* All participants must:
* Instead of writing a report ''after'' the talk, we expect the participants to distribute a '''handout''' in the week before the seminar and send it to tba to be put up on the web page.
+
** Make the first appointment with their supervisor 2 months (a minimum of 8 weeks) before giving their talk
** The handout is to be written in English.
+
** Have read the literature provided on the website/by the supervisor before this first meeting
** All participants are expected to read the handout as preparation to the talk.
+
** Hand in a draft of their presentation 1 month (a minimum of 4 weeks) before giving their talk
** It should describe the contents of the talk, written out in full.
+
** Give a trial talk 2 weeks in advance of their public talk and hand in their final draft of the handout
** It should have 8 to 10 pages.
+
** Hand in the final version of their handout 1 week in advance
** If available, up to three original articles can be attached to the handout.
