Communicating OR/MS: The Writing and Presenting Activities

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.

Overview

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.
