Usually, the talks last 20 minutes with 5 up to 10 minutes discussions afterwards. To register and schedule a talk, you should contact [[Tobias Weinzierl]]. Add the title, the name of the supervisor (if appropriate), and a short abstract for the webpages. Students doing their Master's and diploma thesis etc. at the chair are supposed to give two talks: The first presents the topic, the status quo, and the research plan. The second talk presents the thesis' results and insights.

To register and schedule a talk, you should fill the form [https://www5.in.tum.de/workshops/colloquium/registration.php Colloquium Registration] '''at least two weeks''' before the earliest desired date.

=== Room and equipment ===
 +
 +
The SCCS Colloquium normally takes place in the room [https://portal.mytum.de/displayRoomMap?roomid=02.07.023@5607 02.07.023]. In case you want to rehearse your presentation, you can freely enter when the room is available. In special cases, we may use a different room.
 +
 +
The room is equiped with a projector [https://www.epson.eu/products/projectors/installation/eb-4650 EPSON EB-4650]. The projection area is optimized for 4:3, but 16:9 is also large enough for the room. Please set your laptop's resolution to fit the format you want (a 4:3 resolution will make the projector occupy the complete projection panel).
 +
 +
We recommend that you use your own laptop (please bring your own adapters). We can also provide a laptop which runs Linux (i.e. no Microsoft Office). Please export your slides in PDF format beforehand (a USB drive will be available). Please contact us in case you need this option
 +
 +
We can also provide you with a presenter/laser pointer ([https://www.logitech.com/en-us/product/wireless-presenter-r400 Logitech R400], USB) and whiteboard markers.

 +
* The colloquium starts with an introduction to the agenda and the moderator asks the speaker's advisor/host to put the talk into context.
 +
* Your talk starts. The scheduled time for your talk is normally 20min with additional 5-10min for discussion. Introduction talks are allocated 10min.
 +
* The moderator keeps track of the time and will stand up at the end of your time, after which point you should try to wrap up the most important remaining points. Auxiliary to that, there may be a [https://www.timetimer.com/products/time-timer-20min 20min visual timer] that shows the remaining time and beeps shortly (and quietly) at the end. You can also tell the moderator if you prefer to keep track of time for yourself. The moderator will pause the time tracking if any discussion pops up.
 +
* During the discussion session, the audience can ask questions, which are meant for clarification or for putting the talk into context.

Preparing a great talk

Do you remember a talk that made you feel very happy for attending? Do you also remember a talk that confused you? What was different between the two?

Here are a few things to check if you want to improve your presentation:

  • What is the main idea that you want people to remember after your presentation? Do you make it crystal-clear? How quickly are you arriving to it?
  • Which aspects of your work can you cover in the time frame, with a reasonable pace and good depth?
  • What can you leave out (but maybe have as back-up slides) to not confuse or overwhelm the audience?
  • How are you investing the crucial first two minutes of your presentation?
  • How much content do you have on your slides? Is all of it important? Will the audience know which part of a slide to look at? Will somebody from the last row be able to read the content? Will somebody with limited experience in your field have time to understand what is going on?
  • Are the figures clear? Are you explaining the axes or any other features clearly?
  • Which questions would you like the audience to ask you? How can you trigger these?

In any case, make sure to start preparing your talk early enough so that you can potentially discuss it, rehearse it, and improve it.
