I am having a one-week research visit in a far east country.
I was asked by the head of the hosting group to give a presentation. I have never done this before, hence I am quite confused about the content of this presentation.
To provide you some extra context: I am the first member of our group visiting this group, at the same time I am the most junior member in our group. As I am visiting this time, we expect in a reasonable amount of time to have a member of their group visiting us.
Some information that I could include in the presentation are:
- information about our group (history, group members, research focus, ongoing projects, methodologies, tools...)
- information about myself (personal info, academic experience, research focus, detailed explanation of most recent work, desire to learn from the visit...)
- information about the city we are located at (to make the case that it is worth sending a student...)
I think the list is too extensive. What would be a goldilocks in terms of duration and content to include in the presentation?
I have to make the most out of this visit and presentation, to be able to build upon it later on. The hosting PI is top 5 in the world in his respective field.
