Dear all,

short summary: the SIB is organizing again a series of classes on
techniques for successful presentations, taught by Damian Conway. There
will be two separate workshops:

* Advanced Technical Presentation 1: Core Techniques
  Monday 30 March 2015

* Advanced Technical Presentation 2: Design and Delivery Skills
  Tuesday 31 March 2015
  (it is highly recommended to follow the first class before attending
   this one)

A detailed description of the classes is available from

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 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
these two courses.

These two classes are taught by Damian Conway, a well-known speaker and
trainer. The first workshop has already been organized four times at
SIB, and the feedback from the participants is consistently the best we
ever got for any SIB course.

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

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.
