The SIB is organizing again the extremely successful one-day workshop on
presentation techniques by Damian Conway, which will take place in
Lausanne on Tuesday 1st April 2014.

Presenting technical information to an audience is one of the hardest
tasks any scientist can face. 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. This class explains — and demonstrates — 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 this course.

The class is taught by Damian Conway, a well-known speaker and trainer.
This course was already organized by the SIB in Lausanne in 2010, 2011
and 2012, and the feedback from the participants is the best we ever got
for any SIB course.

A more detailed description of the course is available at
http://edu.isb-sib.ch/course/view.php?id=171. Please contact
Frédéric Schütz (frederic.schutz at isb-sib.ch) for any question.

There is no prerequisite for this course. The number of seats is
limited, and they will be attributed on a "first come, first served"
basis. Note that the course may be cancelled if there are not enough

Maximum 200 CHF for the day (including the course documentation on
paper). This is the maximum price; depending on the final number of
participants, the final price is very likely to be lower.
