During the semester, Dr. Chiara Esposito is offering this (hopefully) lively discussion group, where everyone from the Master's to the Postdoc level can discuss their own work or other interesting topics.

We aim for an in-depth discussion of research problems, of the current solutions and their strong *and*
weak points. The seminar, where we meet with junior colleagues, will offer an adequate environment for this.
Don't be afraid, join us if you like! Everybody is welcome to give a talk - please get yourself a slot by writing
us an e-mail or talking to us.

For further information, please contact Chiara Esposito. And see also the "formal seminar announcement" below.

Organisers | Short introduction to the seminar (15min, before talk). |

"The Joint Über-Seminar" is aimed at creating a nice interdisciplinary environment for young scientists (master's and PhD students, postdocs) that stimulates an in-depth discussion of own (or other) research topics. The speaker may use the meeting to his liking; however we propose the following standard procedure: initially, the speaker will give a basic introduction to his research topic (45-60 min) for people who are not in the field. Open questions and basic challenges of the work should be brought out openly. This will be followed by a 30 min coffee break, after which we will have a discussion in order to stimulate research ideas and find new directions; this part is expected to be moderated by the speaker (45-60 min). By construction, the seminar shall provide an "alternative model" to the competition-based mode of thinking and promoting ideas often seen in contemporary science. In order to protect this idea, destructive attacks ("Your group has been doing this wrong for 20 years!") or spying at colleagues ("Can you explain this to me 'cause I want to submit a letter on it tomorrow?") will not be tolerated. Apart from these constraints, we very much invite every young researcher to attend and/or give a talk. Applications for talks should be directed to the organiser Chiara Esposito.
