  • Each session consists of 3 or 4 talks. Each talk is 20 minutes long (strictly enforced). The question period is open until no more question are asked. The order of the talks will be posted on the net. However, the session-host may choose to change the order to enhance the understanding of the topic.
  • Speakers could use, slides, transparencies, or power-point to deliver their talks. If you are going to use power-point please come 20 minutes early with your presentation in a USB key. It will be played on a Windows PC.
  • The talks are and should always be informal. Last minutes data are most welcome (stay away from published results). The titles should reflect the informality of the session and chosen to convey the contents in a funny way.
  • All participants are encourage to pose questions and interrupt to increase the understanding of the topic and stimulate fruitful discussion. The speakers should encourage the audience participation by all means necessary !!!
  • The speakers are also encouraged to seek the audience help for technical or intellectual advice if needs be.
  • In short, think of the RiboClub as a mega lab-meeting
  • Note to all participants: The RiboClub still offers a $1000 award for the best seminar.
