Seminar’s objectives:
Writing academic papers, proposals, abstracts, reports, etc. is a common but sometimes difficult task for any researcher. This workshop is designed to support you during your writing process. We will meet regularly to discuss your work in progress and make suggestions for improving it. Any type of writing at any stage of the writing process can be included. A willingness to cooperate and give feedback on the work of other participants is, however, necessary. More general input on particular issues of the English language or of academic writing can also be given if requested. The first meeting with further information is on January 21st.

Application starts at 15. November until 22. December 2010
