  • Research workshop means: a) A presentation at a seminar attended by employees of the supervising department and (possibly) guests, organized by the Head of the department in order to critically evaluate DDP students’ research projects, or to critically evaluate a presented study relevant to the dissertation topic. The student’s supervisor selects from the variants with regard to the specifics of the particular field of study and the focus of the dissertation. The second variant (presentation of a study) is expected especially if the student intends to submit the dissertation in the form of a thematically relevant collection of published works (or works in print or otherwise accepted for publication). The student is required to submit a dissertation research project/study relevant to the dissertation topic no later than 14 days prior to the research workshop, electronically and via the department secretary’s office. At the same time, the student has to submit the respective text in the “Homework Vault” application in the IS MU. Should the presentation take place at a summer school, credits may only be awarded if the student does not obtain credits for the summer school within the course Internship. b) A presentation at an important and thematically relevant research conference or at a summer school. The text of the paper presented with a corresponding review written in connection with the publication of the paper in the conference proceedings (if available), must be submitted through the “Homework Vault” application in the IS MU. For the presentation at a summer school credits may only be awarded if the student does not receive credits for this summer school as part of the course Internship.
