How to create better, more effective presentations/papers -  by Jean-Luc Doumont

There are two videos on the right discussing how to

create effective slides and how to present scientific topics

to wider audiences.

A short overview of the topics addressed in the video

can also be found in J-L Doumont's site at the links below.

     * shortcomes in scientific writing

     * English communication for scientists  

Improving your skills in public speaking

A few presentations on public speaking:

- How to avoid death by PowerPoint, D.J.P. Phillips

- The magical science of storytelling, D.J.P. Phillips

- The 110 techniques of communication, D.J.P. Phillips

And a few examples of nice scientific presentations

- A question of survival: why we hunted the Higgs, S. Goldfarb

- The LHC and the beginning of physics, J. Beacham

Recorded lectures


     * Baryogenesis and Leptogenesis, M. Shaposhnikov (Lecture 1, 2, 3, 4)

     * CP violation and the baryogenesis puzzle, D. Morrissey (Lecture 1, 2, 3)
