Each session is chaired by the Scientific Committee representative and starts with until 20 min for the student presentation, followed by until 30 min of discussion with the Advisory Group, and ending with until 10 min for deliberation of the grade (0-20) of the pre-thesis.
Students presenting the progress reports

The yearly progress report is required for the student to be able to register for the next year, subject to a positive assessment by the Advisory Group. This assessment may be orally stated by the supervisor in the progress report session or otherwise be sent in written form.
Each session is chaired by the Scientific Committee representative and is composed by 15 min (max) presentations by each of the three or four students in the session, followed by a short discussion.
