Guidelines for attending
Do not use the camera.
Mute your microphone.
In Zoom you will first be placed in the waiting room. Please introduce yourself with your name, rather than with your IP address or computer name.
If anyone has a question and wants to oppose ‘ex auditorio’, please write in the chat window of Zoom (1) “XY (your name) has a question" and (2) the question in brief. The chair of the defense will evaluate whether your question is opportune, and you will be given the word after the two opponents have concluded.
When you are being given the word, you switch on your microphone and camera. Ensure briefly whether you are being heard.
We advise you to test your own equipment before attending.
The chat is not to be used for general discussions.
The doctoral thesis is available for public review. For those who want access to the thesis in pdf-form, please send an email to Ole Wiggo Røstad – firstname.lastname@example.org
