Neuro-SysMed Junior Scientist Symposium

The objective of the symposium series is to provide the PhD candidates with valuable skills into oral presentation techniques of own research, as well as dissemination of others research, provide opportunities to engage in scientific discussions, and to take advantage of peer reviews and comments to strengthen the scientific quality of own research and scientific thinking. A main ambition is also to strengthen the scientific networks and to encourage candidates to establish relations to scientists.

The symposia are organized 4 times annually, twice every semester. Each symposium is organized with a keynote lecture initially (45 min), followed by 4 PhD candidates/postdoctoral researchers who present their work (25 min each including the oral presentation and discussion). Subsequently, there will be final discussions. The presentations will be of own research with special attention to presentation techniques and quality.

Shamundeeswari Anandan holds academic responsibility for the symposia.
