The CAST research seminar is a forum for academic debate, organized around 1 or sometimes 2 papers. The paper(s) are typically draft journal articles or book chapters and the discussion directed to help preparing the text for publication. The research seminars will be conducted on the basis of the assumption that the papers have been read by the participants, and therefore they will not be presented (although possibly summarised). These seminars are primarily for invited researchers. However, if you wish to participate in one of the coming seminars please contact the paper giver. In contrast to the Inspirational Workshops, the research seminars will allow the full, necessary usage of specialised terminology according to subject matter and disciplinary audience for the publication.

For further information on future Research Seminars please contact our student assistants.
