Communicating OR/MS: The Writing and Presenting Activities


Nov 22, 2019

16/03/2020 - The activity is currently postponed. We will update the schedule as soon as we have a better view of the situation. The participants are asked to check their emails for more information.


After two successful editions the writing activity is back! This year it will include a presenting activity. The writing and presenting activities are a great opportunity to learn and experience the peer-reviewed publishing and presenting process guided by experienced peers. It includes a presentation by Prof. Laporte on writing scientific papers and includes two group meetings with peers and a faculty member to share ideas and guide the writing process. It also includes a presentation and guided workshops by oral communication expert Sylvie Hertrich. Moreover, it will equip students to prepare their presentations on the LaTeX class Beamer.
