Oral presentations (26 to 29 October 2009 - half-day sessions)

When authorised by their authors the presentations files are available - under the PDF format - using the tables below

Each participant made a 10 min scientific presentation (ca. 10 slides), in English, on his / her research project and was ready for 30 min detailed scientific discussion during the workshop, also exclusively in English, chaired by the workshop participant in charge of reviewing his/her manuscript. Each presentation was especially focused on :

- The scientific context of the research subject,
- The research questions that are expected to be answered during the PhD preparation, together with their environmental justification,
- The field and/or lab and/or model methodologies that are currently or will be used, together with their justification for addressing the questions presented before,
- One or two major results obtained so far,
- The planned research activity till the end of the PhD (or after its termination, in the case of a PhD which is already finished).

Workshop participants were reminded of the large diversity of background knowledge within their colleagues, i.e. from natural to human sciences : thus these oral presentations should have been extremely clear and well illustrated, allowing non-specialists of the research field to understand the raised environmental questions and the applied methods.

Each participant received a manuscript to review, using a referee report form : this review was expected to be filled and sent back prior to 2 October 2009 to Daniel Thevenot, who then sent these reports to the author of the refereed manuscript. Thus WWW-YES-2009-Brazil participants were ready, after their oral presentation, to answer to comments and questions raised by his/her referee.

As for previous editions since 2008, all participants are offered to publish their paper in an Open Source WWW-YES-2009-Brazil specific collection (HAL): 10 papers have been recently published within the 18 presented.

A CD-ROM version of the proceedings draft version was given to each participant upon arrival.
