As soon as you start the stage/thesis in ISISLab
The things to do as soon as you start working are:
- Request an account for laboratory PCs (if using Windows);
- Request an account on the ISISLab website;
- Request registration on the mailing list.
The contact person for registration is Matteo D’Auria.
The account on the laboratory PC
The account is necessary to use the PCs made available to the laboratory. Usually, you can choose one of the free PCs and use it for all your thesis work (it is possible to change PCs from time to time but we do not recommend it for convenience).
You can configure, install software and format “your” PC, subject to authorization by a contact person.
Some tips and useful information:
- Every time you turn on/off the PC, your home directory is transferred to/from network storage. To speed up operations, we advise you not to overload your user folder (Desktop, Documents, …).
- Each account is associated with a virtual disk Z :, use the one to store your data.
- The share samba \\limbo\pub is a shared directory accessible by all, used mainly to exchange files. Do not rely on this folder as an archive: it is the first thing we empty when we need space.
- If you need a Linux machine or install software, ask one of the contact persons.
- At the end of each day, turn off the PC and monitor.
The account on the laboratory site
The laboratory site is WordPress. Students have the possibility to change their profile and personal page.
Update your profile by entering your name and surname, social links and profile photos.
Periodically, remember to update your personal page. Here is the minimum information you need to enter:
- updates on the status of your thesis work;
- link to your seminars (find all the seminars on the Events page);
- abstract, index, bibliography of the thesis;
- links to the software and libraries used.
Consultate la pagina Template per avere un’idea di come impostare la vostra pagina personale.
The laboratory mailing list
The mailing list is the main tool with which we send notices of seminars (about once a week) or important and urgent communications (very, very rarely).
When you hold a seminar
About a week before the seminar, contact Giuseppina Palmieri the date, time and a short abstract of the seminar.
Remember to put all the seminar information on your web page, indicating the index of the topics covered, links used, bibliographic material, etc..
When you prepare for the graduation session
Typically you will be asked for a final (complete) seminar on your work and, a few days before the thesis, the proof of the presentation of the thesis that lasts a short time (5-6 minutes) and therefore must be prepared with care and attention.
Some tips on short seminars can help you.
