Without knowledge sharing there is no difference between research and bureaucracy.
The Ph.D. Mauriana Pesaresi Seminars (formerly Ph.D. Lunchtime Seminars) are weekly meetings aimed at bringing students, researchers and professors together to discuss their work.
The cycle of seminars is dedicated to the memory of our friend and colleague Mauriana Pesaresi, who was one of the former organizers of the seminars.
For phd students, this cycle of seminars is also valid as a seminar credit for the phd degree. Note that:
- The seminar can be counted as a valid for the credit only once in the three phd years period.
- In order for the seminar to be valid you need to lecture once and attend at least 7 other seminars of this cycle during the year (January - December)
Seminars will be usually held on Tuesday in the West Seminar Room. Time can be chosen by the speaker, some possibilities are:
- Brunch-time: 11.30 am
- Lunch-time: 1 pm
- Coffee-time: 2 pm
The talks can range from a quite informal style to a formal conference style and should last 30-45 mins, leaving time for discussion.
With respect to the former organization, pizza is no longer provided by default. However, the speaker of the seminar can change organization details, including pizza, panettone, coffee, etc. In such cases the speaker is asked to arrange the extra-features.
We would like to encourage lecturing by postdocs, researchers and professors. Remeber that no on purpose slides nor extra-work is needed for your seminars.
To reserve a date for your seminar please send an e-mail to Claudio Gallicchio (email@example.com) or Michele Coscia (firstname.lastname@example.org), possibly specifying a title and a brief description of your talk.
