Journal Club Winter Term 2017/18

Day, time & location: 

During term time:
Mondays from 10:30 till 12:00 hrs, weekly, starting on October 23rd, 2017
72076 Tübingen, Sand 6, room F230



Students can obtain 2 ECTS for the active participation in the Journal Club (non graded, only pass or fail). Active participation implies, first, that students have to present at least one paper during term. Second, they have to attend the Journal Club regularly: non-attendance will only be tolerated once per term (unless the student provides a doctor's note).

Finally, the number of participants at the Journal Club is strictly limited to 10, and members of the NIP lab take precedence over external students. Thus in practice there is a limit of 2, 3 or maximally 4 external students per term, depending on the number of current NIP lab members.
