ToDo before the workshop: Test a presentation idea
Each participant will prepare a short (max 10 min) presentation of his/her research. In addition to present and discuss our research, the aim is to try some new visual/presentation technique, that you have not had opportunity to try before.
- Pick one idea
- Prepare a 10-min presentation of your own research project using this new idea.
- Show the idea in small group (Thursday), discuss, improve.
- Give a presentation in Friday.
- Get feedback
- Learn from others
In Thursday, we will split up in small groups to share and improve our ideas. Friday
List of possible things you can test
- Using AI-tools for presentation drafting, for example https://gamma.app/
- How to prepare 3D graphics or visualization, of e.g. experimental setup? Demonstrate some modelling tool, like
- How to create a short animation of your research procedure?
- Use Matlab (or similar) for animated graphs
- Exploit PowerPoint features you haven’t tried before.
- How to include VR / AR?
Each participant makes the travel arrangements themselves according to the rules of their university / research institute. After the trip, make a travel claim to your university /research institute. They will charge NFSN.
