Research Question Videos

To gain short and comprehensive introductions into the different disciplines involved in Perceptronics, we have decided to collect short video answers from different leading experts on important research questions. With these videos we hope to bridge the gap between the different expertise, look at important challenges facing us and discuss about open questions from the different perspectives.

What happens with the videos? Will they be published?

The videos will be used as an input and a way to structure the course and programme of the two workshop days, e.g. as introductory input for workshop sessions on different topics. The videos will only be accessible for the other workshop participants. Otherwise we would ask for your permission separately.

How should the videos look like?

The videos should not be longer than 3 minutes each and be understandable for the participants from different areas of expertise. It is not necessary to have professional video hardware. A modern laptop webcam or smartphone camera usually produces satisfactory results. We would recommend, however, that you use a microphone or headset for a better audio quality and make sure that your camera device is mounted on a stable surface, such as on a table or tripod. If you are lacking technical devices or need advice on which software/hardware to use, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Despite that, the format remains open to you. You may use PowerPoint with your comments as voice-over (for a tutorial see:, film yourself explaining something, film your note taking/drawing/… or whatever other format comes to your mind. To give you some idea, you find a video below made by Jun.-Prof. Ilona Croy on “What is perception?”. Other possible inspirations may be the following links to educational youtube videos Olfactory Tract explained by MedSimplified, Olfactory Receptors by Alex Lee, Videos by maiLab or from the videos of the science communication competition “FameLab” (FameLab videos), where the goal is to present your scientific projects in 3min in an easy to understand way.
