Evaluation

The evaluation will be conducted by the topic reference person and the person responsible for the seminar.

The evaluation will be based on the quality of :

  • Your written article: readability, argumentation, English
  • Your review work: reference selection and field structure
  • Your final presentation
  • Your initial draft
  • Your review of a colleague's first draft

If each step described below is not formally marked, each contribute towards producing a good final paper (75% of the grade)

    • Main contribution: how does the paper contribute to the field?
    • Strengths and weaknesses of the proposed approach
    • Outlook: what research opportunities it opens?
  • Presentation time 10'.

First draft

  • your draft should :
    • present a research field with relevant publications
    • state a research question and an hypothesis
    • propose an experiment to test the hypothesis, and discuss its expected results
