Along with that, my Ph.D. defense has been scheduled to take place on:

Time:  13.00 — 16.00 CE(S)T
Room:  ACM15 B1/1.008 (Auditorium)

A map (with interactive features) to this address — showing a walking route from the nearest city train station, Sydhavn St., to AAU Copenhagen — can be found at the link: Sydhavn-AAUC-map.htm.

I will update this page with the latest developments – related to my Ph.D. defense event – as they arrive.


Here you can find a link to the e-publication version of my dissertation, also trackable through my public AAU profile page (... and eventually, possibly a link to a video edit of my PhD presentation, if I decide to upload it)

Unboxing the prints

July 6, 2015 the prints of my thesis arrived to AAUC; July 7 I was able to take pictures during "unboxing":

Preliminary assessment

July 31, 2015 I have received the preliminary assessment, that my PhD thesis is acceptable for public defense.

(This is the final confirmation/approval required for the Ph.D. defense to take place, and after which the department sends out formal invitations)

The defense

August 13, 2015 the defense was held, and everything went fine :) The final awarding of the Ph.D. degree is, however, yet to be announced.

Thanks to everyone who attended and showed interest! :)

Recommendation of award of the PhD degree

September 18, 2015, I received a notification from the administration, that at the meeting of The Academic Council, the final assessment of the Institute was to join the recommendation of the Assessment Committee, to award the PhD degree to me. This means that after supplying some additional information, I should soon be receiving my PhD diploma.

October 20, 2015, I was notified that I am invited to the formal PhD ceremony, to be held in Europahallen, Aalborg Kongres & Kultur Center, on Friday 29 January 2016. I hope I'll be able to post a picture from there on this page :)
