A dissertation is a project in which the PhD student is both boss and employee having different fields of duties simultaneously. This can lead to various conflicts (nice weather outside, but no work done). How can a thesis be scheduled? This session is supposed to contribute to establishing a feasible timing and working schedule.
In addition to the previously mentioned workshops, courses from the general course offerings of the participating institutes can be attended.
