Scientific Writing Workshop by Dr. Katharina Ulbrich January 12th, 2021

January 12th, 2021

Speaker Dr. Katharina Ulbrich (TU Dresden)

Who is doing a PhD has to write a lot. However, scientific writing often turns out to be a major challenge for PhD students. How is it possible to manage the PhD writing process in a way that it leads to the production of high-qualitiy scientific texts within the given time?
This workshop offers theoretical input on scientific writing processes and strategies as well as the opportunity to practice writing and text revision techniques based on own text samples. Participants are invited to reflect on their individual writing habits (and if neces-sary get some ideas on how to modify them) with the aim to establish productive writing routines in the long-term. Citations, literature management, formatting and layout-re-lated issues as well as the proof-reading of scientific texts are not part of this workshop.

Time: 09:00 - 13:00
Location: online 

Seminar by Prof. Dr. Silvana Botti December 15th, 2020

December 15th, 2020

Title: Exchange-correlation functionals for the band structure of solids: from bulk systems to interfaces and surfaces


Time: 09:00

Location: online via zoom

RTG retreat

October 30th, 2020

The purpose is to give short (~ 10 minutes) overviews of the research
ongoing in the projects, which should ideally also help the new PhD
students to get an overview of what's going on in the RTG, and to have
broader discussions with the students about points they would like to
change etc.


Time: 09:00 - 14:00
Location: online via zoom
