*Short Presentations

This session is a collection of short talks where students present a small number of slides about what they are preparing for the Thesis Proposal. The presentation may be structured as follows:

1 - Title of the thesis, name of the candidate

2 - Motivation and research topic (why work on this topic?)

3 - Background (relevant information only)

4 - Research question(s) (what problem(s) will be considered?)

5 - Methodology (how to work towards a solution?)

6 - Expected results (what scientific contributions will be made?)

7 - Significance (why will the expected contributions be important?)

8 - Dissemination strategy (how is the work to be published?)

Up to 12 slides will be enough. Presentations must last no more than 13 minutes. There will be 7 minutes after each presentation for comments/questions.
