    • Hand in a draft of their presentation 1 month (a minimum of 4 weeks) before giving their talk
    • Give a trial talk 2 weeks in advance of their public talk and hand in their final draft of the handout
    • Hand in the final version of their handout 1 week in advance
    • Give their talk at the arranged time
    • Be present at all talks
    • Take part in the discussions following the talks
