SIB Workshops, April 25 & 26, 2016

the SIB is organizing again its highly successful series of classes on presentation skills, taught by Damian Conway. There

will be two separate workshops:

* Advanced Technical Presentation 1: Core Techniques

 Monday 25 April 2016

* Advanced Technical Presentation 2: Design and Delivery Skills

 Tuesday 26 April 2016

 (it is recommended to follow the first class before attending  this one, but not compulsory)

A detailed description of the classes is available from

Read on for more details, or please contact for any question.

Presenting technical information to an audience is one of the hardest tasks any scientist can face, and presenting effectively is not a

natural talent for most people. Indeed, many technical presentations utterly fail in their primary objective — to convey a complex idea or

argument clearly and convincingly. These classes explain — and demonstrate — the key techniques that combine to produce an effective

and enjoyable technical presentation. All participants, from master or PhD students to lab heads will benefit from the techniques presented in

these two courses.

These two classes are taught by Damian Conway, a well-known speaker and trainer, and they have received the best feedback over all courses

organized by SIB.

Requirements: There is no prerequisite for this course; the number of seats is limited, and they will be attributed on a “first come, first served”


Cost: For Swiss academic participants:

100 CHF for the first workshop,

150 CHF for the second workshop.

Other participants should contact us.

Practical organization – Location: The session runs from 9:00 to 17:00 approximately, with a lunch break (lunch is not included). The course will be held on the Dorigny campus of the University of Lausanne.

Registration is open: You can find a registration link from the pages indicated above for each of the two courses.
