Four kinds of presentation are possible:
a) Short session: 20 minutes + 10 minutes of questions from the audience
b) Regular Session: 30 minutes of presentation + 5 minutes of questions
c) Regular Session with discussant: 30 minutes of presentation + 10 minutes of discussion + 5 minutes of questions
d) Job Market presentation with discussant: 45 minutes of presentation + 10 minutes of discussion + 5 minutes of questions from the audience
The short session is specifically aimed at PhD students at an early stage of research/want to presenent a research idea and that want to get some feedback on their current ideas rather than on an already very formalized paper (around 10-12 slides). Regarding the regular session, students can chose between a session without or with a discussant. If they decide for the latter, they should indicate and contact the discussant by themselves. For your presentation, be concise (max. 20/23 slides) so that discussant/audience may play their role. If you wish to have a discussant, you should send her/him a draft of your paper or at least your slides a week before the workshop at the latest.
In order to properly benefit from the DW, it is recommended that students notify their supervisors of the date and time of their presentations as soon as the information becomes available.
Job market presentations will take place in plenary sessions in order to allow for a large number of students and faculty members to attend the talks.
Each academic year, it is compulsory for all Ph.D. students in Economics at UCLouvain, UNamur and USL-B to present at least once at the DW, either in autumn or in spring. Attendance to all the doctoral workshops is also compulsory.
