Presentation Guideline for Seminar II

Prepare your presentations as follows.

Procedure to disclose your presentation title and abstract for Seminar II

In Seminar II, students make a presentation of their own research. They must give a 1st presentation 6 month after enrollment, and a 2nd presentation a year later than the 1st one or 6 months before their graduation. Students must disclose the presentation title and abstract at least a week in advance. If they fail to do so, the presentation may not be admitted.

  1. Copy either of template-e.html (English only) or template-ej.html (English and Japanese) in the following directories, and create a file with the name [Student No.].html. For example, if your Student No. is 0461099, your file name must be 0461099.html.

  2. Open the file, fill out the title and abstract of your talk, and save the file.

  3. Check the site below:
    follow the link of your presentation, and confirm that the information of your talk has been uploaded.

Attending attitude

The first aim of Seminar presentation is to widen your perspective and train your presentation and communication abilities.

So try to provide a comprehensible presentation and also try to ask many questions and discuss the presentation with each other. To complete this aim, try to understand research activities carried out in this school with each other and gain experience with debate and discussions. Students are given priority as questioners. So, chairs not only get comments from sub-research advisors, but also have to facilitate all the students to join the discussion instead of just relying on the sub-research advisors.

The chair calls on a questioner, who then gives their occupation and name, asks questions and presents opinions. The chair is responsible to control time.

Questions are categorized in two groups. One is to clarify the concept or how to interpret the data, which helps not only the questioner but also audience members from different study fields to understand the research. Another is to present your own opinion, idea, and future problems to be solved, and ask about solutions, which can be really helpful for the next research step. Discussion, pros and cons, also makes research more constructive and helps with progress.

Although in academic conferences and doctoral defense, it is understandable that you might hesitate to ask questions in crowds because of a lack of confidence in your own knowledge, the Seminar is a place to train yourself and not a rehearsal for a conference. So do not hesitate to take advantage of discussion and debate.
