The format of the workshop is the following:

  • The speaker records their presentation in advance and circulate it about five days before the workshop, along with the paper where available. That enables participants to view the presentation at their convenience and prepare questions beforehand if they wish to do so.
  • The speaker begins the seminar with a 5-10-minute summary of the key points. We then move to Q&A, comments and discussion.
  • The workshop takes place once a month during the academic year, always on Tuesday.
