Seminars at CIMeC: Step-by-Step Guide
Dear Principle Investigator,
Should you like to invite a collaborator or an expert to give a talk at CIMeC these guidelines will help you understand how.
Please consult the fact sheet available (CIMeC Seminar Fact Sheet) for a breakdown of what to do and when.
There are 4 main types of speakers at CIMeC:
Visiting Professor (Lecture)
Visiting Faculty stays at least 1 month during a solar year and is expected to give at least two lectures, or a series of lectures, aimed at students. This visitor is required to have a foreign affiliation and position. Towards the end of each year a selection in CIMeC is held to determine the following year’s visiting faculty. The selected faculty are then approved by the Senato Accademico of the University, which also decides on its budget. University housing is available. Please see fact sheet for details.
Visiting Scientists may stay as little as 1 day and up to a few days and, although recommended, are not obligated to give a seminar. The main purpose of these types of visitors is for research collaborations. Please see fact sheet for details.
Research seminars are covered with an internal CIMeC budget and have to be of interest for several CIMeC PIs and their labs. They are intended for EU speakers or non-EU who happen to be in EU (i.e., they should not be too expensive). To allocate the money, we use first-come-first-served policy. The budget needs to be spent by the end of each year. We allocate around 600 euros per seminar.
The Colloquium Coordinator organizes these seminars in September of each year upon consulting with the PI’s of the Center. By October the speakers for the PhD academic year are announced. Colloquia are covered with the CIMeC PhD budget and have to be of interest for most CIMeC PIs and their labs. EU as well as non-EU speakers are invited. Please see fact sheet for details.
