GEW Schreibwerkstatt: Exposé für die Promotion, Berlin, 07.07.2017 - 08.07.2017

Bewerbungen für ein Stipendium und zunehmend auch für eine Promotionsstelle erfordern ein Exposé. Für diesen Workshop sollte ein Thema bereits vorhanden sein. Unter anderem mit (kreativen) Schreibübungen werden wir folgenden Fragen nachgehen: Was sind Aufbau und Inhalte eines Exposés? Wie kann ich meine Ideen konkretisieren, wie plane ich mein Schreibprojekt? Wie kann ich mein Problem eingrenzen und meine Fragestellung präzisieren?

Im Rahmen der Konferenz "EnviroInfo 2017 From Science to Society: The Bridge provided by Environmental Informatics"
(Promovierende können an der Rahmenkonferenz ggf. mit reduziertem Beitrag teilnehmen)

Location: Neimënster Abbey, 28 Rue Münster, 2160 Luxembourg
Date: (September 13/14/15, 2017)

• Eva Kern, Leuphana University Lüneburg & Environmental Campus Birkenfeld
• Dominik Schöner, University of Applied Sciences Hanover
• Martina Willenbacher, HTW Berlin – University of Applied Sciences

Workshop Objectives
Nowadays, our daily life is hardly imaginable without using information and communication technologies (ICT) – both on the professional and the private side. However, such technologies consume a huge amount of energy and, thus, have a significant impact on the environmental footprint. Therefore, solutions to counteract the increasing energy consumption caused by ICT are required. On the other hand, the technologies can be used to support a more sustainable way of life.
We invite new researchers and PhD students, to share their current research or research proposals in the context of environmental and sustainability informatics with a community that always thrived on new ideas, concepts and research questions. The PhD workshop will focus on bringing PhD students from together and provide them with a platform where they can network, discuss approaches and challenges as well as present the current state of their work. In addition, there will be opportunities to obtain feedback from an established research community.
The PhD Workshop is an opportunity for PhD students to
• share and discuss approaches, challenges and open questions of their individual projects,
• receive feedback, new ideas and fresh perspectives for their own work,
• learn from and exchange with other researchers, working in the same research field,
• obtain an overview of other research activities belonging to environmental informatics,
• promote the development of a supportive community of PhD students and a spirit of collaborative research,
• contribute to the conference goals through interaction with other researchers and conference events. (From Science to Society: The Bridge provided by Environmental Informatics Luxembourg)
