Formats

Lectures will be held in german or english language and must follow one of four different formats of your choosing:

→ Regular lecture

The lecture may not exceed 20 minutes of speaking-time and the presentation should not consist of more than 15 slides.

→ „Peer-Presentation“

We also gladly accept team-presentations, though every group should decide on one speaker beforehand. The lecture may not exceed 20 minutes of speaking-time and the presentation should not consist of more than 15 slides.

→ Speed-Geeking (especially suitable for BA-students)

The lecture may not exceed ten minutes of speaking-time and the presentation should not consist of more than eight slides. In this format contributions will be presented simultaneously to a small

audience – think speed-dating. This will lead to a relaxed atmosphere and personal exchange.

→ Posterpresentation

For this format, we have decided on a narrower frame of topics. The centerpiece of every poster is supposed to be a certain specific object, to be highlighted from different perspectives. This may be the individual history of the object, the distance it has covered throughout the centuries of it’s existence or similar interesting points of view. Object connected to travel or migration in antiquity could be especially captivating. Additionally to the creation of a poster, a five minute long presentation is to be prepared.
