5. Promovendentag am 21.02.2018

Informationen zur Anmeldung als Promovend

Dear PhDs,

Same procedure as every year: we would like to invite you to participate at the next Promovendentag on 21.02.2018.


The goal of the Promovendentag is to provide a supportive atmosphere for PhD students to present and receive feedback on their ongoing work. Students at different stages in their research will have an opportunity to present and discuss their problem statements, goals, methods and results. We welcome poster and/or talk on all levels and would like to encourage first to last year-PhDs to present your latest findings (for ongoing projects) or research plans (for new projects) and put them up for discussion with your colleagues and members of the Hochschule Niederrhein. The symposium aims to provide students useful guidance on various aspects of their research from established researchers and other PhD students.


Hence we encourage all our PhD-students to present their project and join our fifth Promovendentag on 21.01.2018.


For registration choose if you would like to present a talk and/or a poster (only). Submitted talks will be evaluated and selected after the registration closes. The selection will be announced on January 12th. For registration send an email to promotionskolleg@hs-niederrhein and tell us how you would like to present your project (talk and/or poster) and the presumably title.



The Präsidium aims to get maximum involvement from the scientific members of the Hochschule Niederrhein. The Promovendentag is open to all members of the Hochschule with an interest in science!



Poster Presentaions

A poster may present late-breaking research or work in progress. A poster can help attract interest and give a rapid overview of what your research is all about. At the day you present your poster ideally in interactive discussion with the audience.

No templates will be provided. The poster will be printed in-house, therefore its limited to DinA0 (84,1x118,9 cm). For that reason you have to use these numbers for setting. Please make sure to use a printable logo (https://www.hs-niederrhein.de/internes/cd-portal/logo). Posters must be converted into a PDF-file and send to promotionskolleg(at)hs-niederrhein.de. For further questions please don’t hesitate to get in contact with Cristina Lohr (Referat Hochschulkommunikation).


Talk Presentation

The content of the talk should be an overview of your current state of the PhD. If selected you will give a 10-minute talk on your research activities and progress results followed by 5 minutes of questions/ discussion.

Students not selected for a talk will still have the opportunity to present a poster during the poster session.


 The Promovendentag will be held in German. Poster and Talks can be in German or English.
