In Seminar II students become acquainted with the paper publication procedure and its presentation on the locally organized conference. Besides writing and submitting a paper, students are included into the conference reviewing procedure, where they play an active role as the conference program members. Each student therefore performs the tasks of bidding for the papers, reviewing assigned papers, submitting a revision of the paper, incorporating reviewers' comments and publicly presenting the paper. The presentations take place in front of the audience formed of all Ph.D. students of first and second year. The presentations are moderated and commented on by an instructor.
For the majority of doctoral students this seminar is their first oportunity to write a scientific paper. The course therefore represents a good exercise which provides a base for the later practice.
The aims of Seminar IV are similar to Seminar II. In this course students also prepare a paper, submit it to a locally organized conference, bid for papers reviews, review assigned papers and publicly present the paper. The presentations take place in front of the audience formed of all Ph.D. students of first and second year. The presentations are moderated and commented on by an instructor.
Since the students are already familiar with the bases of scientific publishing, in this course the quality of their papers is progressed to a level which is sufficient for submitting to an international conference or into a scientific journals.
