Questions related to Seminars
This semester, I am having a credit seminar. I have to choose a topic related to Agricultural biotechnology and molecular biology. Suggest me a good topic, which will help me to get good credit grade. The topic should be related to molecular biology.
Today I learned from a seminar about a discussion "what amount of recombinant protein you used in gene-KO cells. And the amount should equal that in cells". So my question is when we do transfection to complement a gene in KO cells, should I find a plasmid amount leading to the same expression level of this protein as parental cells? Because in my experience, transfected protein is always much higher than the basal level in cells I used, like 293T.
Do you happen to know a service provider who can organize science communication workshops or seminars for small teams? Topics being presentation skills, popular writing, data visualisation, online communication, or similar.
We're running student groups where I'm based and our discussion for the next meeting is how to ask good questions after talks.
I know there are many researchers on here that attend conferences, seminars, etc, so I ask do you have any strategies, tips, or tricks on asking good questions?
I guess my big recommendation is to not be afraid of asking questions as it's likely other people are wondering the same thing, so what would be yours?
How do you judge the success of a particular presentation st conferences, workshops and seminars?
Kindly share your valued opinion. Best regards
My co-author and I are working on a paper using the Economic Freedom of the World and 19 countries (sample cannot be increased because it is focused on a specific Region). The number of years is 19, then our sample is relatively short. We are trying to design a "non-orthodoxal experimental review", and apply diff-in-diff, but: 1) we do not have a specific treatment year, countries can be treated or not treated during all the period sample (treatment is if economic freedom score decreased, then country 1 can be treated in year 3, 4, 8, 10 (if its economic freedom score decreased those years) and not-treated in the other years that its economic freedom score did not decrease); 2) we are using an interaction model, my two interaction terms are treatment (1 if decreased the score of economic freedom, 0 otherwise), and intensity (the % variation of the economic freedom score), and other controls. We have presented in some seminars and conferences the research progress and early results of this paper but suggestions just focus on the "size of the sample", which we know could be a caveat but as I said the research intention is just the Region, the early results are significant and show the expected signs. We have not received suggestions on our "non-orthodoxal experimental review" (different treatment years, countries that can be treated or not in different years, our interaction model specification, etc...) My specific question is: Does anybody could give us some insights or suggestions on the methodology and how to respond convincingly that increasing the sample size is not an option for this research.
During the current COVID-19 pandemic almost all higher education institutions (HEIs) around the world have initiated online teachings, online seminars, workshops, webinars involving large number of teachers and pupils. The question above is for the experts to express their views and comments on the negative aspects of all these online activities.
I am looking to include a dimension of Lacanian psychoanalysis to my master thesis. I am in the early phases. My focus is rooted in unlearning, objecthood, memory/familiarity/consciousness. I am also looking at topology (Borromean Knots) and the symptom. For context, I am dealing with this work in the environment of exhibition-making and curatorial work.
I wanted to start doing some more expansive reading on text offered by Lacan and I was wondering if anyone can give me guidance as to which one of his seminars/books are best suited to my area of interest.
So far, I have narrowed it down to:
The Four Fundamental Concepts of Psychoanalysis
Ecrits: The First Complete Edition
Formations of the Unconscious: The Seminar of Jacques Lacan, Book V
Desire and its Interpretation: The Seminar of Jacques Lacan
The Other Side of Psychoanalysis
The Psychoses: The Seminar of Jacques Lacan
The Object Relation: The Seminar of Jacques Lacan, Book IV
I will likely look at all of these but I think it would be better if I start with stronger texts. :) Thank you!
Next year I will start teaching metagenomics to master students (mainly focused on bioinformatics). Can anyone recommend a text book related to this topic? I am also interested in other related material such as video seminars. Thanks
Good afternoon, my dear friends and colleagues.
As part of my research, I want to ask you a question: what state support for small business is the most important?
-Financial (state subsidies for starting a business, providing soft loans, state guarantees for creating and developing an enterprise, financing investment, innovative projects, etc.)
-Property (state and local governments create modern business incubators and techno-parks in which small enterprises can develop, the state transfers its property, premises, land, equipment for temporary or permanent use to entrepreneurs, leasing is offered on favorable terms)
-Information (the state creates resources (sites or information stands) for the exchange of business information, general information distribution systems, organizes information seminars and advertising stands, industry and intersectoral exhibitions, at which potential partners can find suppliers and buyers)
-Educational (the state develops special educational programs aimed at developing entrepreneurship skills for various segments of the population, creates conditions and programs for improving professional knowledge in the field of conducting and managing a business, and organizes training seminars and lectures)
-Consulting (the state creates and maintains centers providing consulting services on organizing, promoting development and particularities of doing business, and also compensates entrepreneurs for the costs of services of such organizations)
Legislative (the state simplifies legislation and reduces the number of procedures for registering an enterprise, reduces and simplifies the tax and administrative burden (reduces the number of forms and types of reporting), introduces preferential tax treatment for small and medium-sized enterprises).
Below is a link to my research. If it's not difficult for you, fill it out, please, it's very important!
Dear M. Li,
I watched a video of your presentation, of 01/29 at the "International Online Seminar on Interval Methods in Control Engineering", which I found very interesting.
Could you tell me please which algorithm did you use for polytopic conversion of zonotope for the attack detection and could you possibly give me some references about it?
Thanks in advance for your answer,
I am working on an intervention study with 3 different groups of students. One group represents the intervention group and consists of a seminar with a practical phase and computer science content. Another group has only a theory seminar with computer science content and the last group has a seminar with other content. The last group is used to check how stable the constructs are. The 3 measurement points are equally spaced as pre-inter-post-tests in a quasi-experimental setting. Latent growth curve modelling doesn´t fit! Is there a method that uses the strength of the 3 measurement time points with a small sample size?
Is there any Website the aggregates information on upcoming Conferences and Seminars on different subjects? Please share. Will be grateful. TIA.
In 2021, For seminars, conferences, international congresses, are you going to travel to assist or just assist by videoconference?
There are advantages and disadvantages to attending conferences? Attending videoconferences also have advantages and disadvantages? What are you going to do in 2021? What to choose ? Why ?
I think, from my point of view, that we should follow up on each other 2/ Hold discussions and dialogues 3/convening conferences and international scientific seminars to ensure communication for successful scientific research 4 / answer some of the colleagues' queries
Greetings and best wishes to all members.
I am studying for a master's degree (engineering and construction management). I want to choose a topic for my seminar and dissertation and I am very interested in remote sensing. Please help me choose a remote sensing topic related to urban construction management. Thank you very much.
Yours sincerely: Mujtaba Baqeri from Afghanistan
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, many academic conferences that we anticipate annually to meet colleagues and share ideas have been moved online. Do you feel that these online conferences offer just as much value as face-to-face conferences? If not, what could we do to safely return to the conference halls and learn from each other anew?
Due to corona-times we can not travel. However, this can not stop a good scientist from sharing and discussing the science, for obtaining new contacts and ollaborations. Such a tool (Zoom) for the communication is given to us. What do you think about starting an international scientific flesh-mob where you or your employer will make online Zoom meetings (seminars) where you invite speakers from another countries? I can say that I am trying that approach at my working place and it is nice to meet people and discuss science with them during this hard for traveling times. Also you may think about it as an advantage to save the environment and, of course, cash, since you do not need to buy plane tickets and pay for hotels. You may share this idea with your colleagues and reply here what you think.
Dear RG Colleagues,
Not being a full-time academic or a scholar, I am not clued-in on the International Scene of Conferences and Seminars in mt areas of work. Agriculture and Rural Credit and microfinance. Where can I get this information, and how can I get myself updated on an ongoing basis? Will be grateful for your kind help,
Seminars, conferences are organised lots.... did they serve the purpose... Or.. Simply these are eyes wash..

Almost all international and national scientific conferences (any kind of conferences) are cancelled/postponed amidst COVID-19 outbreak throughout the world. However, it's uncertain when this pandemic will over and when life will be normal as before. Since then what are the options to organise scientific conferences? If online, how to overcome the time differences (for the international conference) in the different part of the world? What's are your thoughts, ideas and insights?
I hope it would be an interesting discussion.
what is your suggestion about an appropriate and trending titles for Medical bacteriology Ph.D. seminar?
I am currently doing a systematic review of health education programmes among music students in higher education (i.e. conservatoire students), but the way in which I define such a programme is essential to what papers I include.
Health education initiatives were eligible if they represented stand-alone interventions or were part of wider health promotion programmes. Health education programmes were defined according to WHO (1998) and had to be any planned activity or set of activities aimed at increasing health literacy and developing life skills conducing to health (e.g. decision making, problem solving, critical thinking, interpersonal skills, stress management, coping with emotions). The content of such programmes could comprise counseling, teaching, training or other educational processes such as guided group discussions or behavioural modification strategies (Zhu, Ho, & Wong, 2013). Such programmes could be part of or separate from the formal curriculum, yet taking place in a formal education music institution (college, high-school, conservatoire or university, not clinics) incorporating any relevant health-related content (focusing on psychological and/or physical issues), multi-component or formed of a single session, of any frequency and/or length and provided via any delivery method (i.e. face-to-face, via telephone or internet). Only studies focusing on universal preventative interventions were included (i.e. ‘a measure that is desirable for everybody in the eligible population’ [Mrazek & Haggerty, 1994]).
Now, according to this definition, health education (unlike health promotion) should be aimed primarily at outcomes such as increasing knowledge and/or awareness, changing attitudes, beliefs, perceived responsibility, self-efficacy, as well as training relevant skills/abilities such as critical thinking, decision-making or problem-solving. It should not necessarily or on its own be aimed, at changing actual health-related outcomes such as reducing risk of injury or lowering depression/anxiety - for such outcomes, we are talking about health promotion (which incorporates health education but goes beyond it, also encompassing changing the broader environment and ensuring relevant services are in place). However, many authors use health promotion when they only mean health education.
I have two questions:
1. Where should I draw the line given that using such a broad definition for health education programmes (aimed at developing health literacy and life skills) means I need to include both evaluations of formal health courses (that come in the traditional format of a series of lectures and seminars) and evaluations of interventions involving group discussions, more applied sessions and more focused training of specific skills, albeit with music students in a higher education institution? They both fit into the WHO definition!
2. Given that so many authors use health promotion and health education interchangeably and that only one evaluation of a health education programme looked at knowledge, attitudes and beliefs while all the others looked at health-related outcomes (although all were described as health courses), can I include all these outcomes as part of my systematic review? After all, I am looking at the effectiveness of health education programmes with regards to any outcomes! (health literacy and attitude change on one hand, and changes in actual health outcomes on the other hand)
Many thanks! I am really curious to read your views on the above!
Dear Research Scholar,
Hope you are well.
I am interested to know that is it possible to use a quotation of a speaker's speech from a daily newspaper with proper reference.
For example, in NewYork Times it was published that "Mr. X said in a seminar titled Y that the sun rises at east". In my writing can I use this quotation with proper reference.
Seminar is a task assigned to undergraduate or post-graduate students for almost all courses. Successful completion of seminar work can be measured in terms of various skill development among students. Various skills can be named as enhancing research article reading ability, understanding of topic, knowledge up-gradation and critical evaluation of the selected topic. Also, improving communication skill, presentation skill, etc. Additionally possibility of article publication based on the seminar topic. As a guide or supervisor, what practice you follow for successful completion of Seminar?
Recently took a seminar about Blue Ocean Strategy and I'm struggling to apply the blue and red ocean ideas to current market space, is this concept still prevalent in the marketing and entrepreneurial world?
I am conducting a student evaluation of a pedagogical method that we have implemented in an undergraduate nursing program.
The evaluation consists of a questionnaire that is distributed to the students at the end of a seminar.
The questions includes demographic information (background information of participants, e.g. age), statements followed by a Likert type scale (1-5) -- evaluating learning outcomes and important aspects for the students learning relating to this specific method. Additionally, the questionnaire includes boxes where students can make free-text comments relating to the different questions.
Now, I wonder how I could best present these results in an article?
1. The initial idea with the free text-comments was to illustrate (using quotations) the statistical findings. Hence, to mix the comments with the statistics in order to illustrate some of the findings with quotations.
2. However, now, I have heard from some colleagues that I should perform a qualitative analysis on the free-text comments (e.g. content analysis, thematic analysis), and present the qualitative results separately in the article (i.e. NOT to mix quantitative and qualitative results).
Thus, my questions is if you believe most journals would want me to present the results using option 1 or 2? i.e. to mix or not to mix quantitative and qualitative results?
"The more the economists, the worst the economy"
The disagreement in theories, model as well as methodology among economists and policymaker has been a subject of inquiry in recent time. The battle ground have been conference, seminars, and journal publications. certainly, it is normal for theories put forward during economic fluctuation to upturn during the time of stability. However, the disagreements in economics literature have call for urgent discussion...……..
I was extracting genomic DNA from Streptomyces the previous day and left my gDNA in the oven (55 degrees Celsius) to dry at the very last step. I had to rush off for a seminar and completely forgot about the extracted gDNA and left it in the oven overnight. will my gDNA still be there?
I am designing a doctoral seminar on doing data analysis of ethnographic, social science research. As part of the course, I want to introduce students to a specific software program for aiding in their data analysis.
Usually as part of seminars, researches provide plots showing a trend of papers using specific key words to track the interest in a field or a set of words, where the size is proportional to how many times they have been cited. Is there a simple way to obtain these figures?
I'm searching for papers, maybe meta-analyses of Learning Effectveness of student presentations in Classroom (School) or Seminar (University) for the AUDIENCE!
Does anyone have something appropriate?

Farmers are the creators........ Creator-producers of food for all. From our breakfast to dinner. But they are probably the most neglected ones. Media focusses on artists, scientists, industrialists, social reformers, political persons,...........!
Farmers are never glorified (not even in history).
Now, in many countries, the issue of doubling the farmers' income has been taken into account by the governments. Many seminars, meetings, global meets are being organised, money is being spent to make it a global slogan.
But what's the baseline income to double? What socioeconomic status are the benchmark?
Some of them are not having the bare minimum to just live a normal life with all normal requirement for a person.
Can mere "doubling the income" do the justice?
Even if the answer is YES......
Considering all our sincere efforts and good gestures for doing the same......
Is it still a DREAM or at least a near-future REALITY?
I teach negotiation to mostly non-write adult students in Baltimore. I'm learning through books, seminars, and with their help how my whiteness makes so many aspects of my life easier. I want to share materials that are relevant to some of their specific challenges. We're learning together, but if you knew of anything in this area, I'd love to know more about it.
I am looking for researched and published articles on professional development courses/seminars/lectures on ADHD for professors/faculty in higher educational institutions (colleges or universities). I am also interested in professional development in special education/disability awareness for higher ed faculty and professors.
Many of us are organizing technically either workshop or seminar or conference. All of them are meant for giving a specific information by theme to the participants and the society. In this context, how can workshop, seminar and conference differentiated? and why are they as such called?
I'm working on my seminar term paper, in which I'm researching the perceived learning of 9th grade students during a single session of science lab class while using an SRS (student response system) on their mobile phones.
In order to generate some quantitative data, I need to form a Likert scale questionnaire.
Can you help me find any lead to Likert scale type questions that measure perceived learning?
I am now doing my Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry and my project depends on measuring crystals and solves their crystal structures. I watched the Olex program Tutorial on YouTube but I need to learn more especially solving the disorder whether by using Shelxle or Olex 2. Can someone please help me with the right resources?
One of my colleagues raised this question during a seminar (he doesn’t know the answer either) and it kinda bothers me a lot, so please help.
This maybe more or less a quantum physics question related to electron imaging stuff. So here it is
Why would the energy loss (deltaE) of an inelastic electron collision with Hydrogen different to Deuterium? Is the energy of electron in Hydrogen greater or smaller to Deuterium? and why?
I'm preparing a seminar on longevity in the context of seminars in Evolutionary Medicine. There are many perspectives about human life span, its history etc. I'm also aware that reaching longevity has been an interest in hmuan history. Someone has an idea about a book or review of the history of interest in longevity, postulated methods for reaching it, etc. Thank you
iIt gives me immense pleasure to celebrate the year 2019, the GOLDEN JUBLI YEAR OF AWARDING PHD DEGREE IN THE FIELD OF SMALL ANGLE X-RAY SCATTERING (SAXS), THE FIRST DEGREE WAS AWARDED IN THE YEAR 1969.
I am planning to celebrate the year in terms of organizing workshops, seminars, panel discussions inviting experts in the field of SAXS working across the GLOBE.
Please feel free to suggest me how best I can celebrate the year for the occasion of GOLDEN JUBLI YEAR.
Your feedback is very much important for me to proceed further,
Time goes but people will be remembered only by their contributions for the benefit of the human being.
In November 2012 the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) organised an international workshop entitled "Metrology for Dynamic Measurement". The aim was to bring together experts from the NMIs and industrial users who need traceable, reliable and comparable dynamic measurements, as well as those responsible for writing and applying specification standards and/or environment, energy saving and safety legislation.
Isn´t it time to organise such an event again and follow up on the results who have been reached in the meantime?
Dear colleagues, I wonder how a university teacher can have enough time to teach (between 06 to 12 hours/week) and participate/communicate in several conferences and seminars all the year long? How do you tackle this issue? Do you have any privileges in your own institution which allow you to travel and participate to conferences rather than teach all the time?
I have asked 100 students as to which among the 5 items they preferred in choosing the venue of the next seminar, they are given the option to choose any that they like. The data that was gathered is shown in the attached picture. The variables in the study are (Gender- F or M, Yr Level - Gr 6 or Gr 7, and the Options 1-5). My question is what statistical test would show if there is a significant difference between grades 6 and 7, and between male and female, with respect to their preferences (within variables)? or is it more sensible to test if there is significant difference with the preferences by gender vs by yr level (as a whole)?
I was looking at binomial test of preference but it is only true if you have two options, in this case I have 5.
Thank you so much in advance.
For a seminar paper I created a priming experiment design but unfortunately I have no experience in programming. Are there any (preferably free or not expensive) tools for conducting priming experiments?
There are two different kinds of trials planned, one consisting of one prime and one target. Here the reaction time shall be measured. The second consists of one prime and two targets. The participants would have to select one of the two targets. Here, the correctness of the target selection as well as the reaction time shall be measured.
Thanks a lot for your help!
Does anyone know of any international seminar or international conference, where can I present my Phytostabilization Project for a tailings dam in Copiapó, Chile?
The species used in the dam was Schinus polygamus.
In one well known personality test there are 16 major types all of which are regarded as normal and useful in research.
I recall a seminar in which the group activity was to answer a question and take a place in line depending on the answer. One question was this. If a piece of work is due in 3 weeks, and normally takes 2 days to complete when would you start the work? I took my place in line with a colleague near the end that preferred to start as soon as possible and finish early. Then I looked down the line and saw associates including my manager and my assistant at the far end of the line.
With several seminars of different types I came to the opinion that organizations waste most of their resources trying to standardize a personality type that is thought to be appropriate for the work, succeeding by high turnover in selecting personality profiles while failing in research objectives.
The seminars changed my approach to management practice of deciding what needed to be assigned, changed, scheduled, and prioritized.
How Many Personality Types Can A Research Group Use Productively?
My team (of graduate students) are working on a project for a business incubator that provides seminars, round table discussion and other educational programming. We are interested in best practices for forming, nuturing and sustaining learning communities.
Hi all. Does anyone of you have experiences with the management of a paper-review process? I want to set up one online, where authors can submit their papers and reviewers vote for them. It should support a double-blind review process and be able to send the papers and reviews automatically to the authors and reviewers via email.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union and thanks to this disintegration in the philosophical space of Russia, significant quantitative and qualitative changes took place. To a certain extent, this process also touched upon the Russian philosophy of history as part of the philosophical science. Actually, the philosophy of history in Russia has gone far beyond the limits of Soviet historical materialism and now exists as a collection of diverse philosophical and historical concepts and theories whose creators and carriers prefer to improve your philosophical and historical views and their propaganda. Mutual criticism of supporters of various philosophical and historical trends remains in the shady part of the Russian philosophical space (opposition of dissertations, discussions at scientific seminars and symposiums) and is not carried to the pages of journals and books, as a rule. Therefore, strictly scientific, objective systematization of modern Russian philosophical and historical theories, concepts and schools is a very important task for the Russian and world philosophy of history.

I am having a proposal for different seminar topics on Interdisciplinary topics of Engineering and Academics
like Education, Economics and Mechatronics and Pattern optimization. I am looking forward for research organizations who will fund research in such symposiums using a fixed model and also market the name of their organization for conducting such research seminars through mutual partnerships.
Some of the models avalaible which this funding bodies can benefit from are
Exhibitor benefits: • One exhibit booth (Size-3X3 sqm). • 1 page publication of the exhibitor profile in the souvenir • Promotion through the conference website. • Promotional video on company products during the conference (Post session and Breaks). • One complimentary scientific program registration. • Logo recognition in the Scientific program, Conference banner and flyer. • One A4 flyer insert in the conference kit. • An opportunity to sponsor 1 Poster Presentation Award. • Post conference -submission of the mailing list.
I have an essay in which I would like to take further into my honours thesis. Is it possible, to use the essay that I already have written and then incorporate an addendum?
Or do I need to start the whole work from scratch?
I do understand of course, that I am required to follow protocol, i.e. submitting a proposal, seminar presentation, etc.
Research paper writings is part of MSC/PHD training, is it worthwhile?
