Public graduation presentations, June 25

On Friday June 25, eight students will present their Media Technology MSc graduation thesis work. In 20-25 minutes each graduate will present their research project, followed by 10-15 minutes public discussion. Everyone is invited to attend.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the presentations take on a hybrid form. Some students will present from the Snellius Building at Leiden University, with their thesis advisors and a limited number of staff members present. Others will present from their own home via a video link.

Conference format

Media Technology MSc graduation presentations follow a classic conference format. Each student presents their work in 20 minutes. With the primary advisor acting as a conference session chair, the presentation is followed by a moderated public discussion.

Invited critics

Although everyone can ask questions in the discussion, the right to ask the first questions is for the two invited critics. These were personally invited by the graduate to read their thesis before the presentation, and to formulate one or two questions for the discussion. Ambitious students have been known to invite high-profile academic critics.
