    • Sammanläggningsavhandling preferred

Research Seminar

  • Will start November
  • Jan-Åke’s lectures after Christmas

    • Elina has information

Scientific Methods and Research Practice, 6 credits

  • Wednesday course: Part 1 of the course starts October 19th, ends December 14th. Part 2 starts in February
  • Thursday course: Part 1 of the course starts October 20th, ends December 15th. Part 2 starts in February

  • Lectures both days 9.00-16.30 at Frimurarehotellet
  • October 20th: Mathematical Statistics. Optimization
  • October 21st: Continuum Mechanics, Theory of Elasticity and Contact Problems. Mathematical Modelling in Biology

Riktlinjer för betygsnämndens sammansättning

  • See
    • Betygsnämnd: Conflict of interest – jäv: Related, working group, co-writer, not former supervisor

Master’s courses (recommendations)

  • PhD students should not register for Master’s courses
  • Students should instead agree with course leaders that they can follow courses without being registered
  • Results should be reported directly in Forskar-Ladok

PhD programs will be evaluated by HSV

follow up action plan ndi
Follow-up action plan NDI


  • Introduction process being reviewed at the moment
  • Expectations of students and supervisors still needs to be discussed
    • Mostimportant – expectations – to be formalized

Environment and postgraduate studies

  • Workload was discussed with supervisors and at follow-up meetings
  • Students were informed about Feelgood and Studenthälsan
  • Students were informed about the guidance services of the university library
    • Onlyfiveor sixparticipants. Verygood information, everyoneshould go there! Bengt Ove willorganizea new presentation.

Courses and seminars

  • The need of and the possibilities for organizing advanced courses and seminars were discussed with heads of divisions and supervisors

Scientific conferences and networks

  • The need for a recommendation for participation in a certain number of conferences during the time of study together with the heads of the divisions and the supervisors
  • Participation in conferences was discussed in connection with revision of study plans
  • The recommendation will probably be part of the subjects’ new study plans
follow up action plan ndi3
Follow-up action plan NDI


  • The department’s introductory pedagogical course still needs to be evaluated
  • At least one course meeting for every course, where PhD students are involved, should have been organized
    • Course meetings to be followed up. The director of studies/examinator is responsiblebuttheyneed to know that it is important – to be formalized

Equal opportunities

  • Students have been informed about policies concerning equal opportunities
  • Students have been informed about routines concerning discrimination and sexual harassment
