For research talks: you should treat this talk as if you were giving a seminar to a general audience. For example, imagine that you were invited to give a talk in our EES seminar series or that you are giving a talk as part of a job interview for a postdoc or a professorship. You should explain the background clearly, even though many in the audience will already be familiar with it. It is okay if the results are still preliminary, as you should give an update on the current state of your research. The target length should be 30-40 minutes, followed by a discussion. Everyone in the audience should take notes regarding mistakes/typos on the slides and parts of the presentation that were unclear. After the talk, everyone should give feedback to the presenter so that he/she may improve the next talk.
For bachelor/master thesis presentations: you should describe your project in about 20 minutes. Even if your thesis is not completely finished, you should still present on the assigned date and describe the current state of your project.
Students doing shorter research projects (IRTs, MEME short projects, Forschungspraktika) should give a short presentation of their project. If the project is not yet finished, you should present the current state, with background, methods, results, and goals of the project (about 15 minutes).
