cognitive Science students: Forschungskolloquium Kognitionswissenschaft

BSc Cognitive Science students receive credit for visiting talks. 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. If you join one of our sessions and want a verification of your attendance, please have a look at: Nachweis for Forschungskolloquium Kognitionswissenschaft. The 'Laufzettel' there contains all the rules that apply (for example, listening to talks by BSc/MSc students cannot be counted as research talks --- although we nevertheless encourage you to visit such talks too!).
