Program
The
 idea 
with 
the 
program
 is 
to 
invite 
six 
distinguished
 scientists 
during the range 
of 
one 
year. 
For
 each 
visit, 
a 
number 
of 
activities 
are 
suggested:

  1. Before
 the
 visit,
 the
 students
 interested
 will
 participate
 in
 a
 Journal
 Club, where
 some
 aspect
 of 
the 
visitor’s 
research 
will 
be 
discussed.
  2. The
 visiting 
professor
 will 
give 
a 
lecture 
open 
for 
a
 general 
audience.
  3. The 
visiting 
professor 
will 
together 
with
 participating 
students 
and 
postdocs, have
 a
 chalk‐talk
 session
 where
 the
 visitor
 will
 lead
 an
 informal presentation/discussion.
  4. The
 visiting
 professor
 should
 stay
 enough
 time
 (3‐5
 days)
 such
 that
 those students 
that 
are 
interested 
in 
a 
personal 
meeting 
with
 the 
visitor
 should
 be given 
the 
opportunity.
  5. A
 social
 event
 with
 the
 visiting
 professor
 and
 some
 of
 the
 students.
 For example, 
a 
dinner
 
or 
a 
excursion.

A
 main
 feature
 of
 the
 program
 is
 that
 the
 students
 will
 be
 given
 the
 chance
 to interact
 with
 the
 visitors
 without
 too
 much
 interference
 from
 senior
 faculty.
 PhD students

 will
 be
 awarded
 academic
 credits
 if
 they participate 
in
 the 
journal 
club
 and
 attend
 the 
lectures 
and 
chalk‐talks.
