All PhD candidates are invited to submit an abstract of max. 250 words including your research plans or study results. If you want to present your study results, your abstract should be in the following format: background, methods, results, conclusion. Of course you are also welcome to join the RIHS PhD retreat if you don’t have any results yet. If you plan on submitting an abstract on your research plan, it should be in the following format: background, methods, expected results. All abstracts should be written in English. Although encouraged, it is not obligatory to submit an abstract to attend the Retreat.
Based on the abstracts, PhD candidates are selected to give either an oral presentation or a 4-slide short talk (to be determined by the organization). The best oral presentation and best 4-slide short talk will be awarded (€100,- each).
