Aims, contents and method of the course

The seminar models a scientific conference, from call, application, review process to presentation in order to familiarise students with one of the basic rituals of the scientific community. Audience will be researchers and students of all MEi:CogSci partner universities, the place of the conference will be announced. The abstracts will be published in the web conference tool as well as in the printed proceedings, participation in the conference is open to the public.
For first-year-MEi:CogSci-students, this seminar takes place in conjunction with the lab internship which is part of the "Introduction into Research II"-Module. Other students who would like to present their cognition research as a poster to an interdisciplinary and international audience are welcome.

During the peer-review process students learn to assess and evaluate the research of their colleagues as well as give feedback to their research projects. They further learn to present their own scientific research as a poster at the international MEi:CogSci Conference and critically discuss the research projects.
