Aim of course

Communication, both written and oral, is crucial in most graduate jobs, whether in the commercial or the scientific sector. The successful presentation of oneŽs own work depends on well-developed communication skills. In the more specific context of international scientific conferences, many more papers and presentations would be accepted if the manner in which they were presented were improved. Through this course, the successful student should be on competitive level with native English speakers in planning and carrying out the presentation of research work. The student should learn to write concisely and with precision, avoiding the main pitfalls of English grammar: he or she should acquire the tools necessary to make his or her presentation effective and attractive, learn to use visuals well, master time limits in presentations, chair a meeting and handle questions.

Subject of course

The purpose of this course is to help students to communicate ideas better and to learn the skills of scientific communication. The main aims are: o to improve communication skills o to concentrate on scientific communication, both written and oral o to learn about how scientific communication is performed at workshops, conferences, and in journals. Further goals include training graduate and PhD students how to access information about different topics, such as research results, conferences, etc., in paper-based publications and on the WWW to write cv's, abstracts, extended abstracts, and articles for acceptance at international conferences and publications (both with regard to language and contents) to review and assess submissions to scientific conferences.
