About

The Game and Media Technology (GMT) Colloquium is a series of talks and research paper presentations on GMT-related topics at the Department of Information and Computing Sciences at Utrecht University. Participation is mandatory for all students that enrolled in the GMT master programme for the academic year 2013/2014 or later.

You can see the Osiris page for the course here. A week before each seminar, you will receive an email announcing the talks and they will be listed on the upcoming sessions page.

Tentative presentation days for the 2017/2018 are 13 October, 3 November, 24 November, 15 December, 12 January and 19 January, at 15:15-17:00.

The main focus of the colloquium is to give students the opportunity to prepare and practice giving a talk, and to widen the knowledge about different research directions related to GMT. Furthermore, there will be invited talks from GMT research and/or the industry every now and then.

The requirements to pass the course depend on the year in which you started following the master programme.

Requirements for GMT master students who started in the academic year 2014/2015 or later:

  • In teams of two: Give a 20-30 minutes presentation on a GMT-related research paper

  • Attend at least 15 colloquium sessions (including the session in which you present yourself).

Requirements for GMT master students who started in the academic year 2013/2014:

The above requirements may be fulfilled during the whole length of the master programme. There will be one colloquium session per month, with each session usually consisting of two presentations. Additional sessions may be added during the year, depending on the number of participants and the availability of invited speakers.
